The whole coast is accessible on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a 187 mile route from Amroth in the south, to St Dogmaels in the north which makes it an ideal place for walkers.
With a choice of over 50 beaches, you are bound to find find your favourite - from quiet coves and bays only accessible from the coast path, to 13 Blue Flag beaches with RNLI lifeguards, cafes and toilet facilities.
If you want to do more than just beach-lounging there are a plenty of water-based activities on offer from surfing & kayaking to coasteering and boat trips. The coast, inshore waters and islands are also great places to go wildlife watching so bring your camera!

Two miles from Tilleys is Abereiddy beach with toilet facilities, free parking and a refreshments van selling locally produced food (open Easter to October half term). Right next to Abereiddy is the famous 'blue lagoon' where the Red Bull British Cliff Diving Championships were held last year (and will be again this year!).
