Little Haven is on the west coast of Pembrokeshire at the southern end of St Bride's Bay. A quaint old fishing village with plenty of charm and character, it has been designated a conservation area by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
The village, which was once a sea port exporting locally mined coal, is now a delightful retreat. With a couple of shops and a couple of pubs, it is not commercialised but is very popular with families in the summer. The bistro and a café offer a good choice of food.
The Boathouse Gallery has original watercolours and prints by Shirley Norman along with traditional lobster pots, woodcarvings and other crafts. Little Haven Pottery sells decorated stoneware pottery in blue, white and green and a wide range of crafts.
The beach is popular with divers and for boating of all kinds. There is a slipway for boats, which can also be used by disabled visitors. However, this must be kept clear at all times, as it is also the lifeboat slipway. At low tide you can walk round to a wide bay called The Settlands and on round to Broad Haven if the tide is right out. Dogs are allowed on part of the beach all year round.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path passes through the village. Heading south, a moderate walk takes you to the pretty little cove at St Bride's Haven. The path north takes you to Druidston Haven, then on to Nolton Haven and Newgale. This is one of the tamer parts of The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park but spectacular nonetheless.
The path to The Point is pushchair or wheelchair friendly and provides a good viewpoint. There is a small beach on the south side of The Point called ‘The Sheep Wash’ which was used in the past to dip sheep.
