Abereiddi, with it’s main attraction of the Blue Lagoon. Check the link for more information on both beach and lagoon. The car park is free and “Yes” the ice cream van is there. A short walk takes you to the Blue Lagoon and you are not disappointed. While we were there a few people were jumping into the lagoon.

On the way down the coastal path I turned and caught the shot featuring the round building through the mountains,

Well worth the visit, also you can book the new fad of Coasteering. There is a van on the site and will take bookings for a course of climbing on the cliffs.

Moving on around the coast towards Whitesand Beach for our picnic lunch. On our arrival the car park fee is 5GBP which is a little expensive, we would be staying for a short time. So we moved on to another location. There is a cafe and toilet facilitates at the location and the beach looked fabulous.

Looking for another place we traveled through St David’s and onto Port Clais. A lovely place to visit. Be careful of the tides as they move in fast, there is a story to why I have mentioned this, but will not go into to much detail as my better half would not be happy.

Car park costs 2GBP and there is a nice little cafe selling the usual fare. Try the ice cream, just yummy.

Porthclais

Port Clais sign

(also known as Porth Clais) harbour was built in the 12th century and served nearby St. Davids, importing coal and timber. The entire harbour is within the St. David’s Peninsula Site of Special Scientific Interest. Porthclais is still used as a small port by local fishermen and recreational sailors. The old harbour wall, built by the Romans is largely intact. The harbour dries out at low tide and is a good launching spot for small boats, dive craft and kayaks who are setting out to explore St Bride’s Bay.

On the way back to the car, walking the coast pathway.

looking down the gorge at the beauty of the harbour I captured a shot of the boats.

Back to the house and looking forward to more adventures.
