Bosherston Lily Ponds need no introduction, for they are far-famed among visitors to the County as an unusual beauty spot to be seen and enjoyed. They were the brainchild of one of Pembrokeshire’s main noble families, The Cawdors.
Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber, near Nevern in North Pembrokeshire, is an iconic prehistoric monument: the finest of the Megalithic tombs in Wales. A massive cromlech, its scale takes the first time viewer by surprise, and it has been used as a symbol by innumerable academic, cultural and even commercial bodies over the years.
On the Coast:
From Westdale Bay right round to Dale Roads and the village of Dale itself, the Dale Peninsula represents the Northen gatepost at the entrance to Milford Haven Waterway.
The Deer Park at Martin’s Haven, near Marloes, which overlooks the point of embarkation for pleasure boats taking visitors out to Skomer Island or round Grassholm, is a favourite grandstand for bird and seal watching.
At the eastern end of the entrance to Fishguard Harbour Dinas Island juts out like a sentinel at the gate. At its northern tip is Dinas Head where the 465-feet high cliffs look north up the wide arc of Cardigan Bay, the Lleyn Peninsula of Anglesey visible on clear days when even the top of Snowdon can be seen.
St Anne’s Head is the northern gateway to Milford Haven Waterway, one of the UK’s major oilports, formerly an important fishing port and a deepwater harbour. Observers on the clifftop at St Anne’s Head today can watch the comings and goings of the supertankers that serve the Haven’s two oil refineries.
St Justinian is a rocky cove tucked under the cliffs at the northern end of Ramsey Sound and it has been the site of St Davids Lifeboat Station for generations.
Strumble Head, near Fishguard Harbour, resembles the quiff on the forehead of the facelike outline of the Pencaer Peninsula, which looks out west over the Irish Sea. It is a familiar landmark for passengers on the twice-daily crossing of the Stena ferry from Fishguard to Rosslare, and the lighthouse on Ynys Meicel.
