Four days in...Saundersfoot: Much more than just a beach break

A perfect base to explore south Pembrokeshire, Saunderfoot has lost of secrets for any eager adventurer to discover.

Perfect for families seeking some adrenalin, or for couples looking to grab a few peaceful days!

Day one

To ease you in to your break, why not get the lay of the land? Saundersfoot is a great base for nearby beaches: Amroth, Wisemans Bridge, Coppet Hall and Tenby. There are bluebell woods to walk through at the Hean Castle Estate, or if you’re arriving later in the year, pop over to Colby Woodland Gardens for walks among established rhododendrons, azaleas and specimen trees. The onsite restaurant is well worth a visit- especially for a cream tea!

Day two

If your plan is to get the blood pumping first thing, then drive tanks, quads, or two-wheeled segways over rough terrain, or get into a paintball match to make your heart race! Just a stones throw from Saundersfoot town is Makin’ Tracks who’ll take care of all your adrenaline needs!

If you want to avoid the bruises why not head out on the coastal path with a picnic and marvel at our stunning coastline? The path is easy to find and follow if you want a short walk. Or if you are up to something slightly more challenging, grab a map before you begin so you can plan your own adventure. Keep an eye out for dolphins and seals!

Day three

Time for some R&R! Try the open-air infinity pool at St. Brides Spa Hotel, which looks out over Saundersfoot bay, and feel as if you are part of the landscape itself. If you need a massage after yesterday’s strenuous activities, there are lots of treatments on offer including Hot and Cold Stone Therapy, and Deep Tissue massage.

Or if you want to add some fun to your water activities, head over to the Blue Lagoon at Bluestone National Park Resort for a splashing good time!

Day Four

Time to make like a local, grab an ice-cream and head to the beach- whatever the weather! The rock pools between Saundersfoot beach itself and neighbouring Coppet Hall are always good to have a sneak peak at, just watch out for the incoming tide and the local fishing boats! (We found a dog fish in one rock pool- can you do any better than that?! Let us know on Twitter!)

In the afternoon why not pop over to Tenby for a wander around the castle walls? Or if you’re a determined shopper, head to stylish Narberth, home of boutique shops, galleries, delicatessens and restaurants.

Phew! Sounds like you’ll need a holiday after!

 Just come back from a week’s break in St Davids - loved the area completely, and the local people are brilliant. Highly recommended is a boat trip to Ramsey Island.
