Places to stay in St. Davids

As Wales’s smallest city, St David’s may not evoke particularly high expectations, but it should! Stunning coastal scenery surrounds it and the area’s many beaches make St David’s the perfect holiday spot. But the city is not just a pretty face; the ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace and the magnificent cathedral and are among St David’s treasures, and thousands of visitors make pilgrimages here every year.

Families will no doubt be kept entertained by all the area has to offer, including dolphin and seal spotting at the right time of the year, the chance to explore burial chambers and the remains of a submarine look-out station, as well as a visit to the site of a Second World War aircraft crash.

Five Free Things To Do In St. Davids

St David’s Cathedral
No stay in the city is complete without a visit to this beautifully maintained site. Explore the Cathedral Treasury to lay eyes on objects discovered in the graves of four early bishops, some dating back to the 13th century.

Whitesands Bay
Enjoy a day on the beach at Whitesands Bay where you can go swimming safe in the knowledge that it’s one of Britain’s Blue Flag beaches, or simply spend the day relaxing while the kids tire themselves out building sandcastles.

Go cycling
The whole family can enjoy an adventure on two wheels when you head out to explore the scenic trails around St David’s. Head to nearby Porthgain or Solva, or why not make Whitesands or Traeth Llyfn beaches your destination? Keep eyes peeled for hidden sandy coves and enjoy a backdrop of clear blue sea and imposing cliffs.

Treginnis circular walk
This is the ideal route for an enjoyable walk because you end up where you started – no worrying about having to turn back! Make your way around the Treginnis Peninsula, ensuring to keep eyes peeled for porpoises as you pass Ramsey Sound.

Go swimming
