Ramsey Island – Family fun in St Davids, Pembrokeshire

One of the things our children love more than anything when exploring St Davids, Pembrokeshire is visiting Ramsey Island. It’s such a special place as you feel completely cut off from “the mainland” and all the pressures that go with it. You feel like you’re back in a microcosm of nature and sea life. 

Ramsey Island is owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds which means Ramsey’s cliffs are perfect for breeding seabirds in spring and in summer. Choughs, peregrines and ravens also nest on the sea cliffs and in the island’s sea-caves. From May to September, bluebells, pink thrift and spring squill carpet the island followed by gorgeous purple heather in late summer. 

It’s such a fantastic place to visit while staying in your Yewdale holiday cottage and you can easily organise a boat trip from many of the vendors in St David’s city centre. 

There’s no place in Pembrokeshire – or Wales – like it!
