Let us help you plan your route, and choose from a variety of suitable accommodation.

A 186-mile trail following the Pembrokeshire Coastline from St. Dogmaels to Amroth, most of which forms part of the National Park, the only one of its kind in Britain. From spectacular cliff tops to hidden coves, golden sandy beaches to serpentine estuaries, The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is truly a sight for sore eyes.

After a difficult start, the cliffs even out as you head from Newport towards Fishguard and the grazing country beyond, with Horses, cattle and sheep. There’s a variety of stone from volcanic rocks to red sandstone, each year the coastline here suffers from erosion.

From Whitesands to Solva is accommodated by the towns, bus services and retail outfits of St. David’s and Solva itself. Along the route it is worth popping along to visit Pembroke Castle, and Barafundle beach, one of the highest rated beaches in the world.

Plenty of coastal flowers and birds can be spotted en route, including gannets, and the tell tale fin of the porpoise hunting the local fish population. Further sights to keep an eye out for include the rugged islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm, the graceful, part wooded retreat of Milford Haven waterway and the Lily Ponds at Bosherston.

The trail ends close to the popular tourist destination, Tenby famed for its gloriously golden sands.
