The Best things to do this Summer in Pembrokeshire
1. Get to a Pembrokeshire Beach this Summer
While in Pembrokeshire, a visit to the beach is a must. There are so many Pembrokeshire Beaches to choose from (I’ll need to dedicate a whole post to them) and there are beaches suitable for everyone. We love visiting new-to-us beaches in Pembrokeshire and we also have our old favourites that we like to visit again and again. Our favourite’s include Broad Haven (North), Barafundle Bay and Cwm yr Eglwys.
Pembrokeshire is proud to have many easy access beaches. A number of beaches have mobility equipment, including beach wheel chairs to hire. Windswept Watersports have also had a hoist installed on their pontoon on Dale Beach.
(there are too many beaches to mention here, message me if you want to know more about a specific Pembrokeshire beach)

2. Manor Wildlife Park
