 All of the images on this page are from our walk at the National Trust's Martin's Haven, located at the southern end of St Brides Bay. The photo in the centre above shows the view across to Skomer Island, boat trips operate to the island from Martin's Haven during the summer to see this National Nature Reserve.
Considering it is such a small area there is a lot to see, seals and their pups can be spotted on the the beaches at the bottom of the cliffs with pupping beginning in late August, peaking in late September/early October.
Whilst visiting we were lucky enough to see the replica of Captain James Cook's ship Endeavour sailing past on a tour of St Brides Bay. For more information on the ship click here. (Link to external site)
The National Trust has reintroduced grazing by ponies here to prevent invasive scrub from choking the heathland flora, although I have a sneaky suspicion judging from how nosy they were that they may be more interested in any tasty morsels offered by passing visitors.
