Salem lies within the Pencaer Peninsula in the Pembrokeshire National Park, which offers a spectacular landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills, and a place of sanctuary for wildlife.
There is much evidence of a long history of the shaping of the landscape. Enjoy the rich heritage of castles and tombs, ancient cottages and traditional fishing ports. The area is a living, working landscape which is cared for by the National Park Authority who are working for a sustainable future.
The Pencaer Peninsula is one of the most unspoiled areas of the Pembrokeshire coast. As well as the magnificent coastal walking and wonderful clean, pure air there is an abundance of wildlife. It is possible to see porpoises and spot dolphins and grey seals. Bird watchers will see amongst many others Chough, Peregrine, Gannets and Manx Shearwater from the dramatic rocky Strumble Head with its unmanned lighthouse and bird observatory (15 minute walk). The whole area is rich in megalithic remains and prehistoric sites, a treat for naturalists and geologists.
There are beautiful clean, safe beaches, especially at Newport, Porthgain and Whitesands (St David's). Goodwick, next to Fishguard Harbour, is safe for most watersports. There are also opportunities for good fishing from the long breakwaters. The ferry to Ireland leaves from the far side of the harbour. Fishguard itself is a small, timeless market town with a range of shops including a supermarket, art galleries, pubs, cinema and several restaurants. With many children's activities available the area is an ideal place for a family holiday in Wales.
