The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of Britain’s National Trails. There are 15 in England and Wales and they represent the 15 best walking trails. There are three national trails in Wales, The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Offa's Dyke and Glyndwr's Way.
What makes the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so interesting is the variety of landscapes you pass through on your way along it, ranging from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, volcanic headlands and flooded glacial valleys.
There are also some remarkably quaint towns and villages to explore, rest, refresh and recuperate in; essential for getting your breath back after experiencing some of those views!
