Basic youth hostel on St Davids Peninsula that's popular with surfers.

YHA St Davids

Llaethdy Whitesands Pembrokeshire SA62 6PR 0845 371 9141

We say

Basic youth hostel, popular with surfers, with beds in either a traditional old Pembrokeshire farmhouse or one of the farm’s converted outbuildings. The location is lovely, on the lower slopes of Carn Llidi, although if you’re surfing you really need a car to access Whitesands, which is about a mile away.

**This hostel is available for exclusive hire. Click here for prices.

They say

On the Pembrokeshire coast, in the breathtaking Whitesands Bay, sits YHA St Davids, a converted farmhouse ideal for a rural retreat, cheap family holiday or an action-packed activity experience.  Everything from watersports, climbing and riding can be found within reach of this picturesque Welsh hostel. Nearby enjoy surfing lessons with Whitesands Surf School, or for a more relaxed day try and fit in a trip to Ramsey Island, an Eden of bird and marine life.
