Where shall we go and explore this Autumn? Pembrokeshire we say! What shall we go and see? Seals!
The quaint towns, coves and beaches scattered along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path have made it a firm favourite for walkers in the summer months, but for those with a nose for adventure there’s plenty to enjoy in the colder months too.
West Wales is home to over five thousand Atlantic grey seals, and you will be able to see the newborn seal pups from late August through to December. During the winter months you will also be able to see the seals as they come ashore to moult.
One of the best places to spot the seals is Cemaes Head, which is in the most northerly part of Pembrokeshire and is the highest sea cliff in Wales, where the seals use the secluded coves to raise their young.
We’d strongly recommend that you view the the seals from the clifftop with your binoculars, so as not to disturb them, however if you’re after an even better view, then you could hop into a sea kayak for a guided trip.
We’ve put together some resources to help you find out more about Pembrokeshire.
Our friends at the OS have made a lovely little map to accompany our Pembrokeshire Coast Path walking holiday which you can explore over here, and you can also read more about the amazing views along this coastal stretch over here
