Just before the village, a signpost directing you to Cwm yr Eglwys will take you down a long winding lane into the hidden valley with just a handful of houses, a car park and churchyard with the striking remains of St Brynach’s Church facing bravely out to sea. Head past the church to find a beautiful, sheltered sandy beach with slipway for small vessels – Cwm yr Eglwys is an ideal spot for SUPs, kayakers, or even kids who just want to float about safely on body boards! The low cliffs either side of the beach are home to some great rockpools, teeming with life.

From here, a circular walk takes you around National Trust-owned Dinas Island – which shows off The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park at its best. Dinas Head is 465 feet above sea level and it can be hard going but the views are worth the effort. If you’re full of energy, take the headland walk and enjoy spotting wildlife, but don’t worry – Dinas Island is actually connected to the mainland by a low-lying neck of land half a mile long which features a wide, accessible footpath suitable for all. Both routes lead you to Pwllgwaelod, where you’ll find the popular Old Sailor pub and restaurant (formerly the Sailors’ Safety, named for the light it kept burning as a guide to ships) just yards back from the sheltered beach with views across Fishguard Bay.
