Pembrokeshire Coast Path Directory
The stunning Pembrokeshire coast
Wales' first long-distance route, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path covers 186 miles. Most of the route is within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The Coast Path follows the county's magnificent coastline from Amroth in the south to St Dogmaels in the north. Much of the route is at cliff-top level, providing superb views of the sea, beaches and offshore islands with their wealth of marine and bird life. Elsewhere it follows gentler shorelines, including the outer reaches of the Milford Haven estuary, one of the finest natural harbours in the world. The entire route represents an impressive physical challenge to the walker, including 35,000 feet of ascent and descent, whilst for those who prefer something a little less demanding, it offers a tremendous variety for shorter day walks.
