According to the Telegraph, walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path must be included in everyone’s ultimate bucket list and we agree.
Opened in 1970, the 186 miles of the path stretches from Amroth in the south of the County to St Dogmaels in the north and covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, volcanic headlands, stunning beaches, estuaries and flooded glacial valleys.
The path displays an array of coastal flowers and bird life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present. Dolphins, porpoises and even whales can be spotted from the path.
Completing the Coast Path in one go, taking on average between 10 to 15 days, is quite an undertaking. The ascents and descent are said to be the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest; 35,000 feet! However, the Coastal Bus Service allows walkers to walk a short section at a time and return to the start of their walk
In 2012 the Pembrokeshire Coast Path became part of the Wales Coast Path; the world’s first uninterrupted route along a national coast, and the Wales Coast Path covers 870 miles. That’s a good walk!
