Its well worth the effort to start at Porth clais and walk along the coast path to St Non's. The view across the coast with the little Chapel is breath taking. A beautiful place to sit and while away a quite hour.

One of the most peaceful places I have ever been - the chapel has a serene atmosphere. St David's can be very busy but you can get away from it all here. With the sea raging nearby on a windy day this can be a...More

Lovely quaint little place with an amazing view of the coast and plenty of benches to sit down and enjoy the view whilst eating your packed lunch.

I'm not religious, but every time we visit St Davids, we pay the chapel a visit. It really is a very special place. Such a feeling of tranquility and calm. A sense of stillness, which is quite something when life generally goes at such a...More

Walked past this as part of a circular walk around part of the coastal path. Started at St David's square and this is the first stop at the coast. Can be accessed without walking footware if required. The natural spring is weird the way it...More

Not entirely sure what there is to get excited about... Formed part of a great coastal walk from St David's, but not worth a visit in it's own right.

This is, according to legend, the birthplace of St David. Well of the beaten track, down a narrow cou ntry lane, there's not a great deal to see, but it's the significance of the place that makes it well worth visiting.

Passed by with indifference by many visitors going for walks or climbing on the dramatic sea cliffs beyond this spot, St. Non spoke to me demanding I stay and give her some time. The legend of St. David's sainted mother is the theme for this...More

A beautiful and spiritual place. We make a visit every St Davids Day but this was extra. My husband ventured down the slippery path to the beach where there are caves. Not to be attempted by children and only if you are very sure-footed.
