Jump out of your boat and into a car!
The Marina offers over 200 miles of coast line drift by with many attractions to visit such as Pembroke Castle, Hazelbeach and Skomer Island, but there’s even more attractions and activities to enjoy up in the North of Wales.
Leave your boat hitched up at one of many docks along the Waterway, jump in a rental car and explore a mythical region of mountains, forests and rivers. There are so many things to do in North Wales that you might well forget that you left your boat in the South!
These are just a handful of the activities on offer in the North of the country:

Zip World Fforest

Take a load off after a long day of exploring the Waterway…
There are few better ways of spending a summer’s evening than lounging by the water with a few drinks and that’s exactly what these pubs offers.
Over 200 miles of coastline lines the Milford Haven Waterway, a thoroughly rugged Welsh landscape that begs to be explored. One can easily while away a week drifting along the river and out into the sea, but you’d be remiss not to drop into one of these excellent pubs along the way.
The Griffin Pub
Consistently voted as one of the very best pubs in the area, The Griffin Pub is a perfect stop off for those visiting the Milford Haven area. The current incarnation of the pub is run by husband and wife team, Sian and Simon Vickers.
Both owners have roots in the area (with Sian’s family having run the pub in years gone by) when the couple saw that the beloved drinking hole was up for sale they leapt at the chance to run the place themselves. After being presented with a box of fresh fish by a local fisherman, Simon wowed locals with his cooking and used the success of that night to steer The Griffin in a new culinary direction.
