The original and the best. Adrenalin packed action for all ages and abilities in Pembrokeshire St Davids, Wales.
Learn about the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline at the same time as having fun and testing your skill and endurance in Wales’ only coastal national park.
Whilst we wouldn’t be immodest enough to claim that we ‘invented’ the whole notion of exploring along rocky foreshores – kids have been doing that since seaside holidays first began – TYF Adventure is proud to have taken the whole notion one step further with the development of our flagship adventure activity coasteering.
It couldn’t be more simple – squeeze into a wetsuit, safety helmet and old trainers then scramble, climb, swim and cliff jump your way around Pembrokeshire’s spectacular rocky coastline, turning rocks, cliffs, caves and waves into playthings! Jumping is not compulsory but most people like to try it.
On a calm day it is possible to explore caves, when it gets rougher hold onto your hats – it can be a rollercoaster ride!
Do something a little different. And get the adrenalin flowing on an adventure day out. Kayaking, surfing, climbing, coasteering. Take a step into the unknown with the experienced guides at TYF. But best of all do it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire coast.
Tranquil peaceful harbour save for the sound of sea and birds. But it belies its reputation. The waters of St Davids and Ramsey Island are home to the vicious Bishops and Clerks rocks and reefs. Combined with exceptional tides, the area has caused many a ship to founder. Visit the St Davids lifeboat station and find out about the history of the lifeboat and the 450 lives that it has saved. We recommend a donation to the RNLI too.
Chill out on the beach of this amazing bay. Take in the awesome views and check out the caves and rock pools and all the impressive colours of the cliffs.
Caerfai is the nearest beach to St Davids. It is very popular for one main reason – it’s a suntrap! (South facing and surrounded by high cliffs)
You can also just sit and enjoy the fabulous panoramic views right across St Brides bay and the islands of Skomer and Skokholm from the picnic seats and benches at the top of the cliffs adjacent to the car park.
The path and steps to the beach are quite steep (& feel even steeper on the way back!). There are no toilet facilities.
For those coming by car, a word of caution – there is limited parking above the beach and the road from St Davids is also pretty narrow in places.
Caerfai is within easy walking distance of St Davids (1.5 miles). A lovely walk along the coastal path is to St Non’s – a distance of about 2 miles. From St Non’s it is quite an easy route to turn inland and head back to St Davids.
The walk along the cliffs in the other direction from Caerfai takes you to the beach at Caerbwdy and from there onto Solva.
There is also the alternative of waiting for the Puffin Shuttle coastal buses, which regularly visit the accessible coves and beaches around the St Davids peninsula
From Solva, as you enter St David’s, there is the new National Parks Visitor Centre – Oriel y Parc on your left. Turn down by it to Caerfai (1.5 miles).
The most important religious monument in Wales. Founded by St David as a monastic settlement in the sixth century. The 1181 cathedral is the fourth church on the site. Stroll through the beautiful grounds and the ruins of the Bishop’s Palace.
Since the 6th century there has been a church on this site. For the past 1500 years prayer and worship has been offered to God on a daily basis which continues to this day. St David taught his followers to ‘be joyful, to keep the faith and to do the little things’. In this Cathedral we strive to keep the faith which Christ and his apostles taught, to be joyful in our expression of the gospel message to the hundreds of thousands of visitors and pilgrims who come to this Cathedral every year and I hope that this website will show you some of the little things we do day by day to honour God and St David who founded this Cathedral.
A beautiful whitewashed mill, to be found in a remote forested valley. Working since the 17th century. Beautiful blankets, throws and cushions made the traditional way. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy one. They are ideal to cwtch under on a winter’s day.
An unmissable way to spend a day. Go to the Thousand Islands Expeditions booking office on the Cross Square in the centre of St Davids. Book the trip. Depart from St Justinians Lifeboat Station on a wildlife adventure boat trip. Sail over Ramsey’s swirling currents, weave in and out of the bays and enjoy the unspoilt natural beauty of the coastline. Say hello to the seals, dolphins, puffins and sea birds for us. It’s truly amazing.
A beautiful walk to a mystical place. The birthplace of St David. See the healing well that erupted from the sea when he was born. Take in the ruins of the chapel built in honour of St Non, his mother.
A charming inlet. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied with small fishing boats. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Aberreiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Simply exhilarating.
Legendary for its surf and just five minutes outside the city. Stroll along the rugged cliffs of St Davids Head. There you’ll find the burial chamber and fortifications on the Carn Llidi outcrop. You’ll also find yourself on the oldest part of the British Isles. The rocks here are 6 million years old.
