A view from Broad Haven South ,Pembrokeshire.
This was our first visit to Pembrokeshire .Why didn’t we go sooner?
We looked at the weather forecast,it wasn’t great but if you want to sit on a sunbed go to Spain. We arrived at the Beggars Reach in Burton at 4pm a journey of around 5 hours with a break. Traffic? Not much .Rain ? Lots.A little rest then hit the restaurant and bar ,good start.
Day one ,we were given a few places to visit by our hosts at breakfast ,they know because they live and work in the area. William the owner and Susan ,who made everything run smoothly at breakfast were brilliant.They always had time for all their guests. William suggested Narbeth ,Pembroke ,Saundersfoot and Tenby.We managed to sneak in Manorbier as well,on our first day. We passed through Narbeth and headed towards Tenby ,it takes a while to get used to sign posts in Welsh and English,you have to read quickly.
We came across Saundersfoot easy to park ,reasonably priced and on the sea front .Images of Saundersfoot can be seen below. A beautiful place with sandy beaches and great rock pools.
Once in Saundersfoot you can walk east along the beach ,through the tunnels of rock along the front, we stopped at the pub after a two mile walk had a coke and walked back ,a £3 parking fee will cover the journey. On to Tenby.
Give it a miss if you want to avoid crowds but probably worth a visit out of season .
Moved on to Freshwater West an amazing place with great views and history .On the 23rd of April 1943 over 70 marines and sailors lost their lives by drowning or being smashed on the rocks .
And then the sun came out…great images of the Welsh coast.
