Attraction details
Owner description: The Welsh coastline has many contrasts and really does offer something for everyone. From cliff top strolls to estuarine wanders, picturesque fishing villages to vibrant cities, industrial heritage to unconquered castles, desolate windswept beaches to bustling seasides. The Wales Coast Path not only takes you through the Welsh landscape, it takes you through its heritage and its communities.The Pembrokeshire section is home to the iconic and world-class landscape of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and wildlife rich islands. The Path (which has National Trail status here) passes through some of Britain's most spectacular and breathtaking scenery, including 58 beaches and 14 harbours and the UK's smallest city - St Davids.

We booked our trip through Celtic Trails. It is possible to do this on your own, but Celtic Trails made it so much easier and more enjoyable for us. We traveled from California so arranging B&Bs, taxis, and luggage transfers, is difficult. Celtic Trails sent us detailed information on each day's walk and coordinated everything.

I have done the Camino de Santiago and my husband and his friends did the Wainwright Trail in Northern England, but this was a very special walk. The vistas of the coast changed each day as we ventured farther north. It was challenging but our party of 4 who are in our 60s and 70s were able to complete the walk without any problems. We started in Sandy Haven (near Milford Haven) and concluded in St. Dogmaels approximately 110 miles later. Living in California, we have a beautiful and long coastline. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path did not disappoint us at all. It was truly an awesome experience that we will always remember.

Walk the Pembrokeshire Coastal path from anywhere, and the isolation is staggering. Trek to the top of Carn Llidi on St Davids Head for 360 deg. Panoramic views northwards toward Strumbles & Cardigan Bay and see the whole of Ramsey Island. Looking to the seaward side of the climb you will see the outline of a very early 'Field system' built by the first Farmers!

Approaching St Davids Head itself, you will pass an early Bronze Age burial Chamber; a Capstone supported by three Stone Pillars. You will cross over an ancient 'revetment' barrier of tumbled smaller stones which were built as a defence against a small community that built individual circular houses beyond it, and if you 'get your eye in' you will discern the eight or so remains of these circular buildings within the tumble of rough grass and other stones. Quite magical!!

Plenty of wildlife, there are semi wild ponies, and on warm days, be careful of the Adder snakes! You will also see the rare 'Chough' crows with red beaks & Legs!!

Take a stroll along this coastal path and you will not be disappointed. Watch the scenery unfold before your eyes - from sea and beach to rocks to fields to overgrown blackberry bushes to streams and back to the beach - as you wander along his well-marked path. I only wish I had discovered it sooner and taken more time to meander!

Amazing views, absolutely stunning. We walked from St David’s to St Nons, through to St Justiniens, fabulous walk starting with the little chapel and Well. A steady walk back via the road to St David’s. Day 2 we went from St David’s to Whitesands beach and St Davids Head, again fabulous! The beach is beautiful, absolutely outstanding on this sunny day. Great to walk to St David’s Head and look back at the views. Looking forward to more walks tomorrow.
