The Pembrokeshire Coast Path twists and turns its way for 186 miles along the most breathtaking coastline in Britain. It covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.
St Davids is named after the patron saint of Wales, Saint David. It is the smallest city in Britain with a population of just over 1,600. City status was awarded in 1995 although the roots of St Davids go back to the 4th century when St David himself lived here.
The magnificent Cathedral at St Davids dates back to the 12th century, although several older cathedrals were built before that on the same site. Unfortunately, St Davids was prone to Viking attacks, being so close to the sea. The Vikings destroyed several of the older structures. Modern day St Davids is a quaint and character-full place much loved by everyone who knows it.
Red Bull Cliff Diving
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series returns to the UK in September to the picturesque location of the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy in Pembrokeshire, south west Wales. The competition takes place near St David's, which is among the smallest cities in Europe with a population of only 1,800 and is built around the ancient cathedral of St David's.
With three English divers, the United Kingdom is the most-represented nation within the World Series in 2013 and Leeds' Matt Cowen, who was awarded a last-minute wildcard entry for this stop last season, before making it into the permanent divers' list via qualification, will try, together with three-time World Series champion Gary Hunt and former Olympic diver Blake Aldridge, to claim a podium in front of a home crowd at the sixth stop on the 2013 calendar of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
In 2015 Frank Asen from Germany was the official winner of the contest by his own. The video below shows the unbelievable cliff jump of Frank.
