Hike the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path covers the entire length of the only Coastline National Park in the UK. It stretches over 180 miles of the southwest Wales coastline, from Amroth in the south to St Dogmaels in the north.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path embraces the land's diversity by revealing almost every kind of maritime landscape on the way. At every step, you are with the restless ocean, around every corner a surprise emerges from this ruptured coastline of explosive blowholes, cathedral like rock arches, hidden sea caves, windswept dunes and sheltered glacial estuaries. As the miles pass by so does history itself as you encounter ancient burial chambers, windswept castle ramparts and chains of imposing Napoleonic forts. You discover the remains of a unique and proud industrial past preserved in the old quays, mines, and quarries along the route. Stay in small towns and villages along the way.
