Coasteering Wales

Coasteering Wales

The best place for Coasteering Wales is undoubtedly the Pembrokeshire coastline in West Wales.   Coasteering began over 100 years ago in the UK and is now proving to be the ultimate coastal adventure activity in Wales. Coasteering involves climbing, scrambling, traversing, cliff jumping and swimming in some of the most spectacular coastal regions in Wales. You’ll find yourself swimming through sea caves, climbing along untouched coastal regions and taking dramatic cliff jumps into the sea.

A unique Coasteering adventure is guaranteed no matter what the conditions. Our experienced coasteering guides will take you to beautiful, untouched, rugged locations along the Pembrokeshire coastline where you’ll enjoy, clean, unsullied wilderness, brimming with idyllic coves, sandy beaches and rocky headlands.

Coasteering Pembrokehire (West Wales)
Coasteering in Pembrokeshire was listed among the world’s greatest adventures in the Lonely Planet guidebook and as one of the best places to visit in the world according to the National Geographic Traveller Magazine. Our video and photographs have all been taken from this location.  The coastline is open to the Atlantic Ocean and can get some great surf, especially in the autumn and winter months, it is also littered with gullies and hidden caves to explore.

Coasteering Gower (South Wales)

Although Coasteering can be run along the Gower (South Wales) coastline it is not very suitable and we do not recommend it for the following reasons:

*The coastline on the Gower is tide dependent i.e. Coasteering can only be run 1 hr either side of high tide otherwise the tide is too far away from the headland unlike west wales.
*There are very few jumps- in some locations only one (one of the main reasons people like Coasteering)
*Safety- to run this activity safely you need a site that can be used in all weathers (that wont be cancelled in a higher swell) with fairly simple access and exit points should the sea conditions change (which they can do quickly) again this is not really possible with nearly all Gower locations.
*The headland used in West Wales is littered with gullies, hidden coves etc. its more varied and interesting than  Coasteering locations on the Gower.
*On a sunny day the water in West Wales has a tropical aqua blue colour very similar to being abroad (see photo above) on the Gower its tends to be more dull grey in appearance.

If you are interested in Coasteering but looking for an activity closer to Cardiff or Swansea we would definitely recommend our most popular activity- Gorge Scrambling (aka Canyoning) only 45 minutes from Cardiff City Centre -and 20 minutes from Swansea.

To arrange a Coasteering booking we require a minimum group size of six, if you do not have a minimum group size you are welcome to join one of our open events.
