Porthclais (also known as Porth Clais) is a small sheltered inlet harbour near St Davids, Pembrokeshire, Wales, in the community of St Davids and the Cathedral Close.
Porthclais harbour was built in the 12th century, importing coal and timber. The entire harbour is within the St David's Peninsula Site of Special Scientific Interest. Porthclais is still used as a small port by local fishermen and recreational sailors. The largely intact old harbour wall may have been built by the Romans, and the harbour was mentioned in the mediaeval Mabinogion. The earliest recorded date of trade through the port is 1385.

Access off the costal path and the St David's Celtic and costal cruiser buses running in the summer season. A little coffee shop and parking too. A spot for soaking up more history this area has to offer

Lovely scenery, nice little coffee shop sells ice-cream too! Lots of benches for picnics. Sheltered out of the wind on lost days.
