Visiting in your own yacht or chartering one locally
Sailing in Pembrokeshire
With a combination of rugged spectacular coastline, broad sandy beaches and numerous safe-haven harbours to moor in, there’s plenty of scope.
Most of the yachting facilities in Pembrokeshire are focused on Milford Haven waterway, a 22 mile long natural deep-water harbour, sheltered from all but the very worst weather. Marina facilities are available at Milford Haven and Neyland, where most of a yachtspersons’ needs are catered for from chandleries to charters.
Learning to sail in Pembrokeshire with a RYA instructor gave me the confidence to go it alone and explore this stunning coastline

If you’re looking for something less formal, mooring can be found in most harbours around the county, including Tenby, Saundersfoot, Solva and Porthgain, but be aware that most of the smaller harbours are dry at low tide.
The Haven itself is the perfect environment for a quiet sail in any size of craft from dinghy to cruiser. It’s also a good place to learn the ropes on one of the numerous RYA courses available.
