The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in Southwest Wales, the UK's only totally coastal national park, protects 240 square miles, including a remarkable 260 linear miles, of coast. Beaches, dramatic cliffs, caves and stone stacks as well as several offshore islands form stunning backdrops for rare native shore birds, marine and coastal mammals as well as visiting Atlantic wildlife of all sorts.
Choughs, skylarks and stonechat populate the park's coastal heathland and birds hunt in wildflower rich hedgerows. Atlantic grey seals give birth along this coast; dolphins and porpoises visit regularly. Visiting see mammals you may see if you're lucky include orcas and blue whales.
This coast's Atlantic facing beaches are considered to be among the UK's cleanest and most beautiful. Their marked by wide, golden sands, fabulous dunes and rock formations. Though the water is cold, these beaches are safe for swimming and some - though not all - have life guard coverage.
Canoeing, kayaking, sailing, caving, coasteering, cycling, diving, riding, kite sports, rowing, surfing, swimming and windsurfing are all widely available along this coast. On the other hand, if you'd just like to sit on a clifftop and watch the sea, or spot cliff dwelling puffins in binoculars, there's plenty of opportunity for that as well. Fishing and beach barbecues are permitted as well.
