Coasteering: What, Where, Why?

May 2023

Coasteering was born here in West Wales, inspired of course by the fantastically rugged and gorgeous coastline - the second best coastline in the world after New Zealand, according to National Geographic (and we're very happy to take their word for it!). Coasteering basically involves moving yourself along the coastline by scrambling over rocks, exploring caves, jumping off cliffs, hopping on rocks, rushing down waterfalls. It's a super fun way to explore the Pembrokeshire coast, discover the wonderful wildlife and enjoy the spectacular views that define this amazing part of the country.

Sound good? Make sure you include it in your itinerary as part of your stay with us. The operators are excellent at catering to all ages from eight upwards, and all abilities and experience; so don't worry if you don't want to do the big cliff jumps, you don't have to. It's definitely advisable to book up with an accredited operator, as they will be very familiar with the coastline, the tides, the caves, and also when and where to avoid breeding birds and seals.

Local operators

1. Celtic Quest Coasteering

This award winning team would love to welcome you! They are based south of us near Abereiddy, one of the most spectacular sections of the coast.

2. Cardigan Bay Active

Based in Cardigan town, this friendly team have a wealth of experience and would love to take you on a trip round Cardigan Bay. Our guests get a 10% discount, too!

3. TYF The original and the best - this forward thinking business created Coasteering in 1986, and it's since become a very popular activity here in West Wales. This would be good to combine with a visit to St Davids to make a day of it.

4. Tenby Adventure

Tenby is always worth a visit while you're here, so this might be a combination day too. Or if you want to keep going with the adrenaline, you could head to Oakwood theme park, too.
