PLACES TO VISIT / THINGS TO DO
SAUNDERSFOOT has something for everyone. Around the working harbour from which you can go on fishing trips, there are beaches that stretch from Amroth & Coppet Hall to Monkstone Point and beyond providing miles of beautiful sands, safe waters and rock pools and caves to explore. There are many lovely easy walks in and around the village such as the path through the old tunnels that hug the coast leading to the pub at Wiseman's Bridge or follow the leafy route to the Old Iron Works at Stepaside. From the Wiseman's Bridge you can carry on further to The National Trust Colby Gardens near Amroth which is well worth the extra effort with its beautiful Manor House, sumptious food served in the tea rooms and magnificent display of trees and plants.
There are many shops, pubs and restaurants in the village catering for all tastes and within close proximity of one another.
Throughout the year, Saundersfoot plays host to many organised events such as the annual St David's Food and Craft festival, St Nicholas Christmas Market and the famous New Year's Day Swim (calendar of events).
