The county of Pembrokeshire is surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty unspoilt by contemporary civilisation.
It is the only National Park in the United Kingdom which is primarily designated for its coastal landscape. Nowhere in the Pembrokeshire National Park is more than ten miles from the sea. It has 44 beaches, 15 of which have been awarded the prestigious Green Coast Award – the award recognises small beaches that have the highest environmental standards and top quality bathing water. The Milford Haven Waterway is the second deepest natural harbour in the World, second only to Sydney Harbour in Australia. One third of Britain’s nesting pairs of Choughs are in Pembrokeshire and Grassholm has the world’s largest Gannet colony.
