Meet the team
Manager recommends: For a change from the beach on your seaside break, climb Carn Llidi. The path starts from the hostel and the views from the top are breathtaking. Look out for welsh ponies and buzzards while you’re walking, and badgers in the evening. If you're looking for a surfing holiday, Whitesands Bay beach offers some sizable waves.
Or if you love wildlife, take a boat from St Justinian to Ramsey Island in spring. There’s an enjoyable 3.5-mile trail around the island so take a stroll and acquaint yourself with the wealth of local creatures. The towering cliffs to the west of the island are home to buzzards, ravens, razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes.
