Summer hols to Solva, Pembrokeshire

Hi, after many boating holidays in Dorset and Devon, we are possibly looking further afield, and came across Solva Harbour, Pembrokeshire.

Has anyone done this area, if so, any tips?

Great place for a spot of cruising............

Starting with this thread , check out some more of DHF's picture work ( from the sea and air ....! )

La Bamba Cruising - Pembrokeshire Coast

Just around the corner to Ramsey Island , Strumble Lighthouse ( whale watching ) & beyond or across the bay to Skomer ( Puffins ), Skokholm or perhaps out to Grassholme ( Gannet Colony ) or maybe the Smalls .

Keep a good eye out for lobster / crab pots ! Happy to cruise with you if I am there at the time ( as I'm sure others would be too ).

You will need a bit of luck with the weather , as it can get quite lively out there if at all windy. Bern

That is the next harbour around from mine!

Really pretty coastline around here but then I am biased! I have never launched out of solva but have been in there a bit. What size boat are thinking of bringing?

Like all of the small harbours around here it dries at low water and can get quite interesting in the entrance with the right conditions!

I think they have visitors moorings but you would need to check on cost availability etc ( I might have harbour masters number somewhere if you want it) and if you are on a trailer then there two slips. Also there are loads of over slips to launch at in the area depending on which way the wind is blowing.

Loads to see and do and great ribbing!!!

Thanks Guys,

Always can rely on ribnet members for a helpful response.
It would be two ribs coming across, both 6.5m, one Brig and one Ballistic.
Have seen a bit on telly and google on this area, and it looks really nice.
Once we have a better idea on location and dates, I'll add to this tread to see if anyone is about when we're there.
Always good to have local knowledge.
Thanks once again, Mike

Solva is really beautiful in the summer. As is that entire coastline. I would 100% reccomend. You'd have to catch the tide right, mind. At low tide it's dry as a bone.
