St Davids Peninsula with St Davids the jewel in the crown – the smallest city in Britain set in a sea girt peninsula: stunning evocative landscapes holding secrets of some of the oldest history in Britain: a magnet for pilgrims and tourists for centuries: home of our patron saint, Dewi Sant – his shrine is at the heart of the great cathedral that holds his name.
The peninsula today: a fantastic centre for family holidays, splendid sandy beaches with accommodation to match, and all linked by Pembrokeshire’s award winning National Park coastal footpath: our outdoors is second to none: walking, surfing, canoeing, coasteering, climbing, yachting and fishing – everything is possible in this amazing place.
Around our shores and islands some of the most remarkable wild life to be found anywhere: seals, dolphins and porpoises, the amazing bird life of Ramsey Island managed by the RSPB, and with every year a profusion of spring flowers.
Everything is here for your holiday needs – top accommodation, family owned hotels, first class bed and breakfasts, world class self-catering cottages and superbly situated caravan and camping sites, with a bed booking service situated at Oriel y Parc the National Park’s centre in St Davids, and excellently run local boat companies.
Our streets are alive with excellent shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants – so much to see and do. In March we celebrate our patron saint, gourmets can enjoy our Really Wild country food fair, and in summer concerts and plays fill the evenings, including the world renowned annual St Davids Cathedral Festival.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving will be returning to the Blue Lagoon near Abereiddi again this year on Saturday & Sunday 10th & 11th September 2016 – see More Events above.
