Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Visitor & Tourism Guide



'The UK's only truly coastal National Park'
Markets itself as ‘the UK's only truly coastal National Park’.* High cliffs and sandy beaches stretch for miles along the coastline. Wooded estuaries and high hills inland. The Park has many prehistoric monuments from caves to stones to hill forts. An ancient and stunning landscape.

Established in 1952 and 'Arfordir Penfro' in Welsh, the Park attracts in the region of 4 million visitors a year and about 13 million visitor days. The only UK National Park established predominantly owing to its coastline.

South west Wales
At the tip of south west Wales, within the county of Pembrokeshire, running along the coast that looks out over the Bristol Channel around to the Irish Sea.

A sweep of coastline punctuated by destinations such as Tenby, Pembroke, Milford Haven, St David's, Fishguard, Newport and, on the north fringe, Cardigan. These are great places in which to base yourself when exploring the Park.

Prehistory
Humans have lived in the National Park for tens of thousands of years. Pentre Ifan, for example, dates from around 3500BC and is the largest megalithic tomb in Wales.

Beaches and cliffs
As is the case with Cornwall, there are countless sandy coves set beneath high cliffs and a lesser number of big, dramatic stretches of beach facing the Irish Sea and Bristol Channel. Try Broad Haven Beach (and St Bride's Bay), Westdale Bay Beach, Marloes Sands and the beaches around Tenby Harbour. We'd recommend the coastal walking around Martin's Haven/Wooltack Point with superb views across to Skomer and Skokholm Islands.

Basically, it's one long Heritage Coast split into different sections under different names so you can't go wrong.

Cathedral and castle
St David's Cathedral is essential visiting. Try also Carew Castle and .

Pembrokeshire Coast Path
If you've walked parts or all of the South West Coast Path, Start (or End), we'd recommend spending time hiking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Magnificent.

Preseli Hills
Last, if you want to get away from the coastline, head for the Preseli Hills. There are dozens of prehistoric monuments here (including Pentre Ifan).
