The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is the most amazing place to walk. In the last two years we've had the opportunity to explore just a tiny part of the coast path, both around St Davids and Whitesands. The views from walking above Whitesands are just amazing with the cliffs and isles out along this part of the coastline. Good walking boots are an essential as, though this part of the path is very well maintained, there are narrow areas and it would be easy to turn an ankle wearing trainers, sandals.
The cliff tops are decorated by beautiful coastal flowers and plants, which delicately scent the air.
Pembrokeshire is the only coastal national park in Britain and if you were to do the entire path it would take you along 186 miles/ 299 km of stunning clifftop scenery with beaches very similar to those in quieter parts of Cornwall. If you were to do the whole thing it would take you 12 or 13 days, but it is easy to break it into segments and do it over several visits. Some of the sights you might see, depending on the time of year, include wild flowers, dolphins, seals, Norman castles and ancient churches, including the remarkable St. Govan's chapel. This minature 13th century chapel is wedged into a tiny chapel on a steep cliff and is definitely worth a visit if you have an interest in ancient sites. There is some spectacular scenery in the area, although it is very close to a military camp.
Anyway, that was another slight digression, as we visited the chapel on another day. The walk we did was around 12 miles and took us from Bosherton Lily ponds (a large area of ponds, which are more like lakes which if you time it right will be full of Monet style lilies) back to Lydstep. The walk was stunning, taking in some fabulous beaches, including Barafundle bay, an award winning site, Broadhaven South, Little Haven and Manorbier. As well as beaches there are some amazing limestone areas, castles a few stop off points with tea houses or friendly pubs, wild ponies and blowholes. The walk was tiring, it was an unseasonably warm day and there were far too many ups and downs for my liking, unsurprisingly I suppose for a cliff top walk but I'd definitely do it again.
its a world class walk!!!! you have to do it! its about 126 mile walk but not in one day! its in the UK's only national coastal park so its unique. you can see seals and many birds ie puffins so its awesome!!!
