The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire is home to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of Britain’s most breathtaking spaces, known for its stunning beaches and glorious coastline. It’s the only National Park that is almost all coastal. This underlines the special nature of the Pembrokeshire coast and how it differs to areas such as Cornwall and Devon that don’t have National Parks to protect them.
Solva lies within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with Llys Aber situated minutes from access to the Pembrokeshire Coast path which is one of Britain's National trails. What makes this coast path so interesting is the variety of landscapes you pass through on your way along it, ranging from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, volcanic headlands and flooded galcial valleys.
The year round Coastal bus services are especially designed for walkers so you can travel a few miles down the coast and walk back at your own pace. There are also plenty of circular walks which you can find on the Pembrokeshire National Coast Park website.
At high tide Solva beach is just a small strip right at the head of the harbour, jumping off the harbour wall provides hours of fun. At low tide however, the harbour is completely dry. This provides lots of entertainment catching fish, shrimp and crabs. At the mouth of the harbour a large stretch of sand is revealed with plenty of rock pools and caves to explore. The shallow still water makes swimming here ideal for small children. If you walk over the hill running parallel to Solva, you will find a narrow valley which ends up at an idyllic small pebble beach.
Newgale beach is just 5 minutes drive down the road from Solva, or a good 3 hours walk if you wish to take the coastal path! Enormous is the only way to describle this 2 mile beach, backed by a huge pebble bank formed after a big storm in 1859. Kitesurfing and surfing are popular on this beach and lessons are available.
Whitesands beach is a wide expanse of fine white sand and has been described as the best surfing beach in Pembrokeshire and one of the best tourist beaches in the world!
Take to the waves on an exhilarating jet boat ride to the RSPB reserve of Ramsay Island. Here you'll see a wealth of birdlife and marine mammals. Experience high speed sprints across open water which is sure to get your heart racing!
