Things to do

Solva is a pretty fishing village set at the head of a river valley and within the Pembrokeshire National Park. The coastal path leads through the village the lower part of which boasts a range of restaurants, galleries, pubs, tea rooms and craft shops. Withi a short walking distance of the lower village, upper Solva has a church, a shop/newsagents/post office and a pub.

A visit to Solva quay is a wonderful experience for all ages at high tide (including easy and cheap entertainment for the children and those young at heart in the form of crabbing!) Fishing and boat trips run through the summer months. At low tide a short walk across the river and along the sands will bring you to Solva beach.

In addition there are a number of lovely beaches within minutes by car from the village including the broad splendour of Newgale and Whitesands and the pretty cove of Caerfai.

The Cathedral City of St Davids is only four miles from Solva, the Cathedral itself and Bishop’s Palace being well worth a visit. The booking of activities is easily available, including boat trips, seal watching, canoeing and surf lessons.

Whether your aim is to relax and watch the world go by, or to do something more energetic, the area has plenty to offer.
