Nature Explorers

Pembrokeshire is home to 14 coastal and inland nature reserves, making it a hugely popular destination for nature explorers.

From wild flowers thriving on hedge banks and cliffs, to rare species of lichen, to playful dolphins and porpoises, the county is bursting with sights and sounds.

It is a bird-watcher’s paradise. Sea birds including puffins, gannets, manx shearwaters and guillemots having a huge presence. There are particular concentrations on Skomer and Skockholm islands which are surrounded by some of the richest waters for wildlife around the British Isles.

Atlantic grey seals come to our coastline to breed, making for some great sightings of adorable pups between August and December. Intertidal marine plants and animals settle in rock pools, and the county’s reefs offer exceptional snorkeling opportunities, bringing vivid colours to life.

And in Autumn and Winter, Pembrokeshire is the place to come to see and hear one of the most incredible natural phenomena in action: thousands upon thousands of starlings in synchronised swooping arriving to roost. Spell-binding, awe-inspiring. It’s what Pembrokeshire is all about.
