Many coast path walkers mistakenly bypass this section, thinking it’s too built up. It may be different in character to the wilder parts of the Coast Path but it’s surprisingly fascinating, with plenty of interest en-route. On the plus side there aren’t any serious gradients.
The stage through Pembroke Dock takes in the old naval dockyard and the Maretllo Tower built to defend it and then onto the Cleddau Bridge for some amazing views of the estuary; east to Burton and Lawrenny and west to Milford Haven.
Back on the edge of the water the path heads through Neyland and Llandstadwell before reaching Milford Haven and its marina.
Refreshments : Plenty of choice in Pembroke, Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven. Cafe at Neyland marina and a pub at Llanstadwell.
Attractions en-route : Pembroke Castle. Pembroke Dock Martello Tower. Milford Haven museum & marina.
