Pembrokeshire, the UK’s only coastal National Park, is a beautiful, secluded surfers’ fun-ground with a variety of surfing spots. And what’s not to love? The diversity of Pembrokeshire’s coastline environment, from the open expanses of Newgale and Whitsands beaches, the popular breaks at Poppit Sands and Freshwater West, to the hidden, pirate-caved bay of Druidstone Haven, this fabulous county provides surfers of all inclinations and all abilities with the swell that they seek year-round. Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and kite surfing are increasingly popular and with surf schools situated across Pembrokeshire, the opportunities for surfing holidays in Pembrokeshire for both beginners and experts are endless.
With the county’s West facing beaches, the swell is reliable and, when the waves get too big on the larger more open beaches, idyllic hidden coves provide sheltered surfing. Kitesurfing in Pembrokeshire is taking off (,i>sorry!) too. And for campers and caravanners, Pembrokeshire proves to be an addictive dream. Be warned: camp and surf in Pembrokeshire once and you will be hooked. The protection of the National Park ensures that every vista is unspoilt and the combination of fiery yellow gorse, purple heather, cerulean blue skies and near white sand blows the mind – especially when viewed from 30 metres off the coast.
The campsites in Pembrokeshire are as varied as the surfing; large, well serviced sites, within a few metres of the pub and with excellent facilities abound. But if you are seduced more by the near-wild camping offered by some of the smaller campsites, enabling you to unzip your tent or open the door of your camper in the morning onto gloriously un-peopled views, then we have those listed here too.
