Situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Saundersfoot is a very popular destination for those seeking a sandy beach for relaxing or enjoying a swim.
The village can trace its history back to the medieval period and with the increase of demand for coal from the area it became a thriving harbour with about 30k tons of coal being exported annually with this trade giving much needed employment to the local inhabitants.
With the decline in the coal industry the area developed into the thriving seaside resort we see today along with the harbour it is very easy to see why it has become so popular with visitors.
