Reasons to visit South-West Wales

Known for its legendary coastal scenery, protected by Britain’s only coastal National Park, the south-west corner of Wales is the perfect holiday destination: golden sands backed by towering cliffs teeming with wildlife that are equally as beautiful in both summer and winter.

The world-renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a 186 mile route that takes in the seaside villages and wildly rugged landscape that characterises the area. Watch the sea birds, or keep an eye out on the water for porpoises or pods of dolphins. The islands at the far tip of Pembrokeshire are amazing, and it is possible to visit some on day-trip boats.

The area is home to the smallest city in Britain: St Davids. In reality it's a small town, but it has a cathedral so it's a "city". And a lovely one too, well worth a visit.

Families have no end of choice; adventure parks, castles, boat trips and family festivals. The little town of Tenby offers bucket-and-spade holidays, but also much more besides.
