The offshore islands of Skomer, Grassholm and Ramsey are famous for their resident and migrant birds and grey seal colonies. The surrounding countryside is a haven for badgers, seen on a late spring evening.
Autumn is long and mild. Walk along the Coast Path to see the newborn seal pups in the quiet coves. Visit prehistoric monuments, the iron-age hill-for at Caerfai and neolithic burial chambers on Carn Llidi. In autumn the heath and gorse on St Davids Head create spectacular patches of purple and gold.
