The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stretches from the town of Cardigan in the north to Pendine in the south. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path skirts the rugged coastline offering fabulous views, glorious beaches and an abundance of wildlife along the way. | As its name suggests the Pembrokeshire Coast Path section of the Wales Coast Path extends from one end of the county of Pembrokeshire to the other. | The first section of the path from Cemaes Head to Newport Bay is one of the most spectacular and the trail stays high on the cliff top for most of the section enabling fantastic views on a clear day. | Leaving Newport we head off on the next section to St David's (approx 50 miles), taking the path over Dinas Head - that separates Newport Bay from Fishguard Bay. Fishguard, or to be more exact the village of Goodwick nearby is the home port for the Ferry service to Ireland. | From Fishguard the path heads out via Carregwasted Point, Strumble Head, Abercastle and Abereiddy, culminating in the cliff top location of St David's Head, overlooking St George's Channel and the beautiful Whitesands Bay. Whitesands Bay is a sandy beach facing westward making it popular with surfers. Continuing round the peninsula the path leads to Ramsey Sound with Ramsey Island across the treacherous waters. The next section is St Brides Bay from Ramsey to the Dale peninsula and St Anne’s Head. There are several towns and resorts en route including Solva, Newgale, Nolton Haven, Broad Haven and Little Haven. | The walk continues through St Bride’s village and on to the Marloes peninsula with views of Skomer and Skokholm Islands. Skomer Island is the most important seabird-breeding site in southern Britain and the waters around the Island are a Marine Nature Reserve harbouring one of the largest colonies of grey seals in Wales. This section finishes the Dale peninsula at St Anne’s Head from where we start the next section of the Path....... the Milford Haven.| Milford Haven is the deep gash on the map of Wales that forms the estuary of the Carew, Cresswell, and the two Cleddau Rivers. It makes what would have been a two mile walk from St Annes head to Angle become a massive hike around the banks of the inlet through St Ishmaels, Sandy Haven, Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Pembroke itself, and Angle Bay.| Pembroke is renowned for one of the most magnificent castles in Wales that dominates this walled town with its spectacular location. Each year the Castle and town are host to many productions, medieval banquets, military tattoos and themed re-creations of Pembroke's history by the Sealed Knot Society. | The last leg of the Coastal Path takes us from Angle to Amroth and the border with Carmarthenshire. This final section of the Pembroke Coastal path starts at the small village of Angle at the tip of the lower of the two peninsulas forming the entrance to Milford Haven. | The path soon reaches the sandy beaches of Freshwater West before we reach the Stack Rocks and the Green Bridge of Wales, possibly the most spectacular sites on the Pembroke Coastal Path. Close to St Govan’s Headland we find St Govan's Chapel - a perfect example of early Christian monastic life, built in an isolated location - almost part of the cliff face. | This rather barren landscape quickly changes to lush sheltered leafy valleys in nearby Bosherton, before again returning to the usual cliff top scenery and the dramatic jagged rocks at Stackpole Headland. Continuing via Manorbier, Lydstep and Pennaly we arrive at the harbour town and holiday resort of Tenby, before reaching Amroth and end of this section of the All Wales Path. | This is Britain's only truly coastal national park. It's a spectacular landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills, and a place of sanctuary for wildlife. People belong here, too. They have shaped the landscape over the centuries, leaving their mark in tombs and castles, crosses and cottages, quarries and quays. Today this is a living, working landscape where people and nature co-exist. The National Park Authority looks after it, helps the public to enjoy and understand it, and works with local communities towards a sustainable future.
