In and around Nolton Haven:
The little beach at Nolton Haven is a nice, sandy and sheltered cove with high cliffs on both sides. Next to the car park is The Mariners Inn open during the day in the summer season for drinks and lunch. Plant fossils are found in large boulders and rocks at the base of the cliffs and, in some places, veins of coal can be seen.
The shallow fall of the beach allows perfect swimming conditions for swimmers and children. during a high tide sea fishermen can be seen on the pebble shore.
The house was the family home in 1972 when Rod and Jane Bell opened it to guests. Stone built around 1850 and substantially altered towards the end of the 1890’s. The house stands in 20 acres of wild garden on the cliff above the safe, sandy beach of Druidston Haven.
Children and pets are made welcome and the atmosphere encourages visitors to treat the place as a second home. Books and maps are available and there is plenty of information on the locality. The restaurant has been in the Good Food Guide consistently since 1974.
Solva, jewel of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, situated within an ancient harbour on the beautiful West Wales coast.
An ideal location for walking, sailing or simply relaxing amongst the many local craft shops, art galleries, pottery and gift shops set in beautiful scenery. Solva has many resturants catering for all tastes and budgets, making it a perfect place to visit for a walkers lunch or for a relaxed evening meal.
St Davids and Whitesands:
Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral but St Davids is in reality a small attractive village. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, St Davids is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife. Whitesands Bay, one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, carries the prestigious Blue Flag Award.
St Davids Cathedral has been the dominant presence since the 12th century and was a popular pilgrimage destination throughout the middle ages and indeed remains to this day.
Newgale provides the ideal location for water sports. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is a safe beach for the young and not so expert.
As well as watersports, Newgale is renowned amongst walkers and sunbathers alike. With a wide vista of unspoilt sandy beach and an unrivaled ocean view it is no wonder that this stretch of coastline is most popular during the summer months.
Broad Haven and Little Haven:
This little town just over the hill (or round the cliffs at lowtide) from Little Haven, has a few shops and pubs. Like Newgale watersports are popular. However the deep and wide sandy beach is perfect for walkers to sunbathers.
Little Haven really lives up to its name for it is just a little haven. With a couple of shops and a couple of pubs, it is not commercialised but is very popular with families in the summer. When the tide is out, there are clean sands to play on, rocks to clamber over, and a stream to splash in as well as the sea – just what young children want.
