Wales' Year of the Sea


Image title


This year Visit Wales is celebrating the ‘Year of the Sea’ and I couldn't think of a better focus for the New Year. 

Pembrokeshire provides a never ending source of adventure and beauty to all that visit, and the sea is at the heart of what makes it so special.

In celebration of 'Year of the Sea, 2018' we will be doing a feature each month, via both our newsletters and blog, on our favourite coastal spots in Pembrokeshire that are essential to visit during your time here. From beautiful islands and harbour towns, to long sandy beaches and incredible stretches of coastline that have to be explored.

WHY DID 'VISIT WALES' CHOOSE THE YEAR OF THE SEA?


'Year of the Sea 2018 is a continuation of our work to challenge old perceptions of Wales by promoting our world-class products,events and experiences, our people, places, our language and practices — in fact everything that makes Wales a distinctive place to visit.'

WHY PEMBROKESHIRE?

PEMBROKESHIRE COASTAL PATH

Wales has endless amounts to offer but Pembrokeshire steals the heart of those who live, work and visit. 

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Parkis 186 miles long and hugs the magnificent coastline of Pembrokeshire. 

Pembrokeshire is also Britain's only Coastal National Park.




BEACHES

The coastal park passes 58 beaches and 14 harbours meaning the amount of beautiful spots to explore is endless!

We have many of the best beaches in Britain with

eleven blue flags; twelve green coast, eleven seaside, and twenty one rural seaside awards.

ISLANDS

Off the Pembrokeshire coast there are a number of incredible small islands to explore from Caldey Island, which can be seen from Penally Abbey, to Skomer and Ramsey Island.

These islands boast an enourmous variety of wildlife from puffins to dolphins.

COAST LINE

Pembrokeshire has North, West and South facing coasts meaning that the views are constantly changing and diverse. 

No part of Pembrokeshire is more than 14 miles from the sea, so escaping to embrace some sea air is never further than 30 minutes drive away…

MOUNTAINS

…and if you get tired from all that sea air, Pembrokeshire is also home to the wild moorland landscape of the Preseli Mountains (although from here you can still see the sea at the highest points!)

PENALLY ABBEY, THE PERFECT BASE

Penally really is the perfect base to explore and enjoy all the action and beauty that Pembrokeshire can offer.


WHY?

We are situated on the coast overlooking Caldey Island with rooms that look out across the sea

 All of our staff are full of local knowledge from where the best walks are, the best sunset spots and the best dog friendly pubs are. We can even send you in the right direction to the best lobster roll you can get your hands on in Pembrokeshire!

We have recently even designed our own ordnance survey maps for guests. In reception we have an abundance of maps, both our own and others, brochures of endless local attractions and public transport schedules free for guests to use as they wish. 

Our receptionists are on hand each morning with endless Pembrokeshire knowledge and tips.

In every bedroom we have made our very own personalised in-room guide which summarises everything we love about Pembrokeshire for you to read from the comfort of your room. 

…and at the end of your day exploring we have a complimentary, daily changing, homemade cake to welcome you back.
