The best of Pembrokeshire

Coastal walking from Newport to St. Davids.

The Pembrokeshire-coast-national park located in the southwest of Wales is renowned for its unique beauty featuring deserted bays, long sandy beaches and one of the most spectacular coastlines of the British Isles. You walk through blooming fields, along jagged coastal paths and enjoy the hospitality in the traditional fishing villages. The rugged cliff coasts offer the perfect habitat for various types of birds, a true paradise for bird watchers and nature enthusiasts! At the end of your walking holiday the beautiful little town of St. Davids awaits with its famous cathedral and the enchanting Solva, which may well be the most beautiful village in Pembrokeshire. The region around the renowned Whitesands Bay offers the perfect finale to a successful walking holiday.
