towards Freshwater West

Beaches of Pembrokeshire.

Freshwater West. This wild remote beach can be found along the B4319 and is a surfers paradise – plenty of camper vans here when the surf is up and the sun is out! The Welsh National Surfing Championships are often held here. The huge beach has sand and rocky sections at the southern end, and […]

Pwllgwaelod sunset

Beaches of Pembrokeshire : Pwll Gwaelod.

  The sunset beach. This cove is another delightful find, but for very different reasons than my absolute favourite…yes the one that can only be reached through the rip in the space/time continuum. This lovely place is reached down a long lane, left off the A487 just passed Dinas. Pwll Gwaelod has a pub/restaurant and […]

This was the centre for coal mining in the area and large vessels would beach here for the coal to be loaded from carts […]

ghostly boat in Pembrokeshire

The Magic of Pembrokeshire.

With my partner and dogs we set off on a pleasant but frequent walk along the coastal path. The afternoon began on the path above Aber Mawr and ended at Abercastle –  then we would retrace our steps back to the car in a sheltered lane. It was the summer of 2016 and the weather […]

Newgale pebbles

Beaches of Pembrokeshire – Newgale.

 My favourite beach. On arrival in Pembrokeshire excitement increases as you anticipate that first glimpse of the dramatic coastline at Newgale. Approaching from the south over top the brow of the hill and Newgale’s northern end suddenly comes into view – it’s heartlifting! It’s stunning at any time of the day or season of the […]
