About us

In 1971 a group of hotel and guest house owners came together along with some self-catering accommodation providers to take on and develop the marketing of the St Davids peninsula from the St Davids City Council. With the aim to promote tourism and holidays to Visitors, the St Davids Peninsula Tourist Association came into existence.

Since these early days, a yearly brochure known as the ‘Broad Sheet’ continues to be produced with useful information for the visitor. In 2004 the step was taken to develop a web site to complement the Broad Sheet.

In 2018 development has finally got underway to create an interactive social media mobile phone App which will be going live towards the end of the year. This has been made possible through grant funding by the The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe Investing in Rural Areas.
