It’s official, the Pembrokeshire coast is the 2018 UK Holiday Destination Of The Year!
BBC Countryfile Magazine readers voted our region as the best place to holiday this year, with its stunning beaches, breathtaking coastline and picture postcard destinations.
Almost 180,000 votes were cast by 30,000 people, with our region pipping the Isle of Wight to the title.
Here’s what Countryfile had to say: “With a wealth of natural attractions it’s no wonder that the wild coastline of Pembrokeshire has romped home with this year’s top spot. It’s a haven for marine life, with dolphins and porpoises often seen from Strumble Head, whale watching boat trips off the coast, and plentiful puffins and seals at Skomer.
Surrounded by the sea on three sides, no part of Pembrokeshire is more than 14 miles from the coast and locals claim to have salt water in their veins. Bask on the wide sandy beaches, trek the 186 mile-long Coast Path, and don’t forget to stop in at St David’s, the smallest city in Britain.”
Judge Miranda Krestovnikoff added: “Pembrokeshire has a really special place in my heart as it’s where I had my first ever scuba dive.
“Living in the South West, it’s a firm family favourite of ours, we love that the beaches are less crowded than Devon and Cornwall but the wildlife is no less spectacular with choughs, puffins and cetaceans to see offshore. The coastal path is a joy to walk and there are so many great places to eat local and seasonal produce. A worthy winner!”
