Out & About in Pembrokeshire
The Green Bridge of Wales
The Green Bridge of Wales, is located on M.O.D. land, and access is limited but well worth making the trip for the absolutely stunning views of the cliffs and limestone rock formations. The Green Bridge of Wales, is our favourite view in the whole of Pembrokeshire.
The Beach at Saundersfoot
The Lighthouse at Strumble Head
Strumble Head - is worth a visit to see the automated lighthouse, where you will also, if you are patient, be able to see a variety of seabirds, seals, and porpoises, from the observation point (opened by Bill Oddie in 1988)
The Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy
The blue lagoon is an old slate quarry, just north of the beach in Abereiddy Bay, that was abandoned and flooded in 1910.
Today the Blue Lagoon, which is believed to be 25 metres deep, is well known for hosting the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in 2012, 2013 and again in 2016, when an 88 ft diving board is erected.
Parking is found by the beach at Abereiddy.
Manorbier Castle is situated in a stunning location perched above the beach, and is well worth a visit while staying at Archer's Cottage. Car parking is to the rear of the beach below, and then you walk up the hill to the castle, however if you're disabled, there is limited parking outside the gates, or if you ask at the castle shop, you may be allowed to park on the castle approach. The castle is extremely well preserved, with a chapel, round tower and gatehouse for your to explore. There is also an interesting spur tower with great views over the beach, and historical displays featuring life sized figures, make for an interesting visit.
Porthgain is a small coastal hamlet on the north coast of St Davids Peninsula.
Once a small commercial harbour used for exporting stone from the nearby quarry, Porthgain is now popular with holidaymakers thanks to its pub, a much praised cafe restaurant and the Harbour Lights Gallery,which specialises in Original Welsh art, prints and sculpture
The harbour was also used as a location for the filming of the comedy ‘Their Finest’ starring Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy and Sam Claflin.
