10 most Instagrammable places in Pembrokeshire
Most of Pembrokeshire’s coastline is protected with National Park status which means our sea and landscape has been preserved leaving it just how nature intended: unspoilt.
Pembrokeshire truly is a dream destination for photographers.
Scroll down to see our list of the 10 most instagrammable places in Pembrokeshire and start exploring and snapping.
View from Carn Llidi
The short walk to the top of Carn Llidi on the St Davids peninsula is so worth it when you get this photogenic view to Whitesands beach below and Ramsey Island in the distance. No wonder it’s popular with photographers.
Getting to Stack Rocks is a bit of adventure – access is through Castlemartin MOD tank range, so check the firing times before you try and visit. The two limestone pillars were once part of an arch, similar to The Green Bridge, which has now collapsed. In spring and summer they are covered in masses of chattering seabirds.
As epic seascapes go Pwll Deri is hard to beat. The view carry’s the eye along the ins and outs of the coastline right down to the St Davids headland summit of Carn Llidi. If you’re staying at Pwll Deri Youth Hostel, it’s a perfect spot to watch the sun go down too.
Perched right on the cliff top overlooking St Brides Bay, the view from The Druidstone hotel never fails. How can you possibly concentrate on your lunch or coffee when you have a picture perfect view to gaze at! And then in the evening if conditions are right, head outside with a drink and be floored by Mother Nature’s finest work.

Newport from Bedd Morris
Take the windy single track road over the boneshaking cattle grid into the hills behind Newport, watching out for the ponies roaming the common. Park up just before the summit, then turn around and the whole of Newport bay unfolds below you. Breathtaking.
The approach to Newgale beach from the Coast Path at Penycwm is quite something. Time it so that you arrive when the tide is out and you are rewarded with a BIG view: at almost two miles long this stretch of golden sand is a haven for water sports lovers with surfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding and kayaking popular choices. Lots of Instagram potential.
St Govan’s Chapel
Hidden in the cliff face this tiny chapel, dedicated to St Govan, is only visible if you peer over the edge of the cliff. As you take the steps down make sure you count them as it is said that the number of steps is never the same going down as going back up!
Spring on Skomer Island
Skomer Island is known the world over for its cheeky puffins that wander past you without a care in the world but if you venture to the island in spring you are transported to a world of blue and pink as the island is covered, and I mean covered, in Bluebells and Sea champion. It’s a sight to behold.

Strumble Head lighthouse
Strumble Head lighthouse built in 1908 stands imposingly on Ynysmeicl (St. Michael's Island), an islet to the west of Fishguard, separated from the mainland by a very narrow gap through which the sea boils and froths in stormy weather. This headland is a great place for wildlife spotting too.
Broad Haven South
This wide sandy beach is backed by dunes and is your prize if you’ve strolled the one and half miles through Bosherston lily ponds. The instantly recognisable towering spire of Church Rock dominates the beach and is a popular shot with instagrammers.
This list could have gone on and on, there are so many other locations in Pembrokeshire; we haven’t even started on Tenby harbour or St Davids Cathedral!
