Jutting out into the Atlantic as though to guard the entrance to Wales, the 260-mile long Pembrokeshire coast is among the most beautiful in Europe. It was deservedly given National Park status in 1952, and today is visited by an estimated five million people a year. There are over fifty beaches, several islands – of which Skomer has the largest grey seal colony in Southern Britain and one of only two Marine Nature Reserves in the country – and, in St David’s, the smallest city in Britain. Several tiny fishing villages hug the coastline, but at Milford Haven, one of the most outstanding deep-water harbours in the world, colossal supertankers are regular visitors bringing oil to the refinery at Rhoscrowther. Tenby, meanwhile, still retains the character of a handsome Georgian sea-side resort.

Many visitors come today to enjoy the fantastic opportunities the Pembrokeshire coast offers for climbing and watersports. St David’s is a significant centre for adventure sports, particularly surfing and climbing, whilst the cliffs around the southern coast are some of the most popular sea-cliff climbing locations in Britain. But others come just for the walking and the views, and the spiritual refreshment that this area can bring. It offers vistas of staggering variety, from peaceful estuaries to wave-tossed shores, wild moorland to oak-fringed rivers, sandy beaches to astonishing cliffs, all of them shown in a fascinating perspective in this aerial tour around the coast.
