Here, standing Prominent in front of the beach is Church Rock.
The Coastal views are breathtaking all around. 

 

St Govan,s Chapel-Pembrokeshire.

St Govan,s Chapel is nestled amongst
the rocks, very picturesque and is close
to a car park.

It has a  flight of steps to go down, not for the weak hearted going back up!!!

It is said the number of steps counted are never the same as going down as going back up!!!

The Chapel is dedicated to St Govan, an Irish Abbot of the Sixth Century.

According to Legend he escaped from Pirates by landing here and hiding in a crack in the rocks which miraculously opened to conceal him.

The views along the coast are sensational.
