- Walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path Winding over 300km of breathtaking coastal paths, country lanes, and bridleways, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a haven for dogs and dog-lovers alike. Dogs are welcome on most beaches, although there are some restrictions in summer. Your furry friends are even welcome on the buses that ferry passengers between the coastal areas.
- Visit Manorbier Bay With its craggy rockpools and wide expanse of sand, Manorbier Beach is the perfect dog-friendly location. Dogs are welcome year-round, and there is a pretty coastal path off the beach leading eastwards towards Swanlake Bay or westwards towards Presipe bay and Skrinkle Haven.
