Pembrokeshire is the most western county in Wales known for its spectacular cliffs, colonies of endangered bird species and natural scenery. Saundersfoot and Tenby, both seaside resorts, offer plenty of evening entertainment and tours to book during the day. Larger towns such as Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock are great bases to explore the neighborhood as well. Some of the larger bays include Newport Bay, Fishguard Bay and St Bride's Bay, while Whitesands Bay, Marloes Beach, Freshwater East & West and Baradundle Bay are some of the popular beaches.
Pembroke shire is situated in the main shipping-lane between the north and south of the UK. There are hundreds of shipwrecks, many of them sank during the Great Storm of 1703, but you can also dive on more recent trading vessels and huge steamers. Skomer Island is one of the most popular islands reached out of Martins Haven (Jack Sound) every hour. Protected as Marine National Park, you can see plenty of endangered bird species and playful dolphins in the water. Skokholm Island, just to the west of St Ann's Head, has a huge colony of seals in Seals Bay. The Smalls are a set of treacherous rocks providing divers with plenty of wrecks littering the ocean floor. Other highlights nearby are the thousands of Gannets on Grassholm Island, the grey seals on Ramsey Island, the huge colony of Cormorants on St Margarets (only by boat) and the Abbey and beaches of Caldey Island.
You can dive on WWII bombers, large cargo liners and trading vessels, there are colorful reefs, steep pinnacles, gullies and underwater caves. Its marine life is diverse and very unpredictable; you can see dolphins, but also tropical species such as triggerfish and seahorses. There are whales and sunfish, but one of the most common special attractions is a dive with a group of seals. You can find patches of bright cup corals and star coral. Its many sheltered coves provide perfect diving opportunities in all sorts of weather, making Pembrokeshire a dive destination for everybody throughout the year.
