This magnificent trail between the villages of St Dogmael's in the north and Amroth in the south follows the coastline of the Pembrokeshire National Park through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain. For much of the time the path keeps to the clifftops, providing superb views of the cliffs, beaches and offshore stacks and islands with their abundant birdlife. Each turn in the path reveals something different - a little harbour, an attractive village, a Neolithic cromlech, Bronze Age standing stones, Iron Age promontory forts, a church or chapel of the Celtic saints and their followers or a castle built by Norman invaders.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path begins at the village of St Dogmael 's near Cardigan. From here to the enchanting little city of St Davids , the trail passes through some of the wildest and most ruggedly beautiful parts of the National Park. Highlights of this section of the coast path include the Witches' Cauldron, a magnificent rocky bay; the historic little town of Newport with its Norman castle; the picturesque old harbour of Lower Fishguard; the pretty little fishing villages of Porthgain and Abercastle; Carreg Sampson, one of the finest cromlechs in Pembrokeshire; the golden sands of Whitesands Bay, where legend relates St Patrick set sail for Ireland; the little harbour of Porthclais, where St David was baptised; the ruined chapel of St Non's and the little city of St Davids with its glorious medieval cathedral and Bishop's Palace.

From St Davids the trail follows the wide sweep of St Brides Bay with its beautiful beaches to the picturesque village of Little Haven with its narrow lanes cottages, old inns and tiny bay, and then continues around the Marloes and Dale Peninsulas to the busy port of Milford Haven , one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Highlights of this section of the coast path include the superb beach of Newgale Sands; the sheltered bay of Martins Haven, the embarkation point for Skomer and Skokholm islands; Marloes Sands with its multi-coloured cliffs; the little chapel at St Anns Head; the attractive fishing villages of Solva, Marloes and Dale; the gothic folly at Monk Haven; and the impressive Victorian fort at Dale Haven.

We also offer the Pembrokeshire Coast Path as a trail running holiday, for those eager to enjoy this trail at speed. Click here to find out more.

The southern section of the coast path from Milford Haven to Amroth takes in some of Pembrokeshire's most beautiful beaches such as those at Freshwater West, Broad Haven South, Barafundle Bay and Freshwater East, as well as some of its most magnificent cliff scenery, such as the spectacular limestone cliffs, stacks and arches of the Castlemartin Peninsula . Pembroke Castle, with its vast keep, which provides commanding views in all directions; the attractive village of Angle, with its historic church, Fishermen's Chapel, dovecote and medieval tower-house; the unique thatched seaweed-drying hut above Little Furzenip; the tiny, ancient chapel built into the rocks at St Govan's Head; the tiny harbour at Stackpole Quay; prehistoric remains including ron Age hill forts and Neolithic Cromlechs; the beautiful lily pools at Bosherton; the great Norman castle at Manorbier; and the ancient walled town of Tenby with its picturesque harbour are just some of the highlights.

Holiday Highlights

  • Admiring the contrast between the wild and rugged coastline near St Dogmael’s, the industrial landscape near Milford Haven and the historically rich area near Pembroke.

Start and Finish St Dogmael's to St Davids
Availability 2nd January to 24th December

The north section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path begins in St Dogmaels and continues along the wonderful coastline and cliffs to the charming Cathedral city of St Davids. The trail takes in a wealth of history, wildlife and wild scenery as it winds its way along the south-west Coast of Wales through a series of pretty villages and beaches.

St Dogmaels, where the remains of the 12th Century St Dogmaels abbey stand, marks the beginning of the trail, passing over the sandy dunes of Poppit Sands before it reaches Cemaes Head, the most northerly stretch of cliffs in Pembrokeshire. From here, there are fantastic views out to sea with Cardigan Island in the distance and horses grazing the land to conserve the habitats of native wildlife, including the rare Chough.

At Ceibwr bay, the scenery becomes more remote as the rocks make dramatic caves and jagged formations. At Pwll-y-Wrach, a collapsed cave has created a spectacular blowhole known as ‘The Witches Cauldron,’ which is particularly breath taking when the waves crash through it after poor weather.

The trail soon reaches the lovely town of Fishguard, where a series of pretty cottages perch alongside the harbour. On the tranquil heights of Strumble Head, there are wonderful views to Ireland and Cardigan Bay and the waters below offer the perfect opportunity to spot dolphins and porpoises.

The shingle beach of Aber Mawr leads to Abereiddy, where a flooded slate quarry has formed a spectacular ‘Blue Lagoon’ on the north side of the beach. From here, the trail becomes even more rugged and remote until it reaches the open, sandy beach of Whitesands Bay.

The final stretch of the trail rounds St Davids Head where there are views over Whitesands Bay and Ramsey Island. Here, you may see Gannets diving for fish off-shore, or Peregrine Falcons leaving the high cliffs. As you arrive in the tiny city of St Davids, there is a wealth of seaside shops to explore before concluding the north section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in the magnificent St. Davids Cathedral.

