Surrounded by sea on three sides, Pembrokeshire is a haven for exhilarating water sports, spectacular coastal walks and the freshest seafood all set in a wild and incredibly beautiful landscape.
The landscape is protected by the unique Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, where along its shores you’ll find the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The 186 miles of meandering trail visits coves and harbours, over 50 beaches, through vibrant towns and villages, and the smallest city in Britain: St Davids.
Away from the coast, Pembrokeshire is fantastic for family holidays – there’s no end of choice; adventure parks, castles, boat trips and family festivals, they are just some of the attractions and events that will create lasting memories.
Ocean Square, in the heart of the village, is a covered events Square surrounded by a selection of retail and food shops, Ocean Cabins short-stay accommodation, and a new Welcome & Heritage Centre, which will soon offer visitor information, and a heritage centre digging deep into Saundersfoot’s coal mining heritage. The National Events Deck, home to the athlete’s tent for the duration of the event, is a large events space with a Crabbing Centre, and life-size, three-masted Coastal Schooner, which will soon include a maritime heritage centre, delving into Welsh coastal trade, migration, exploration, piracy and smuggling; small coffeeshop; high ropes course up the rigging, and outdoor cinema from the masts. The Marine Centre of Excellence at the end of the harbour features a water sports centre, chandlery, café, further Ocean Cabins short-stay accommodation, meeting rooms, the Harbour Office, and soon the Storm Centre, which will explore Saundersfoot’s environment from geology and coastal erosion and flooding, to tides, weather and climate change.
The Wales International Coastal Centre on Saundersfoot Harbour is a £10 million development funded by EU Funding Bodies, Welsh Government and Coastal Communities Fund. Plan your visit at www.saundersfootharbour.co.uk
