Pembrokeshire's very edge from here on it's sea and islands.

The Marloes Peninsula combines dramatic coastal scenery and safe bathing on golden sands. You can look out for seabirds and seals and the remains of ancient peoples. There are walks for all abilities starting from the National Trust car parks at Marloes Sands and Martins Haven.

The boat for nearby Skomer Island leaves from the tiny harbour of Martin's Haven.

The geology is spectacular, including both sandstones and volcanic rocks with folds, faults and jagged rocks. An iron age fort on Gateholm that was the subject of a Time Team dig overlooks Marloes Sands, one of Pembrokeshire's finest beaches.

The Deer Park was once a well defended Iron Age coastal fort. It takes its name from a failed attempt to establish a deer park at the turn of the 20th century.

Marloes Mere is a birdwatching hotspot attracting a large number of waterfowl in winter.
