Out and about in Pembrokeshire
National Geographic names Pembrokeshire coast path as one of the best places in the world to visit – it’s been voted the second best coastal destination in the world sharing second place with the Tutukaka coast in New Zealand
The Griffin Inn is situated directly on Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park and right on the waters edge. It’s a great place to stand outside in the summer with a pint in hand, watching the board-sailors and dinghies skimming across the bay. Or, in the winter when the fires come roaring to life making the Griffin Inn the perfect place to head following a pleasant walk.
Dale and Marloes Peninsula is a popular area for water sports – sailing, canoeing, surfing, windsurfing and for walking and bird watching. Boat trips to Skomer Island leave from Martin’s Haven which is only a few minutes drive from the Griffin Inn.
The Dale Peninsula Walk is a must. It follows a long, convoluted coast with constantly changing views as it turns from the Haven to open seas and views over to Skomer and Skokholm Island. You start at one side of the village and end up at the other side unless walking on further to Marloes Sands. The Peninsula is 6.5 miles (taking approx 3 hrs to walk).
