KNOWN across the world for its awesome coastal scenery, protected by Britain’s only coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire is the perfect holiday destination; golden sands backed by towering cliffs teeming with wildlife and covered in a riot of flowers, especially in spring.

And one of the towns best placed for enjoying everything Pembrokeshire has to offer is Tenby.

The Pembrokeshire coast path runs the length of the county and affords views to take your breath away. Crystal clear waters make it perfect for adventure activities like coasteering and kayaking, for spotting dolphins, or seeing seals hauled up in secret coves.

Families have no end of choice: adventure parks, castles and boat trips, are just some of the attractions and events that will create lasting memories.

And at the end of the day, head out to a pub or restaurant to sample the finest Pembrokeshire food and drink and recount the day’s events.

When your eyes can no longer stay open, it’s the fresh sea air that does it, you can retire to your accommodation of choice: a seaside hotel, cosy country cottage or something more unusual, knowing that in the morning you can do it all over again.

You don’t have to limit your visit to the summer, there is plenty to do in the county all year round.

As the days begin to lengthen, now is the perfect time to walk the coast path and watch Pembrokeshire burst into life.

The bare and quiet hedgerows of winter suddenly echo to the tune of song as the local bird life find their voices.

The flowers jostle to get the first rays of the warm spring sunshine and then burst to reveal a riot of colour. It’s a dazzling sight.

Migrating birds return home from their epic journeys to the Pembrokeshire islands. A boat trip is a great vantage point to appreciate the numbers of birds, the noise and smells.

With the Easter break just around the corner, the time is right to start thinking about taking a trip to the end of the M4 and beyond and discover the delights which await you in West Wales.
