Pembrokeshire Coast Path - National Trail image

 The Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail twists and turns its way through 186 miles of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in Britain.

From St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.

Lying almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park —Britain’s only coastal national park – the trail displays an array of coastal flowers and bird life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present.

In its entirety the Coast Path represents a formidable physical challenge - its 35,000 feet of ascent and descent is said to be equivalent to climbing Everest — yet it can also be enjoyed in shorter sections, accessible to people of all ages and abilities, with the small coastal villages strung out along its length offering welcome breaks and added enjoyment.

Both the Wales Coast Path [WCP](opened 5th May 2012) and the International Appalachian Trail [IAT](since October 2010) follow the route of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path through Pembrokeshire.

The WCP website addresses are www.walescoastpath.gov.uk and www.llwybrarfordircymru.gov.uk The IAT website address is www.iat-sia.com
