Penbwchdy Head

Pembroke North

Large, sombre headland enclosing Pwll Deri Bay. A serious venue, but with calm seas and good weather the scale and atmosphere of the routes can provide a memorable day out.

Restrictions apply from 1 March - 1 August.

Reason: Nesting Birds

Penbwchdy Head to Pwll Deri - Check signs as restrictions may be lifted early. The cliffs south of the headland are unaffected.

Group Advice

Not suitable

Area information

Less frequented than the south, there are some very popular cliffs along the southern bays of St David's, but also some very remote and atmospheric cliffs further north. Wildlife is abundant and the abscence of a formal restriction does not mean that protected birds are not present - so climbers are asked to be observant and avoid routes if the prescence of climbers is obviously causing disturbance to the birds. Many of the bays are also important seal breeding areas - if breeding seals are present then again please avoid.
