Beaches near Rhoson Farmhouse

St Davids
A small cove popular with divers and kayakers with lots of climbing routes on the surrounding cliffs. Again, as with all the beaches in this area also a popular place from which to explore parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There is a car park with an ice-cream van in the summer but very few other amenities. To find Porthclais follow the small road leading SW from The Cross Square in St. Davids.
Whitesands
Whitesands is one of the best beaches in the world – and that's official. Its not only the top beach destination in Wales, but ranks in the top 20 worldwide, beating the likes of Bora Bora and Natadola in Fiji. With its mile-long expanse of sand, the bay curves round to the rocky point of St Davids Head. Whitesands has been rated one of Britain's premier places in the Good Beach Guide and annually receives a Blue Flag award for water quality. Ideal for families it is also renowned for its surfing and watersports, being a firm favourite with both beginners and professional surfers. For 6 months, in and around the summer season, Lifeguards man the beach. The excellent beach-side shop and cafe provide a range of refreshments. Other facilities include parking, toilets, surfboards and windbreak hire, plus a bus service that travels back and fore to St Davids every half hour in summer months.
The dramatic and towering volcanic outcrop of Carn Llidi rises behind the beach, and is well worth the climb. It offers truly stunning views over the beach and bay, the sunsets are magnificent. Alternatively, follow the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path through the Iron Age fields and on to the Peninsula Settlement at St Davids Head. Dog restrictions apply to the entire beach between 1st May and 30th September.
Whitesands
Porthmelgan is a sandy and secluded beach to the north of Whitesands, accessed only via the Coastal Path. Park at Whitesands and follow the path round to the right of Whitesands Beach, underneath Carn Llidi.
St Davids
Caerfai is the nearest beach to St Davids and is popular for bathers, although at high tide the beach is completely covered leaving only rocks and boulders. A feature of the beach is the unusual purple sandstone along the cliffs, which was used to build St Davids Cathedral. The beach itself is pleasant and can very occasionally have some small surf. Its enclosed nature makes it unsuitable for kiting or windsurfing though. It is however an excellent place for coasteering with plenty of caves and rocky outcrops to explore. The cliffs around Caerfai also provide some good, popular climbing routes. Limitied parking is available at the top of the path to the beach or within the large caravan park. To find Caerfai beach follow the signs from the National Park Visitor Centre in St. Davids.
Solva is a beautiful rocky inlet which floods, except at low tide, providing a sheltered, safe anchorage for yachts and pleasure craft. Not surprisingly this fine natural harbour has given the village a long seafaring tradition. At low tide there is a small stretch of sand, but the picturesque little harbour provides a pleasant afternoon for watching the small boats coming and going. A busy little village in the summer, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops. Solva is just east of St Davids on the A487 Haverfordwest Road. Parking is on the harbour front.
Abereiddy
After parking at Abereiddy, take the short walk around the cliff, passing the ruined quarry buildings and slate workers cottages and you will discover the stunning Blue Lagoon! You’ll be blown away by the Mediterranean-like turquoise water, which is a favourite for kayakers and coasteering groups.

Abereiddy
Abereiddy beach is in a rural setting and covered in a unique mix of sand and pebbles that are bluey –grey in colour, due to the mixture of slate and stone. This gives the water a beautifully blue colour. Encased by dramatic cliffs and pretty colour-washed cottages, Abereiddy beach is ideal for surfers, kayakers and walkers. 
Children will love the pastime of local children through the ages- the search for Didymographus fossils which can be found in the slate pebbles along the beach.

Whilst you are here, don’t miss out on Pembrokeshire’s best hidden gem- The Blue Lagoon! Head North of the beach along the headland and discover this magical place for yourself. The former quarry is breath-taking, with it’s sparkling and very deep turquoise water. This is a popular spot for coasteering groups.
In summer months, enjoy an ice-cream and a cold drink from the van in the car park.
Porthgain
An impressive sandy beach surrounded by equally impressive cliffs and headlands. When rough, there can be some pretty nasty rips at this beach making it unsuitable for swimming. Part of the beach can get cut off at high tide too, so watch out. To find it drive to either Porthgain and take the Coastal Path to the beach, or alternatively you can park at Abereiddy and take the 1 km walk along the Coast Path to Traethllyfn. Approx. 124 steep metal steps lead down to beach.
Newgale
Newgale provides the ideal location for watersports. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is an ideal beach for the young and not so expert. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the school holidays. There is a cafe at both ends of the beach, the Duke of Edinburgh Inn is located on the seafront and there are regular visits by the ice cream van in the summer.
The cove of Nolton Haven is a small inlet of pebbles and sand. At low tide it's revealed to be a long and narrow beach, perfectly suited to sunbathers, as it has the added advantage of being sheltered by high cliffs on either side. With the car park behind the beach, Nolton Haven is a good starting point for excellent cliff-top walks along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, finished off with lunch in the Mariners Arms!

Carreg Sampson is a Neolithic Burial Chamber of the dolmen variety. Stood tall are seven upright stones, three of which support a 4.5 metre long capstone. It is the remains of a large tomb which may once have been covered with a mound of earth, however any hint of a covering mound has since disappeared.

Strumble lighthouse, erected in 1908, is actually situated on the small island of Ynsmeicel, reached by a small footbridge on the North West tip of Pembrokeshire, 5 miles west of Fishguard. The circular stone tower is 55ft high and still contains the original lantern. Please Note: The Lighthouse is automated so unfortunately there isn't any access onto the island.
Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.

A military fortress, museum and cafe located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The museum at Chapel Bay Fort is illustrated and explains military technology and weaponry through the ages, with a variety of displays including artillery and associated tools and instruments, WW I, Bomb Disposal and Waterloo amongst others. Volunteers are on hand to answer any question and add to your appreciation of the displays.

Guided tours are conducted by a dedicated team of volunteers and provide access to areas of the fort which are otherwise out of bounds to the public. Tours present further information about Chapel Bay Fort and the defences of Milford Haven and the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke Dock, alongside information about the large exhibits displayed on the terreplein of the fort.

A tour lasts approximately 40 minutes, and is included in the entrance fee to the museum.

Milford Haven
The Museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Milford Haven. The Museum collection reflects all of these aspects of the town's history, but focuses particularly on the maritime history. The Museum is a voluntarily run museum.
