The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which forms part of the footpath running around the entire Welsh coast is a five minute walk away. There are plenty of glorious beaches within a few minutes’ drive (see ) and the surrounding network of quiet country lanes make it the ideal base for cycling. There is also good fishing from the beaches and rocky outcrops. The more adventurous may choose to hire sea kayaks, surfboards or wetsuits from Broadhaven or they might prefer to hire a horse from Nolton Stables to gallop along the beach near Druidstone.
Just off the coast are the two internationally-famous nature reserves of Skomer and Skockholm. Free from mammalian predators, these boast huge numbers of ground- and cliff-nesting sea birds. From April to mid-July puffins are probably the greatest draw, but in August birders are drawn by literally hundreds of thousands of Manx shearwaters which wheel in at night to avoid the area’s numerous black backed gulls and peregrines. It is possible to stay overnight on the islands to witness – or more appropriately listen to – this spectacular phenomenon, but places need to be booked months in advance. Centuries of isolation and protection mean all the wildlife on the islands, from little owls to wild rabbits, is remarkably tame.
Three local beaches boast ‘Blue Flag’ status which is awarded to particularly clean and well-managed popular beaches and a little further afield (but still within a half-hour drive) there are a further 14 blue (highest) and green (excellent) beaches between Pembroke and Tenby. See ‘Latest’ for a more detailed guide to the nearest sands. And a little to the north is the spectacular Blue Lagoon, a flooded former slate quarry which now regularly hosts the Red Bull World Cliff Diving Championships (next to be held in September 2016).
