Coronavirus

Latest Information

As the Welsh Government has eased travel restrictions, visitor facilities around the National Park are beginning to open. However, life has changed, so a visit now will be different and we must all continue to take action to stop the spread of Coronavirus and keep Pembrokeshire safe.

We are asking anyone considering a visit to the National Park to respect the land, community and each other, and play your part in moving out of lockdown safely together.

If you are going to visit the Pembrokeshire Coast please plan ahead before you come.

While we were away, nature reclaimed our National Park. We want to keep our part of Pembrokeshire’s paradise safe as we begin to explore outdoors again, so we ask you to tread lightly. Follow the Countryside Code and leave only footprints.

What do I need to do?

Know the latest guidance – check the Welsh Government website for the up-to-date advice and be sure to follow social distancing and hand hygiene measures at all times.

Plan ahead before you travel – check for any disruption to your planned route and destination. Some car parks and other facilities remain closed for the time being. Bring your own food and drink and take your rubbish home with you.

Adapt to the situation – if you arrive at an area and it feels too busy then it is too busy. Have a back-up plan in case you need to move on.

Be kind to our communities and each other – be mindful of local residents and communities who live and work in the areas you are visiting, please be kind and remember the three ‘R’s:

  • Respect the Land

  • Respect the Community

  • Respect each Other

Follow the National Park Authority on Twitter and Facebook to be kept up to date of the latest developments in the Park.

Coronavirus Plan Ahead

What to expect when you get here

Areas including our main beaches may be busier than usual, especially during periods of good weather. There will be many places you will want to revisit in the National Park now that some restrictions have been eased. If it feels to busy, it is too busy. Please be flexible and be prepared to move on and save that experience for another day.

Things may take longer than usual. Be prepared for queues at toilets, car parks and other facilities as people will need to following social distancing and hand hygiene measures.

New signage and guidelines will be in place at key locations to help you enjoy your visit safely. Please read and follow them carefully. Remember to keep your safety, that of your families and our communities as a first priority.
