There are some magnificent walks in Pembrokeshire; just a few of which are listed in The Telegraph article below.
Seabirds, seal haul-outs and the remains of an Iron Age hill fort on Garn Fawr’s gnarled tor punctuate this circuit of Pembrokeshire’s most rugged headland.
Distance: Eight miles
Map: OS OL35
Route: From the car park overlooking Strumble Head lighthouse, trace the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (PCP) east above a succession of coves, echoing with the grunts of grey seals. From the obelisk at Carregwastad Point, veer southwest along footpaths and lanes to climb the knoll of Garn Fawr, descending to rejoin the PCP at Pwll Deri; turn right to return to the lighthouse.
These hills, from which Stonehenge’s bluestones were mined, reveal another facet of Pembrokeshire away from the coast. Carningli Common, studded with a hill fort, hut circles and rocky tors, is Dartmoor in miniature, while wooded Cwm Gwaun hosts buzzards and red squirrels. Newport is an artsy hub with tempting cafés and pubs.
Distance: 11 miles

Route: From Newport, walk between church and castle south along lanes to Cilgwyn. Turn right past a quarry, following a forest path southwest to Dan Coed. Rejoin the road, take a sharp right at Dyffryn Arms, turn right again at the Bedd Morris standing stone on to Carningli Common, then veer left back to Newport.
This craggy cape is a geological primer of cliffs and volcanic rock stacks. Add one of the region’s finest beaches, seabirds galore and Iron Age remains for a rewarding coastal walk along trails spangled pink and white with thrift and sea campion in summer.
Distance: 10.5 miles

Route: From Martin’s Haven car park, follow the PCP east to Musselwick Sands and north as far as St Bride’s Haven. Veer inland south to Marloes for sustenance, then continue southwest to the golden sweep of Marloes Sands, rejoining the PCP to Martin’s Haven and its rugged Deer Park.
Stackpole & St Govan’s Head
This glorious trail traverses clifftops and rolling countryside, visiting empty beaches and a medieval hermit’s cell. The route is sprinkled with appealing places to refuel, notably tea rooms and gastropubs in Bosherston and Stackpole.
Distance: 8.5 miles
Map: OS OL36
Route: From Bosherston car park, follow the lake’s northern shore east (watch for otters) and cross the bridge at the Manor House. Cross fields east to Stackpole Quay, turning right on to the PCP past beautiful Barafundle Bay beach and along cliffs to Stackpole Head and Broad Haven. Continue to St Govan’s Head, above the titular saint’s chapel wedged into the rocks, and the track back to Bosherston.
