The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park covers some 240 square miles of superb countryside in southwest Wales. The seaward side of the park is bounded by 186 miles of coastal path, and as well as walking a wealth of other leisure pursuits are available. The area is renowned for its surfing beaches and secluded coves, a number of which hold European Blue Flag or Green Coast awards.
The city of St Davids is built around the Cathedral which dates from the 6th Century. As well as a place of worship, the Cathedral is an important artistic venue hosting the annual St Davids Cathedral Festival and various other events. Although St Davids is famous for being the smallest city in Britain it offers excellent shopping facilities including a supermarket, a delicatessen, banks, a petrol station and various art and craft outlets. A full range of pubs, high-quality restaurants and more modest cafés and bistros are available, in addition to a gymnasium and nine hole golf course for the more energetic visitor.
