A time for laughter and creating cherished memories.
A beautiful landscape with a protected coastline makes for an awesome natural playground.
We have beaches galore: small and secluded or wide and open. Ideal for rockpooling, bodyboarding or just plain sandcastle building. Even the teenagers will struggle not to smile with all the water sports on offer.
Boat trips to the islands are a ’must do’ family adventure. Experience a high speed dash across bubbling tidal flows to spot puffins, seals, dolphins and if you’re lucky a whale or sun fish.
Adventure and theme parks are perfect when it’s not a beach day, or highly qualified activity operators can provide tuition in a whole range of sports. There’s so much to keep everyone entertained; you’ll need to go home for a rest.
And at the end of an action packed day, you can retire to a contemporary hotel, a home from home cottage or secluded campsite complete with an open fire knowing you can do it all again tomorrow.
When the kids are full of fun family bike rides are a great way to see the countryside and burn off some excess energy.
Treat the kids to some lessons they will really want to learn – with a trip to one of Pembrokeshire's surf schools.
