Found on the tip of Wales’ southwestern coast, Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park is a wonderfully wild corner of the British Isles. The park itself stretches across 612 square kilometres. Its landscape varies; encompassing volcanic cliff faces, ancient glacial valleys and famous sights such as the Preseli Hills and The Daugleddau Estuary.

Meanwhile, St Davids – where you’ll be staying – may be the UK’s smallest city, but it sure has a lot of heart with its moody gothic cathedrals, islands inhabited by puffins and remote, sandy beaches.

Start point

Your adventure will start at approx. 17.30 on Friday evening when you arrive at St Davids Bunkbarns.

Your adventure will finish on the Sunday afternoon after your final surf lesson.

What to Expect

Day 1: Arrival and Orientation in St Davids

Meet your hosts at 17:30 on Friday evening in St Davids Bunkbarns, the bunkhouse style accommodation you’ll be staying in. Settle in for the evening by the firepit and enjoy panoramic views of Celtic Deep and the puffin-inhabited islands of Skomer and Grassholm.

If you’re lucky, you may see some dolphins, porpoises and the occasional minke whale in the bay, as well as birds of prey.

Day 2: Catch Waves

Wake yourself up with a morning’s swim on Caerfai Beach. Wetsuits are optional, but your hosts recommend just jumping right in. Then it’s time to tuck into some breakfast, before heading to Newgale beach for a three-hour surf lesson (15-minute drive, shuttle provided). Don’t worry if you’ve never surfed before – the lessons will be tailored to your ability.

After lunch, you’ll return to basecamp for a three-hour yoga workshop on the beach. The class is geared at building your confidence, so once again, previous experience isn’t necessary.

You’ll then have time to wander along the coastal path and into St Davids. Alternatively, you find yourself a quiet corner and get stuck into a book. For dinner, huddle around the firepit for a seafood BBQ. Afterwards, you’ll have the option for a restorative practice, which is focused on calming the nervous system.

Day 3: Final Day of Surf and Yoga

Start the day with an (optional) dip in the sea. Then have some breakfast before taking to the sea for one final surf 3-hour lesson in Newgale. Enjoy some lunch, unwind in a one one-hour vinyasa class and then it’s time to say our goodbyes.

Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, and weather conditions and forecasts. On the event that there’s no surf, your host will replace the surf sessions with kayaking, Coasteering or climbing depending on group preference.


You’ll stay in a cozy, beachside bunkhouse. It’s basic but comfortable and comes with plenty of space for unwinding and out-of-class-hours practice. You’ll wake up to the sound of the ocean and can spend your evenings by the warmth of the firepit, watching the sunset over the Celtic Deep, Pembrokeshire’s coastline and its litany of uninhabited islands that are scattered along the horizon.
