Pembrokeshire Coast National Park tourist guide
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park features the impressive 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path walking trail. As you walk it, some of many islands off this part of the Welsh coast can be seen, with the larger and better-known ones being Skomer, Ramsey Caldey and Grassholm Islands. There are also some fine beaches and pretty, natural bays - including Milford Haven estuary and harbour where several rivers meet - as well as some nationally important breeding sites for sea birds.
Located on the St David's peninsula, St David's is the ecclesiastical capital of Wales and the UK's smallest city. It also has the distinction of being the only city in the United Kingdom that lies completely inside a national park, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It is superb for basing a walking, boating or riding holiday.
The splendid St David's Cathedral, the 13th century Tower Gate and the Oceanarium, the largest sea aquarium in west Wales are all worth a visit, as is the Refectory at the cathedral, said to be one of the most beautiful restaurants in Wales. There are some great family-owned and run shops, lovely traditional restaurants and pubs in the city.
One of the most striking and certainly most visited attraction in Pembrokeshire, whether for a short afternoon stroll or a major Pembrokeshire investigation is the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only all-coastal national park in the UK and a great place to explore. It offers unrivalled scenery, wonderous cliffs, magnificent sandy beaches, a superb variety of wildlife and flora and provides a captivating summary of the history and heritage of Wales from past Neolithic times to the present day.
