Hiking trail along the famous Whitesands Bay

Walk through lonely bays with your hiking shoes tightly laced. Breathe in the salty breeze on seemingly endless beaches and forget everything around you for a short time. In the south west of Wales, in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, you will definitely succeed. The spectacular coastal landscape of the British Isles, paired with flowering fields and hospitality let the hikers heart blossom.

Are you a bird lover? Then go to Pembrokeshire! The rugged cliffs offer the perfect habitat for a wide variety of birds and are thus a real treat for hobby ornithologists.

Attention nature lovers and friends of the British coast! The hike from Newport to St. Davids really has it all. Rugged cliffs, the sound of the sea and the magical Welsh villages round off the overall package of this hiking trip.

A highlight is waiting for you on day three of the trip: you will reach the Dinas peninsula, where you will have a fantastic view of the colourful marshlands of the hilly coastal landscape. Thanks to the natural beauty of the British Isles, one highlight follows the last. The next day, the headland in the north of Pembrokeshire emphasises the unique character of the area. A lighthouse as well as the distinctive villages and fishing bays can’t fail to leave you amazed.

  • Pembroke Castle: The Norman castle from the 12th century towers on the rocky ridge. It is surrounded by water on three sides.
  • St Davids Cathedral: One of the oldest sites in the UK is found in Pembrokeshire. Its origins date back to the sixth century, so the building is impressive.

The hike along the coast in Pembrokeshire, Wales is impressive, scenic and varied. Over eight days you always have the sea in mind and hike through picturesque villages and counties. Surefootedness and a good level of fitness are still required on this Eurohike hiking tour.
