St Davids Lifeboat station at St JustiniansSt Justinians

In a stunning setting looking out towards Ramsey Island is the Lifeboat Station built in 1869 which has been involved in many heroic rescues.

St Justinian was a friend and confessor of St David. Legend has it that while on Ramsey Island he was beheaded by his own disciples, but picked up his own head and walked across Ramsey Sound to the mainland.

Today boats depart from here for trips around Ramsey island from Easter to the end of October (weather permitting) and for landings on the Island itself.

St Justinians can be accessed by road if you take the Porthclais road and turn right on the outskirts of St Davids and drive for 3 miles. The coast path also passes through St Justinians.
