Pembrokeshire – South Wales
\\\ Dog Walks
Featuring dog walking around the UK.
Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches.
Wales is a beautiful country and very understated by Brits when it comes to visiting the extraordinary countryside and coastal routes.
The most south-western county of Wales, Pembrokeshire offers incredibly beautiful eastern, southern and western facing sandy beaches, tucked away havens punctuate all along the coastline with small hamlets and villages offering holiday lets, perfect for anyone visiting during winter or summer providing wonderful dog walking and sea swimming opportunities. The first time you visit these areas you will be amazed as to why you hadn’t earlier.
During the height of the holiday season, 1st May until the end of September, there is a dog walking restriction on certain beaches such as Saundersfoot and Amroth, Tenby South, also Poppit, Newgale, Broad Haven, Dale, Lydstep.
This provides an outstanding holiday season with your pooch during Spring, Autumn and Winter to take full advantage of the miles of glorious sand, some shingle and pebble beaches and sometimes, rocky areas.
Sometimes referred to as ‘Little England’ Pembrokeshire’s fabulous Atlantic coastline offers the renowned UK’s only Coastal National Park and the world’s second-largest tidal range. It is important to check tidal levels before venturing too far walking along clean sandy beaches and keeping an eye on your dog if they like swimming in the waters. Tenby is fortunate to have a working RNLI lifeboat station.
Vets are available in case of pet emergencies close by at Tenby specialising in small and large pets.
Visit Pembrokeshire has a helpful page of downloads of those dog walking beach restrictions. On two beaches, Whitesands and Tenby North to include harbour beach, the restriction covers the whole of the beach.
Saundersfoot and Tenby have quality holiday lets by Rural Retreats. High House at Tenby comes highly recommended, situated just 80 yards to the beach.
Tenby retains it’s historic 13th Century Town Walls and is referred to as ‘The Jewel In the Pembrokeshire’s Crown’ creating a busy tourist destination. Saundersfoot has a glorious 2.2 mile stretch of golden sands with easy access onto the beach including parking. If out of season, with less retail outlets open, remember to take good supplies of water for your thirsty dog after energetic hours of freedom spent on the sands.
Lydstep is a small village 4 miles south of Tenby and again, boasts a wonderful stretch of sandy beach. The whole of Lydstep Haven is occupied by The Lydstep Beach Holiday Park which is mostly privately owned caravans but some are available to rent.
