Beaches near Skomer View

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!
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.
Broad Haven
Druidstone Haven can be found by following the winding coastal road between Nolton Haven and Broad Haven. It is a well hidden, long and sandy beach, enclosed on three sides by spectacular cliffs. Access to the beach is by two fairly steep footpaths. There are no amenities on the beach, but the nearby Druidstone Hotel has a good menu and a lovely outdoor seating area, providing the most glorious views of the beach and as far out to sea as the eye can see.
There is only limited parking on the side of the coastal road, but it is also possible to stop here on the Puffin Shuttle Bus.
Broad Haven
Broad Haven (west) is a large, magnificent area of sand, which runs the entire length of Broad Haven Village and is a regular Blue Flag award winner. It is a favourite with both bathers and water sports enthusiasts and is ideally facilitated with pubs, shops, restaurant, cafe etc. 
Broad Haven's westerly facing sands offer excellent conditions for kite-surfing, kite-buggying, walking and sandcastle building. 
It’s not hard to see why this beach is one of the most popular windsurfing beaches in this area and home to Haven Sports water sports shop. There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North End of the bay. 

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.
Little Haven
Little Haven is a picturesque old fishing village with steep streets that descend to a sandy beach with a slipway for small boats, including the local inshore rescue boat. The beach itself is popular with swimmers, divers and kayaks in the summer months. At low tide you can walk along the beach to Broad Haven, passing Settlands on the way, there are numerous caves and rock pools to explore however Settlands is only accessible at low tide so be careful not to get cut off here.
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.
St Brides Haven is a shingle cove with sand exposed at low tide. It is excellent for swimming, bathing, snorkelling and diving. There are plenty of rock pools to explore making it great fun for families.
Abercastle
Abercastle is a picturesque cove which was once a busy slate port. It’s small ‘beach’ is made up of sand, shingle and seaweed and is popular with walkers and fishermen. It is an inlet still used as a harbour base for a string of local fishermen. 
Swimmers, divers, kayakers and boating enthusiasts are drawn to this area. There is a slipway for boats and kayaks. The beach also faces North West so is naturally sheltered from winds. 
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Trefin. Here, there is a pub and a café that both serve good food.
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.

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. A visit to Carreg Sampson is well worth it even if you are not a history buff, as it enjoys panoramic views across the land and sea.
The birthplace of Saint David, this Chapel was built in 1934 on the site of the original house where Non had lived. The Chapel and its accompanying Holy Well were built in dedication to Saint Non, and have since become popular destinations for pilgrimages. Legend has it that springs appeared at each of the significant milestones of Saint David's life, and many believe this Holy Well appeared during his birth and holds many special healing powers.
A popular destination for pilgrimages, this Cathedral is a huge attraction for those interested in Welsh history and/or religion. St. David's Cathedral as we know it today replaced a monastery which was originally founded on the site by Saint David around 589 AD. Not only is it named after our Patron Saint of Wales, but it also contains a shrine to him. The Cathedral still operates a traditional communion service and also holds various special events such as the annual Cathedral Festival. Please note: Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.
Located next to the Cathedral, this Bishop's Palace was originally built and established as a monastery in the 6th Century by Saint David. Most of the structure for this building remains however the Palace is now without a roof. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Built in the 13th Century, this castle is half fortified manor house and half fully developed medieval castle surrounded by forty acres of land and gardens. The castle and gardens is closed over the winter months for essential maintenance but is open for special occasions. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
