With over 50 beaches to explore, 10 of which have been awarded Blue Flag Status, Pembrokeshire offers everything from calm waters for beginners to strong surf for experienced wave riders.

Westerly winds flowing from the Atlantic make the autumn the perfect time to take to sea and air whilst windsurfing.

The length and breadth of Pembrokeshire’s coastline, with rugged coves, creeks, and caves makes for exciting exploring for those looking to get the wind in their sails and take to the seas.
