Porthsele is an attractive beach near Whitesands Bay close to the Cathedral City ofSt David’s. The beach has golden sand at low tide and is a good place to swim. The water is a beautiful turquoise blue and is the perfect compliment to a day in the sun while on holiday in the Pembrokeshire National Park. Surrounded by sandstone cliffs Porthsele is a small place without any facilities close by. Toilets, a cafe and parking are available at Whitesands, however. To reach Porthsele start walking along the coast path and follow a small track down to the small beach. The area is popular with climbers, so if you and a friend are on a climbing holiday in Pembrokeshire then Porthsele and the Whitesands area are a good choice to explore. At low tide there are also rock pools to explore, let the children find shells and crabs in the pools before trying a spot of surfing or body boarding on the water.

The St David’s peninsula is a popular place with walkers, so a walking holiday in Pembrokeshire would benefit from a glance at the Walking Pembrokeshire website. The site offers routes along the Coastal path and a variety of country walks. Both types of walks can be done from the Porthsele and St David’s area. This area is also National Trust land so is well protected and maintained. Be sure to visit St David’s and have a refreshing bite to eat at the newly refurbished Sound Cafe. The guardian noted it as one of the top ten budget restaurants in Pembrokeshire, a good choice for feeding a large family or some hungry walkers. Whilst in St David’s head to the top of the town and pay a visit to Oriel y Parc. This modern, contemporary gallery is also a good tourist information centre and often has exhibitions from leading UK and local artists who draw inspiration from Pembrokeshire’s fantastic landscape.
