Walking the UK’s only coastal National Park. Designated one of the top ten coastal walks in the world
Nearly 20 years ago the Pembrokeshire Coast Path became our first walking holiday product; we have been walking it ever since. It is a walk we never tire of, regardless of season or weather, such is its appeal, with a surprise around every headland.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is regarded as one of the world’s greatest trails. In 2011 National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire the second best coastal destination in the world. The unique natural beauty of the landscape has made it the only stretch of coastline in Britain designated a National Park.
Walking in Pembrokeshire is Remarkably Varied
The Pembrokeshire coastal walk is remarkably varied. You will walk along Wales’ beautiful white beaches, through mystical Arthurian coves, along breezy cliff tops, in early summer a stunning blaze of wildflowers colours. You see colonies of seabirds nesting along the cliffs face and offshore islands, and seal, porpoises and dolphin can be spotted swimming in azure coloured bays. And there is the endless expanse of sea filling your view with whatever colour or mood it chooses for the day.
On your walk you’ll:
- Pass by innumerable Celtic promontory forts
- Saunter through 15 unspoilt harbour villages
- Gaze in wonder at St David’s Cathedral in Britain’s smallest city – the size of a large village
- Explore Norman and Medieval castles in Tenby, Manorbier and Pembroke
A Walk Steeped in Celtic History
Walking the Pembrokeshire coast you discover an area alive with Celtic history:
- Druids dragged the bluestones of Stonehenge from the Preseli Hills, near St David’s. St Patrick lived here, and sailed from here to Ireland in the 5th century to establish his church.
- In the early medieval period Henry Tudor returned to land at Milford Have in 1485 to regain the crown as Henry VII.
