If you drive up the Pier Road and follow it to the very end, you will find a wonderful little picnic spot known as Hobbs Point observation point. There aren’t any facilities like toilets or a café there, the only thing you will find is the best view of Pembroke Dock, and if you have a good enough camera or telescope, you can even see Milford Haven.
