The dramatic Pembrokeshire coast is Britain’s only coastal National Park and includes one of the UK’s four Marine Nature Reserves.

Starting at St Dogmael’s, the Pembrokeshire section of the Wales Coast Path runs along the rugged north coast with its high, windswept cliffs, dropping in to Newport, Fishguard and the tiny cathedral city of St Davids.

As the route rounds St Davids peninsula, it enters St Bride’s Bay, home to countless coves, beaches and historic headlands.

Beyond the Marloes peninsula and then St Ann’s Head, the nature of the coast path changes again to the more developed coast around the Milford Haven. Rounding the Angle peninsula, the path passes through spectacular limestone and red sandstone scenery on its way to lovely Tenby and its end point at Amroth Castle.
