Why visit Pembrokeshire

Blue Flag beaches

Britain’s only coastal national park? Check. More clean-beach awards than any other UK county? Check. Swathes of towering cliffs with spectacular sea views? Check! It’s no wonder travellers can’t keep away from the coast when camping in Pembrokeshire. There are 50 beaches to bounce between in this sea-skimming county, but pristine Barafundle Bay and Whitesands are among the best.

The coastal path

If it’s not sunbathing weather, soak up the scenery from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There’s 186 miles of it to amble along altogether, and one of the most scenic stretches is near the Stack Rocks carpark. Get a glimpse of the Green Bridge, a natural arch, and watch seabirds – from guillemots to razorbills – soar around the limestone pillars poking out of the water. After a hard day/hour of hiking, you can jump on the coastal bus service home to your Pembrokeshire campsite.

Thrill-seeking activities

Coasteering was invented in this Welsh county, so it’s well worth trying the extreme sport when camping in Pembrokeshire. On an organised tour, you’ll make your way from one point to another, clambering across rocks, caves and shorelines as you go. Top off heart-racing pursuits by diving into the turquoise-coloured Blue Lagoon, a flooded slate quarry with the same name as a local waterpark, before returning to your pitch or camping pod in Pembrokeshire for a hard-earned nap.

Kid-friendly attractions

Whisking the kids off to Wales? There are ample attractions for younger travellers when camping in Pembrokeshire, including Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo. Find the family’s fave exotic critter at the zoo – more than 750 creatures live here – or have close encounters with barnyard animals. Thrill-seeking children can get stuck into the go-karts, high ropes trails, escape rooms and playzone at Heatherton World of Adventures.

Unexplored Pembrokeshire

The Preseli Hills

With the coast so high in demand, your best bet for finding peaceful Pembrokeshire campsites is to turn inland to the Preseli Hills. On clear days, you can peer all the way across the water to the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. The stones of Stonehenge are said to derive from here – but how people managed to transport them 180 miles away to Wiltshire in England, no one really knows. Immerse yourself in history by hunting for all the Neolithic burial chambers, Iron Age hill forts and stone circles scattered around. 

Poet’s corner

One of Wales’ most well-known poets, Dylan Thomas, lived in Laugharne – a lovely market town on the Taf Estuary – till he died in 1953. Peer through the glass window of his teeny-tiny writing shed and visit the house he resided in; it’s now a museum with a tasty tearoom and eye-popping views over the water. The medieval Laugharne Castle is also worth a look. 

First-rate castles

Speaking of castles, there are several to chuck on the list when camping in Pembrokeshire. Carew Castle has the only remaining Tidal Mill and Causeway left in the country, while the sea-facing Manorbier Castle was once described by renaissance man Giraldus Cambrensis as "the pleasantest spot in Wales". Pop to Pembroke Castle as well to see the nation’s biggest map and the largest painting in the whole of the UK.
