Beaches of Pembrokeshire.

Porthsele. You must see this special place! Porth Sele is a favourite hidden treasure – a little known gem of a beach accessible from the coast path between St.Justinian’s and Whitesands.

Further south the pastoral farmland is enchanting too, but these hills offer a Welsh hillscape to delight in. On a clear […]
