Walking in Pembrokeshire

With its breathtaking views and unspoilt landscape the Pembrokeshire National Park Coastal Trail is a popular attraction for walkers, as it winds its way 186 miles (299km) from St Dogmaels near Cardigan in the North to Amroth, near Tenby in the South. In fact the path has recently been declared in the “third best walk in the World” by the National Geographic publication.  It was the only path in Britain on the list and was rated alongside the Inca Trail and Mount Kilimanjaro. For more on this article, click here.

From April 2012, Wales will be the only country in the UK with a completely walkable coastline.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is one of the smallest National Parks, and only Coastal National Park in England and Wales. The path varies from high cliffs to long open beaches, and sheltered coves and harbours to natural salt flats and sand dunes.

The Park also includes several offshore islands, the largest of which are Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey, Grasholm and Caldey. These are internationally important for their seabird and seal populations. Boat Trips to the Islands are very popular during the summer season.

A number of Pembrokeshires beaches have achieved the distinction of being awarded the prestigious " Blue Flag " for environmental quality. In complete contrast are the tranquil waters of the Milford Haven Waterway, the heavily wooded slopes of the Gwaun Valley and the windswept expanse of the Preseli Hills.

Pembrokeshire also has 3 of Visit Wales’ must see Islands :  Skomer, Caldey and Ramsey.

Skomer is a must if you’re after wildlife. It is in abundance here with 120,000 pairs of Manx Shearwaters, 10,000 pairs of guillemot and 6,000 pairs of puffins. The best time to visit here is spring with the puffin chicks and the bluebells setting the island even more alive.  You can take boat trips around the island or spend the day walking around it, within arm’s reach of the puffins.

Caldey Island has beautiful beaches and views topped off with a monastery. The monastery is still home to monks who live and work there. Trips to this island operate from Tenby.

Ramsey Island is also popular for bird watchers as it is home to the rare chough and peregrine.You can also spend the day walking around the island or take a boat trip and enjoy it from the shore.

Walking leaflets have been produced as part of the Pembrokeshire Greenways initiative to help you access the countryside. All of the leaflets contain details of how to access the walks by bus or train so you can leave the car at home! Click here for more information.
