Harry Potter Magic Remains

Last night I watched the 50 most brilliant Harry Potter moments.

It is magical to learn that the scene of which was filmed on our home turf in Pembrokeshire at Freshwater West beach has excelled in greatness coming within the top five most brilliant Harry Potter moments.

I watched the clip in awe last night as I recognised every inch of the fabulous beach and felt so proud to know I have made many footprints and my dog many paw prints in that very sand!

Freshwater West beach features in The Deathly Hallows (part 1) and plays the backdrop for the scene in which sadly, the adorable little elf Dobby dies. But if anything, this sad moment only emphasizes the significance of the role the beach played at such an iconic moment in the film.

I love Freshwater West beach , it has a long stretch of sand, laced by pebbles and loads of rocks to climb as well as being a haven for surfers all year round.

Pembrokeshire is renowned for it's fabulous beaches and coastline and if you have never visited before it is definitely time to arrange a holiday! I don't even mean in the height of the summer holidays, in fact wandering the beaches arm in arm when there is nobody else around is the best time - first thing in the morning or last thing at night.

Activity Wales can help to arrange an overnight stay, weekend break or long holiday to Pembrokeshire, where you can visit the very beach that has been recognised for it's outstanding beauty, not in just Harry Potter but the Robin Hood epic too.

Whilst you are visiting Freshwater West you can try a spot of Surfing, the waves are incredible.

Well done Freshwater West and Pembrokeshire - what a gem!
