Things to Do in Pembrokeshire
Some of our favourite places to visit and things to do in Pembrokeshire
Get in the water
Being a coastal county, we think that one of the best things to do in Pembrokeshire during your stay is to try out one of the many watersports on offer. Pembrokeshire is the home of coasteering; local company TYF Adventure created the sport and now many companies in the area offer this exciting adventure sport. It’s a mixture of climbing, cliff jumping and swimming, and all coasteering sessions are done with a professional guide. It’s lots of fun!
If you’re not so keen on cliff jumping, then why not try the more traditional surfing approach? The obliging Irish sea often stirs up a swell along our sandy beaches. Local company Haven Sports offer surf rental equipment if you’d like to give it a try.
Alternatively, the long flat sands at Broad Haven beach make it the perfect shallow spot for a warm swim when the tide is in over the sand. In every instance, we urge you to check tide times and weather forecasts to keep yourselves safe.
One of the most popular things to do in Pembrokeshire no matter what time of year is walking the coastal path. A fantastic stretch for a day-long walk is north towards Newgale beach. It takes in several secret beaches not visible from the road and passes the beach waterfall at Druidstone, as well as old coal mine chimneys and rock formations such as the impressive Rickets Head near Nolton Haven.
Alternatively, if you’re too tired to walk back to Atlantic View after a ramble up the coastline, then check out the bus times for the Puffin Shuttle. The bus number is 400 and it travels along the coast road from St Davids all the way down to Martin’s Haven. You can catch it from outside the Spar shop and Post Office in Broad Haven.
If you’d rather enjoy life on the open waves, then a boat trip from Martin’s Haven is a must! A visit to one of the many beautiful islands off this coast is one for your bucket list but be sure to book in advance as this is one of the most popular things to do in Pembrokeshire and the boats fill up quickly. Visit the puffins on Ramsey island, or the many bird colonies at Skockhold, Skomer and the second largest gannet colony in the world on Grassholm.
Your view from Atlantic View is defined by the stunning St Davids peninsula, so why not take a trip to the smallest city in Europe? Visit the famous cathedral of our patron saint and take a walk around the artisan boutique shops and narrow city streets.
