It’s not too late to spot a seal!

Seal watching in North Pembrokeshire

As Pembrokeshire is known for some of the best coastline in the world, it is also home to some of the best marine life in Wales, including seals and porpoises.  West Wales is home for around 5,000 Atlantic grey seals and their pups and they can be seen from September through to December.

Where to look  for seals when staying at Yr Hafan holiday cottages:
At the foot of the cliffs around Moylegrove, Strumble Head, St Davids and Cemaes head there are secluded beaches where the seals feel safe enough to give birth to their pups. If you walk along the coast path in season, and keep an eye out, you will see bobbing heads, seals beached on pebble banks, sunbathing on rocks or even little white pups heading towards the sea for their first swim closely watched by Mum….

Year of the Sea and Event 17th August 2018

Wales in 2018 is celebrating The Year of The Sea. Visit Pembrokeshire enlisted the help of sand artist Marc Treanor to create this stunning sand art on Caerfai beach near St Davids.

Surrounded on three sides by water and with no part of Pembrokeshire being more than 14 miles from the coast you can see why we have salt water in our veins. The best way to see our coastline is from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, all 186 miles from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, you'll pass seascapes of breathtaking variety, award winning beaches, harbours, inlets and islands.

On Friday the 17th of August, Fishguard and Goodwick will be hosting the 2018 Year of the Sea event. Starting at 10am at the Ocean Lab, Goodwick, the event will include food, films, the arrival from the sea of The Small World Theatre's Cragen Sea Monster and experiencing the unexpected with The Wildlife Trust Living Seas Roadshow.
