Taking a walk by the coast will not only ensure you get an extra 47 minutes of quality sleep but also provide you with feelings of calm, happiness and escapism, according to a survey carried out as part of The National Trust’s Great British Walk Campaign. Walking by the sea conjures up happy memories of family holidays and a carefree childhood, according to the research.
This, combined with the fact that the Marloes Peninsula in Pembrokeshire features in the National Trust’s list of the 10 best coastal walks in Britain means that coming to Pembrokeshire is a must!
With 186 miles of stunning coast path to choose from, Pembrokeshire provides the ideal spot for a coastal walk and, with an abundance of wildlife to spot along the way, from puffins and porpoises to seal pups, dolphins and sun fish, there is never a dull moment.
In Spring the coast path is festooned with bluebells and Spring flowers whilst in late Summer these are replaced by colourful heathers. Along the way you come across wonderful sandy beaches, rugged smugglers’ coves and ancient Neolithic Cromlechs or burial chambers.
Alternatively take a boat to one of the many islands such as Skomer, home to wonderfully comical puffins, manx sheerwaters, razorbills, plus harbour porpoises, atlantic grey seals, dolphins and the unique Skomer vole or Caldey with its fabulous beaches and tranquil monastery. There really is a walk for every day of the year.
