Things To Do in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire has a gentle beauty that appeals to artists and photographers alike. It is a land of lush fertile valleys, carved by deep rivers and rolling hills. However, it is Pembrokeshire's unspoilt coastline that is the 'jewel in the crown'. Famous for its 186 miles of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and numerous off shore islands teaming with wildlife, it is 'God's Little Acre'. Discover mile upon mile of magnificent sandy beaches or hidden coves, flanked by golden dunes and vast, vibrant, vertical limestone cliffs.

Here, in West Wales there is so much to do, and so little time.
