Coasteering, kayaking, beaches, cycling, walking and friendly badgers! – Pembrokeshire, Wales

A wonderful place for everyone, plenty of family activities, historical places and plenty of space if you would like to simply relax.  Pembrokeshire’s coastline is certainly a major attraction.  There are several sightseeing boat trips from various ports where you have the opportunity to see seals, dolphins, whales and of course dozens of varieties of unique birds.  The cliffs dotted along the coast create a perfect ecosystem for the birds to mate and nest. 
Feel like seeing things up close from the water, then kayaking should be on your list of activities.  A leisurely paddle will take you into small coves and caves while you can look for lobster, crabs, and a variety of marine life.  You might be lucky enough to have a curious seal or dolphin follow you on your adventure.   Being nimble and quiet, you can approach the cliffs to get a great view of the birds as they continually fly around from their perched nests.  
Of course for the more adventurous how about getting into the water?  Coasteering is great fun where you kit up in a wet suite, gloves, and helmet and then go ride the waves, do some rock climbing and of course jumping from various heights into the sea.  Riding a gentle current into a bay and getting sloshed around in a ‘washing machine whirlpool’ is tremendous fun.  With the right guides you will quickly learn the various techniques of entering the water, even from jumping from as high as 11 meters (36 feet)! 
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is 186 miles of scenic beauty.  Not only are you covering a bit of distance, but the total rise and fall along the trail is 35,000 feet, greater than Mount Everest!   Of course not everyone has to be that dedicated to complete the whole path as there are hundreds of smaller walks in the region. 
Maybe relaxing on the beach is more your style of holiday, there are plenty for you to visit, many isolated so you can peacefully read a book, catch up on sleep or contemplate the world.  At the end of the day having pleasant cottage to enjoy turns your trip into a perfect holiday.  With home exchange you can benefit from all the amenities of a staying in a home – plenty of space and bedrooms for everyone, full kitchen, living room and in many cases extras like a garden area or even a hot tub!
