Coasteering in Pembrokeshire | Getting Active on the Welsh Coastline
If you can catch Pembrokeshire’s ‘mother nature’ in a kind mood, you’ll be provided with some of Wales most idyllic coastal scenery. Calm seas, blue sky and acres of coastal cliffs, caves and coastal shores. The perfect chance to explore coasteering with our excellent guide Tommy from Preseli Ventures.
So how would you describe Coasteering in Pembrokeshire
A sea based activity that’s fine for all abilities. Equally enjoyable for adults & children (min age 8 years)… it’s probably worth mentioning that you need to be able to cope with swimming to undertake this adventure… But the thermal wet suit, buoyancy aid and helmets make sure it’s a safe activity that most active families will love…… It’s not all about testing yourself by flinging yourself of ever increasing jumping platforms…
Look at those happy smiling faces, do you think we enjoyed it!!!
You’ll see a unique landscape each time courtesy of the changing tides, waves and wildlife. Plus there’s plenty of chances to work together as a family to overcome the many obstacles you might face…. Call it an eco-adventure and you won’t be far wrong!!!
From the very moment we turned down the twisting narrow lane in Preseli’s white minibus to reveal this view (check out this webpage for more ideas on views in Pembrokeshire) we were hooked…. Having enjoyed seeing Pembrokeshire’s coastline from a surfboard, a climbing harness and by foot… we’ve really fallen in love with this laid back part of Wales. Perhaps even more so now we’ve clambered along it’s beautiful cliffs, jumped in off precipitous ledges or even got friendly with its local jellyfish!!
want to see it from a different perspective?
For us as parents, our European Roadtrip has been about celebrating what’s available across Europe… Not just learning about it in a book but actually experiencing it at first hand… Just imagine the smell of sea salt in your nostrils as the sea kelp catches your leg before you drift down past rocks towards a cave full of seals… As Libby shows above, it just doesn’t get much better than this! The perfect chance for a Geography & Marine Biology lesson!!
But Coasteering is so much more than just an adrenaline seekers paradise..It really offers a unique experience to discover the beautiful shallow coastal caves, hidden coves and little islands around Pembrokeshire’s breathtakingly, rugged coastline.
With origins from the late 19th Century and initially referred to as ‘sea-level traversing, Coasteering takes about 2-3hrs and can easily fill part or the whole of a day on the coastline in Wales. But take it from us, we’re hooked and can’t wait to return as a family to do our own exploring…..
