To do

Once you arrive at Point Farm there is so much to enjoy, much of it accessible on foot without the need for a car.  Dale peninsular has an abundance of wildlife including migratory seabirds, seals and dolphins. The cliffs provide stunning views and the chance to see a wide variety of beautiful and rare wild flowers. Located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and part of the 186 mile long costal path, Dale is a magnet for walkers and those wishing to explore the offshore islands of Skomer and Skolkholm for their flora and fauna.  The local beaches are spectacular and often deserted - including Watwick, Musslewick and Marloes Sands.  West Dale can provide great surf and Dale Bay attracts windsurfers and dinghy sailors, and on calmer days the bay is perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking.  Both shore and boat fishing can be done locally and the waters around Dale host a number of wrecks and reefs, perfect for diving. 

Beyond the Dale peninsular, Pembrokeshire offers no end of choice with over 50 beaches along the coast, fishing ports and marinas, quaint villages, art galleries and craft centres, expansive hills and open moorland, historic castles, adventure parks, annual festivals and events, and the smallest city in Britain - St Davids.

 

A holiday in Pembrokeshire will undoubtedly create lasting memories - a fantastic destination that boasts ‘the second best coastline’ in the world as voted for by National Geographic experts, picture-perfect-postcard views and tons of family-friendly attractions too.

Attractions and adventure parks

Arts, crafts and museums

From walking safaris at Manor Wildlife Park to feeding the only giraffes in Wales at Folly Farm; from adrenaline-fuelled experiences at Oakwood Theme Park to breathtaking rides at the Blue Lagoon Water Park, Pembrokeshire offers a range of attractions to keep the family busy.  Our favourite is the Bug Farm near St Davids with a Tropical Bug Zoo, Bug Museum and Bug House, plus the option of tasting some in the edible insect kitchen! Hangar 5 trampoline park is great for the wet and windy days when a day on the beach just isn't an option!

You will find galleries, potteries and workshops in every corner of Pembrokeshire. Pembroke, Tenby, Solva, Narberth, Newport, Fishguard, Porthgain - just some of the arty towns and villages which showcase the local talent of soap makers, photographers, potters, painters, carpenters and more.  Oriel y Parc in St Davids features exhibitions by Pembrokeshire artists.   Melin Tregwynt is world famous for its Welsh woollen blankets. Dale has a number of resident artists including Sean and Wendy Kehoe and Be-Gemmed Jewellers.

If you don't fancy cooking then Dale caters for all budgets with The Griffin, Coco's Brasserie @ Dale Yacht Club and The Boathouse Café, all offering a range of food and drink and a warm welcome!  Seasonal opening times vary so best check directly with them.

Eating out

The Griffin is an award winning pub and restaurant.  With roaring log fires in the winter and alfresco dining on their roof terrace in the summer, there is quite simply no better place to enjoy a good pint and locally caught seafood.  The deliberately informal unpretentious atmosphere and fabulous friendly service only add to the atmosphere, offering a memorable eating experience.
