Beat the Blue Monday Blues!

Today is Blue Monday, allegedly the most depressing day of the year. The theory is that it is a Monday in January and so we are all on a downer after the highs of the festive season. Personally, I’m not sure how much belief I’d give to this claim.

Granted it is a Monday in January but on the whole, shouldn’t this be a day of the year we are all happy about? We have the whole year in front of us and who knows what it is going to bring? Fingers crossed for good fortune, good health and good times! My thoughts: forget about this Blue Monday nonsense and embrace the unknown. The year can be what you make of it.

That being said, why not make 2017 one to remember?

Perhaps your New Year’s Resolution was to try something new and a little different this year? I think it’s safe to say our Pleasure Flights and Flying Lessons fit into that category! From £120, we can book you a 30 Minute Pleasure Flight for up to 3 people. If you’re no newcomer to a holiday in Pembrokeshire, this is most certainly a great way to see Pembrokeshire in a new light. From £220, you can book a 1 Hour Flying Lesson – that’s surely something to tick off the bucket list?!

Explore Pembrokeshire’s dark skies with our exclusive Stargazing Experiences. Complete beginners can opt for the Introduction to Stargazing at £250 for 3 Hours, whilst a group of enthusiasts might be better suited to the Deluxe Stargazing Experience at £350 for 4 Hours, as the Deluxe Experience offers a more in-depth exploration of astronomy and the equipment. Both experiences allow you to take your own images of the skies with a camera or phone.


It’s well known that Pembrokeshire has the one of the best coastlines around, so make the most of it this year! Our water-sports sessions are a great way to find the adventurer inside you and learn a new skill, if you’re brave enough that is! Ease yourself into coastal adventures with a morning of Kayaking, be a little more daring with a Surfing session or if you’re a real thrill-seeker, take a leap and go Coasteering! All are available from £62 per adult for a Half-Day session.

So forget about Blue Monday, and focus on the positives ahead…such as a holiday in Pembrokeshire! Fill your 2017 with unforgettable experiences in truly stunning surroundings.
