Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, as its name suggests, is a mainly coastal park on the South-West coast of Wales. Characterised by rugged cliffs, pristine sandy beaches and secluded estuaries, the park comprises four main areas, the Preseli Hills in the north, St Bride's Bay coast in the west and the Daugleddau estuary and southern coast, including Caldey Island.

Established in 1952, it is the only national park in the United Kingdom to have been designated primarily because of its spectacular coastline. The park covers an area of 243 square miles and includes the majority of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a 187 km long designated National Trail that starts at St Dogmaels in the north and ends in Amroth in the south.

In addition to its coastal and countryside aspects, the Park has thriving towns and villages. These include the county town of Haverfordwest and the port town of Milford Haven. Within the Park are many islands, including Skomer, Skokholm and Ramsey. In the north of the park are the Preseli Hills, the mountains from which stone was transported over the sea to create Stonehenge.

Rich in geology and history, Pembrokeshire is home to 11 Blue flag beaches and the 186-mile-long Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It is also home to the city of St Davids, the smallest in the United Kingdom, with a population of around 1,600.

The park has many different natural habitats, from beaches to woodland to heathland. The park is home to some of the best coastline in Wales, such as Barafundle Bay, Broad Haven, and the rugged Preseli Hills in the North. There are also plenty of trails to explore, making it the perfect place for a leisurely hike or bike ride.

St. Davids Cathedral is a fine example of a Medieval cathedral and one of Wales's most photographed churches. The cathedral is steeped in history and has some fascinating stories to tell.

The picturesque Tenby Lifeboat Station is also worth a visit. The station was founded in 1852, which makes it one of the oldest in the UK. Now a private residence, the old station lives next door to i's more modern counterpart, which has two lifeboats on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the most popular walking routes in the country. The trail covers 186 miles and is split into six sections. The route offers the opportunity to enjoy the best of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: sandy beaches, cliff-top paths, pretty seaside towns and bustling harbours.
