Walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is as varied as it is uniquely beautiful. Nearly 200 miles long, enjoy exhilarating walking, through carpets of coastal wildflowers, on coastal cliff tops, go barefoot over secluded sandy beaches. Along stunning wild stretches of coast you see wildlife, seals, dolphins, seabirds you will never have seen before, and centuries of fascinating history accompany you along your walking holiday

Walking in Pembrokeshire is Remarkably Varied

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is regarded as one of the world’s Great walking trails. National Geographic ranked it second in the world’s top ten long-distance paths. The natural beauty of the landscape has made it the only stretch of coastline in the UK designated a National Park.

The Pembrokeshire Coast is predominantly a coastline of lovely peninsulas, as infinitely long as it is changeable, with innumerable folds and inlets enticing you to magical hidden sandy bays and wild rocky coves, only seen on foot. You visit tiny hidden fishing harbours like Little Haven and Porthgain, explore colourful medieval harbour towns, Tenby, Fishguard and St David’s, Britain’s smallest ‘city’ with it’s wonderful 12th century cathedral, the site 6th century monastery founded Wales’s patron saint, and formidable Norman coastal castles at Manorbier and Pembroke.

20 years ago the Pembrokeshire Coast Path became Celtic Trails’ first walking holiday. We have been providing high quality walking holidays on it ever since and with family born and raised there, our local knowledge is second to none.

For walkers who enjoy some solitude and want to exercise their senses and intellect as well as their muscles and lungs this is a walking holiday to include in their ‘must do’ trails.
