Once a pair of coal-mining and fishing villages, Broad Haven and Little Haven began to develop as seaside resorts in Victorian times.
Little Haven was the first to be developed, but is has remained largely contained within its narrow valley and is now a picturesque resort. Although a late starter, Broad Haven has expanded dramatically in recent years and is now the larger village. Little Haven has a very active history society which stages regular exhibitions relating to the history of the village and the nearby airfield at Talbenny.