Holiday Highlights

  • Admiring the dramatic, rugged geology of the coastline, including The Witches Cauldron and the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy.
  • Spotting Grey Seals, Dolphins and Porpoises from the high cliff tops of Pembrokeshire, including Cemaes Head, Strumble Head and St Davids Head.
  • Exploring the quaint little towns of St Dogmaels, Fishguard and St Davids.

Total Distance 66 miles (106 km)
Start and Finish Milford Haven to Amroth
Availability 2nd January to 24th December

The south section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path starts in the old Royal Navy Dockyard of Milford Haven and continues through a series of contrasting scenery and terrain to the end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in Amroth.

From Milford Haven, the trail passes around the north side of the Pembroke River, taking in the area’s industrial history as it passes oil tankers and oil refineries. Soon, the trail enters Pembroke Dock along the Cleddau Bridge, where there are views of the many boats docked below. Here, the Dock’s naval history has left some fascinating buildings, including The Martello Tower, now a museum that spans a military history of over 200 years.

Heading uphill and out of the dockyard, the trail enters the town of Pembroke, where the traces of old Norman walls and the impressive Pembroke Castle create a real commanding presence. As the trail leaves this medieval gem, the route revisits its industrial past again as it passes Pembroke power station and further examples of prominent oil refineries, before continuing along the exposed East Angle Bay, where sand and mud flats attract various seabirds and coastal wildlife.

The charming village of Angle has a rich history offering much to explore, including St Mary’s church and the unusual Fishermen’s Chapel. From here, the terrain takes an undulating route around the Angle Peninsula, visiting the excellent beach of Freshwater West, where you can watch the many surfers and admire the thatched hut for drying seaweed.

The scenery once again becomes more wild and dramatic as the trail passes incredible rock formations such as The Green Bridge of Wales, a spectacular natural arch that can be viewed from a viewing platform. Providing that the Castlemartin firing range is open, the trail crosses the MOD artillery range and arrives in Bosherston, famed for its limestone cliffs and the Bosherston Lily Ponds where you may spot a variety of bird, plant life and even Otters.

The final section of the trail leaves Manorbier with its exquisite castle perched on the edge of the beach and passes through the colourful town of Tenby on route to Amroth, where you can glimpse the stumps of the Petrified Forest on its extensive sandy beach. This wonderful seaside town provides a delightful finale to the south section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Holiday Highlights

  • Taking a break on the wonderful beaches of Broad Haven and Barafundle, a secluded bay that can only be reached on foot.
  • Experiencing the contrasting landscapes from the industrial areas near Milford Haven to the dramatic scenery on the approach to Amroth.
  • Visiting many sites of historical interest, including Pembroke Castle and Manorbier Castle.

Total Distance 26 miles (42 km)
Start and Finish Porthgain to Newgale (St David's single centre)
Availability 2nd January to 24th December

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path Taster Break - Northern Section is a single centre holiday that follows twenty six miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from the old harbour of Porthgain to the expanse of golden sand at Newgale, returning each evening to enjoy the fabulous atmosphere in Britain’s smallest city, St Davids.

Arriving in St Davids, the magnificent Cathedral and neighbouring Bishop’s Palace create an imposing image against the pretty streets and charming shops of the city. Here, you will enjoy comfortable accommodation in interesting surroundings, close to the wild cliff tops of the coastal path.

Taking our pre-arranged transfers, you will travel a short distance from St Davids to Porthgain, where you will begin your walk along the dramatic cliff tops. This rugged section of the trail feels particularly remote on the way to Whitesands Bay, where there is a fine beach, overlooked by St Davids Head and surrounded by dramatic hills.

Passing along high cliffs with views towards the RSPB’s Ramsey Island, the trail visits Porthclais, a small fishing port whose harbour served St Davids and brought saints, discliples and pilgrims to the shores of the south-west coast of Wales. The protective harbour wall, built by the Romans, is testament to the long history of the harbour and according to legend, St David was baptised in Porthclais.

Continuing along the high level cliffs, the trail passes the delightful 13th Century chapel at St Non’s Bay, where St David is said to have been born. St Non’s Bay is named after St David’s mother and offers attractive views over the surrounding coast with wildflowers in abundance through the summer and a variety of seabirds to admire.

The final stretch of the walk sees the trail pass through Solva, where there is a beautiful harbour filled with fishing and pleasure vessels, before arriving in Newgale. Here, the long, flat beach provides a lovely welcome on completion of your walk, before you return to St Davids for a final night of relaxation in comfortable guesthouse accommodation.

Holiday Highlights

  • Exploring the areas associated with St David, including the stunning St David’s Cathedral, his birthplace at St Non’s Bay and the site of his baptism in Porth Clais.
  • Soaking up the atmosphere in the delightful small city of St Davids, where you will be based throughout this short break.
