Pembrokeshire, a Welsh county, offers you a stunning coastline, without the crowds and cost of most other sea resorts. This makes it an ideal spot for family holidays. The region has almost 200 miles of coastline, that are under the care of a national park and bordered by a path that runs through almost the entire coast. With surf-kissed beaches, weathered cliffs as well as nature reserves, the county has it all.
The coast of Pembrokeshire is comprised of three specific parts. The busiest area is to the south of the county centred in Tenby. With magnificent beaches, quaint homes painted in pastel hues crowding all around the harbour, and a town surrounded by medieval walls, this is by far the most charming seaside resort in Britain.
The region holds forth many attractions for the family. There are stunning rural beaches west of the town, especially in Manorbier to be enjoyed, with the historic backdrop of a Norman castle in ruins, and a Stackpole Estate maintained by the National Trust. All of course, if the weather does not turn rough.
North Pembrokeshire remains the least discovered, and most serene and where cliffs outnumber beaches. The town of Fishguard remains almost the same without much change which will appeal to those who seek solitude. Then there is the fast developing Newport that boasts of many good cafes and restaurants, with a cultured and individualistic feel about it. The big, surf-pounding beach name Newport Sands is amazing. Moving up the coast, there lies Poppit Sands which is a huge dune packed beach situated close to Cardigan’s estuary.
To conclude, Pembrokeshire has a dearth of gastro pubs and luxury hotels. The area is also much less crowded, receiving about 25 percent less visitors than the more famous resort towns. To many, this in itself is the major attraction of the area, particularly to those who want to get away from it all.
