If you want to take a trip to Skomer Island, then Martin's Haven is where you will be heading for.
This tiny little cove is situated on Pembrokeshire's most south westerly peninsula. Boat's leave for Skomer Island at regular intervals during the summer season, please check times here.
Just above the cove is the Lockley Lodge Visitor Centre which the Wildlife Trust of South West Wales run. The centre has all the information you will ever need about Skomer Island. See their website for more info...
Other interesting things at Martin's Haven include the Coast Guard Hut situated high up on the headland above the cove - take the Pembrokeshire Coast Path west to discover it and continue on to reach Deadman's Bay for some dramatic jagged rock formations. On a wild day, watching the waves crash in to this small inlet you can imagine how this bay got its name.
Parking at Martin's Haven is charged by the National Trust - National Trust Members can park for free.
