Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
Walk from Maggie's Cottage to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which stretches the whole length of the Welsh coastline and encircles the St Davids Peninsula. Enjoy fabulous cliff top walking and breathtaking scenery within easy reach, never more than a couple of miles from the House.
The path follows the rugged coastline and encircles the peninsula through Whitesands, Porthsele, St Justinians, Porthclais and Caerfai Bay - walk as far as you like and get a dedicated walkers' bus back. In the summer buses call in at all beaches, coves and villages along the coast.
Whitesands and the Peninsula beaches
Whitesands Beach, just down the road is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach - so it is popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts. Whitesands is a lovely place to walk - your dog can walk there too between October and the end of April - and when you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.
On the other side of the city is Caerfai Bay. The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is a wonderful rock-pooling, game-playing platform for sandy heaven. If you walk the coastal path round the Peninsula you will find a number of small coves and less accessible beaches - at many times of year you will have them to yourself!
Do visit Abereiddi Beach just a short drive away and the stunning Blue Lagoon, the rolling surf at Newgale and further along the coastline the golden sands and vibrant seaside villages of Broad Haven and Little Haven.
The City of St Davids
Although St Davids has the status of a city it is, in reality, a small village. Useful as a source of groceries - there is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers and greengrocers, as well as an ice cream and chocolate shop and a bank. There are also galleries and shops - clothes, gifts and outdoor gear; come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!
Don't miss the outdoor farmers' market on Thursdays throughout the summer on the Cross Square - all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels.
St Davids Cathedral and the Bishop'sPalace
Wander down through the Pebbles to the Cathedral and admire the view. St Davids Cathedral, both a historical monument as well as a place of worship, was built in 1181 and has weathered the centuries with varying fortunes. Visit the refectory in the newly restored cloisters for coffee or a meal and take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place.
Across the tiny river Alun is the ruined Bishop's Palace with its lovely decorated stonework, rose window, halls and stairways. Restored sufficiently to fire the imagination of young and old, let your children play while they absorb the atmosphere of this site of medieval power and influence.
St Non's Chapel and Holy Well
Located on a stunning coastal site with dramatic views it is believed that St Non gave birth to St Davids at this very special place. It is wonderful for a picnic stop along the coast path.
Boat Trips - book in St Davids to visit the offshore islands
Boat trips to suit all tastes leave from St Justinians during the season (April to October) to circle Ramsey Island and to see the marine wildlife, birds and spectacular Pembrokeshire coastal scenery. It really is a must for your St.Davids stay.
Go dolphin and whale spotting too with longer trips out to Grassholm and the lighthouse! Book your tickets in St Davids.
Oriel y Parc
A charming village with an attractive harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied by small fishing boats. Don't miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in - or outside at Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed where locally caught crab and lobster are also served.
Outdoor Activities, horse riding and golf
Pembrokeshire is a centre for water-based activities of all sorts. Home of the sport of 'Coasteering', it is also a magnet for surfers and windsurfers, sailors, canoeists and rowers. If you are skilled at your chosen sport the coastline is an open venue but if you are less experienced, the County is well served with centres offering safe, instructor-led activities.
There are golf courses to suit all levels of skill - with one of the most dramatic small courses overlooking Whitesands beach, just a mile away.
