The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

The best long distance trail the UK can offer

Within almost all of Pembrokeshire's Coast National Park, the trail shows an immense variety of wildlife and greenery. Along with it's stunning views, a long lineage of history has been left behind by our ancestors ready for you to discover.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a symbol of the true beauty of Wales and the wildlife that surrounds it. Each part of it gives off a different impression and features a wide variety of towns and villages to explore. Be sure to take a trip around the coast path on your visit to Pembrokeshire.

When the Pembrokeshire National Coast Park was formed in 1952, Welsh naturalist Ronald Lockley surveyed the coast for a suitable route for members of the public to enjoy. With a good part of the original coast path land owned by private hands, negotations were made to secure a reliable path across the coastline for everyone to relish. The full completion of the coast path took 17 years, and was finally opened by Wynford Vaughan-Thomas in 1970 with a staggering 180 miles of distance. Today, the footpath has been extended beyond the original distance to its current length, 186 miles.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

Every step of the way is another path forward to a new area, each village is different and the landscape encompassing them make the coast path truly stunning. Going up and down the coast path will take you on a trip to locations such as St Davids, with it's grand cathedral, a sacred sanctuary for pilgrims. Along the path you'll also come across stunning beaches such as Whitesands, a truly peaceful place to relax and enjoy away from the busy bustle of life.
