Pembrokeshire's offshore islands are a highlight of any visit to the National Park. Each one has its own special character and unique landscape, where wildlife flourishes and time stands still.
The islands were named by the Vikings who sailed along this coast in the 8th to 10th centuries, though Caldey and Ramsey have older Welsh names reflecting early Christian tradition.
The islands were inhabited far back in prehistory and most were farmed well into the 20th century.
Today, many are nature reserves and all but Caldey are uninhabited, apart from wardens and volunteers.
