YHA St Davids

Llaethdy, Whitesands, St David's, Pembrokeshire SA62 6PR


For non-stop activity in breathtaking surroundings, YHA St Davids takes some beating. This gorgeous corner of the Pembrokeshire coast is perfect for watersports fans, and the famous cathedral is only a couple of miles walk away. Our converted farmhouse is a rural retreat, with a cosy lounge area for socialising and two self-catering kitchens to prepare your own food.

With Blue Flag beach Whitesands Bay nearby, you don’t have to go far to be in the sea. Activity groups and adventurous school trips can learn how to ride the waves at Whitesands Surf School. Big adventurers might want to try TYF Adventure for a day of coasteering or kayaking.

If you’re a wildlife lover, you’re spoilt for choice as the hostel is surrounded by an idyllic landscape. Walking groups can take on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – just ten minutes away from us – and dolphins and seals visit the area at certain times of year. Whether you’re a climber, cyclist or just want to enjoy attractions like the Bishop’s Palace and St David’s Cathedral, we make a relaxed base.
