Skokholm (Welsh: Ynys Sgogwm) is an island 2.5 miles (4.0 km) off the coast of south west Pembrokeshire in Wales, lying south of the neighbouring island of Skomer. The whole island is a Site of Special Scientific Interest as is Skomer. The surrounding waters are a marine reserve and all are part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It is the fourth largest of Wales’ offshore islands.

Gateholm is a small tidal island off the south west coast of Pembrokeshire in the south west side of Wales, in the west of the UK, and about 13km west of the port of Milford Haven. It is known for its Romano-British remains.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (Welsh: Parc Cenedlaethol Arfordir Penfro) is a national park along the Pembrokeshire coast in west Wales.

It was established as a National Park in 1952, and is the only one in the United Kingdom to have been designated primarily because of its spectacular coastline. It is one of three National Parks in Wales, the others being the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog) and Snowdonia (Eryri).
