Voted second in National Geographic Traveller magazine’s poll of the world’s best coastal destinations, award winning is an understatement. 52 glorious beaches in Pembrokeshire, from wide expanses of golden sands at Saundersfoot, Tenby and Newgale to cwtchy (cuddly) coves like Cwm yr Eglwys in the North of Pembrokeshire.
Boasting 12 Blue Flag and 13 Green Coast beaches, together with 11 seaside and 21 rural seaside awards, the area is truly EPIC!
Take a stroll, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, rockpool to your hearts content, run with the dog, surf til your drop with sheer exhaustion, whatever takes your fancy our beaches will tick some of your bucket list! Lonely Planet wrote that the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the greatest long distance trails, so get those walking boots on, fill the flask and venture out!
There’s 186 glorious miles to discover! Some stretches are for the more experienced walkers, but lots of the coast path is accessible for all - give it a go! If you’re feeling inspired, Wales is now connected by coast path along the whole of its coast. There’s fabulous walks along inland paths and wooded areas such as Canaston Woods, not to mention a plethora of cycle paths to enjoy if pedal power is your thing.
Legends, heritage and folklore also abound, with historic castles such as Carew and Pembroket he birthplace of Henry Tudor, Pembrokeshire own Stonehenge - Pentre Ifan and World renowned St Davids Cathedral and Bishops Palace. Historic Tenby with its colourful Georgian facades, two sandy beaches, a stunning harbour and trips to monastic Caldey Island is often featured on television, and is equally spectacular in real life. Don’t forget the National Trust’s 15th century Tudor Merchant House which really brings to life living conditions during those times.
We have wonderful islands in Pembrokeshire including Grassholm, Skomer, Skokholm and Ramsey, which are breeding grounds for Puffins, Guillemots and Choughs. A day trip to Skomer is highly recommended especially in May when wildflowers are in abundance and you can spot Puffins galore.
For family fun Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo is simply magical, and consistently awarded “Wales Best Day Out” - it’s not to be missed. Our Parks are also close to Heatherton World of Adventure, Oakwood Theme Park and Anna’s Welsh Zoo. You’re spoilt for choice.
We could go on and on, but we’ve given some useful websites so you can explore Pembrokeshire further from the comfort of your own home.
Had a fab time at Celtic Holiday Parks recently, and especially enjoyed a wonderful meal in Charlies at Croft. The swimming pool and facilities were first class
Nice friendly environment at noble park and the staff are brilliant! We will definitely be staying here next year!

Excellent park. I was lucky enough to meet the owners, what lovely people!
Noble court suited us a little better due to the larger play park and evening entertainment. The swimming pool at the Croft was brilliant. Highly recommended both
Nice site, lovely location, very close to Folly Farm, convenient 15 minute drive to Oakwood and Bluestone, clean facilities (we seen the cleaners in every day), great little swimming pool, relaxed attitude, professional and very polite staff.
The staff were friendly professional and informative the site was clean and all facilities as described I'm going to visit the other 2 sites before deciding but it will definitely be Celtic for me next year
