Solva’s history as a port stretches back to at least the 14th century. It is referred to by the antiquary George Owen in 1603. By 1811 there were 36 ships using the port with nine warehouses for them in the village.
In the nineteenth century there were approximately 30 registered merchant ships in Solva. However, over time, maritime trade was replaced by tourism, the harbor is now a popular boating center. The local cliffs are popular with hikers, and the Cambrian coastal formations are of interest to both amateur and professional geologists.
