Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

 Explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

Geologists love this place, with its rocky outcrops, blowholes and glacial meltwaters. Britain’s only truly coastal national park offers acres of breathing space for those seeking to get away from it all, with fresh air whipping in off the Irish Sea. If you like beaches, this park is ideal; it incorporates some of the best – not just in Wales or Britain but the world. It’s also got the magical islands of Skomer and Skokholm, Caldey, and Ramsey. The action isn’t all on the coast, though. Two inland areas are also within the boundaries of the national park, namely the Preseli Mountains, and the upper reaches of the Daugleddau Estuary, often called ‘the secret waterway’.

For wildlife lovers, this place teems with huge populations of seabirds, seals, dolphins, porpoises and whales. Even leatherback turtles have been seen here. If you are trying to decide when to walk, remember that spring and summer are good times for migratory birds and wild flowers. Walk in late summer and you’re likely to see migrating whales in the waters below and lots of butterflies. In autumn you’ll be sharing the rocks with seals that come ashore to give birth.
