10 Child-Friendly Activities on Pembrokeshire Coast 

If you’re heading to Pembrokeshire Coast for the day, or if you’re in the area for a short break, it’s always good to find some activities that the whole family can enjoy. Here are 10 activities for all ages.

 

 

  1. Llys-y-Fran Country Park and Reservoir
    Country parks and reservoirs can present a whole range of opportunities for families to enjoy themselves how they wish. At Llys-y-Fran you can pay £2 to park your car, or you can take a bus or train that stop nearby, and then take advantage of the wide open spaces, beautiful scenery and peaceful Welsh countryside. If you enjoy walking, cycling, having a picnic or just spending time outside then this is the venue for you. If you’re looking to tire the kids out then there’s a playground for them to run around in. There is a shop on site and a café that’s open between April and October serving up hot and cold food and drink so it’s not vital that you take your own food.

  5. Blue Lagoon Water Park, Narberth
    It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside when you’re at the Blue Lagoon Water Park. Open from 12 noon every day, the park is great for any water-loving families with plenty of slides and flumes to fly down as well as a smaller pool that’s perfect for the little ones. If you want something more relaxing and subdued then you can sit on the wave seat as the gentle waves lap against your feet on the shore, or take advantage of the indoor or outdoor spa pools. There are also plenty of places on-site to grab a drink or bite to eat making it the perfect family day out whatever the weather.

  7. Go Karting at Carew Karting
    Located 5-miles outside the town of Tenby, Carew Karting is great for adrenaline-loving families and even has a number of junior karts available for younger drivers (aged 8+) to have a go in. The circuit has been open since 1999 and there is no need to pre-book, just turn up and have some fun! The track itself is 500 metres long meaning it’s big enough to provide some good racing and short enough that you can rack up the laps and get a feel for the corners and where you can accelerate. There is even a tricky new ‘S’ section on the circuit, and families can be pitted against each other on the grid if you wish.

  13. Carew Castle and Tidal Mill
    With two attractions in one place there’s a great chance to experience Welsh history at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill.

While no longer in operation, the Mill is one of just five in the UK and is open to the public enabling guests to see how the water flowing by was used as a sustainable energy source through the ages. The two attractions are ideal for educating and entertaining children, helping them to understand both history and engineering, and you can even try fishing for crabs outside the Mill!
