Porthclais harbour

Porthclais harbour

A pretty little harbour or cove near St Davids.

This is a popular spot for launching canoes and is regularly used by activity centres.

The beach is shingle so it isn’t a bathing beach, but it is a good place for starting or finishing a walk on the coast path.

Just east of the harbour is the most popular slab for practising rock climbing.

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
