Book Tickets Online


Pembrokeshire is home to the iconic and worldclass landscape of the Pembrokeshire Coast National
Park. With National Trail designation, the route takes you through some of Britain’s most spectacular and
breathtaking scenery, including stunning beaches and picturesque harbours, as well as taking in the UK’s smallest city - St Davids. As well as being visually breathtaking, Pembrokeshire offers exciting wildlife spotting opportunities, both on land and out to sea.

Suggested Walks:
Please note that distances are one way unless otherwise specified. Where public transport is shown, this means that the
start and finish points are linked (timetable dependent). The use of to plan your journey is recommended.

1. CEIBWR to PWLL Y WRACH under 1 mile
Ceibwr Bay was once a busy port serving Moylegrove. Pwll y Wrach – the Witches’ Cauldron – is one of the most striking
geological features on this stretch of coast – a collapsed cave, formed where the sea has picked out soft, crumbling shale and
sandstone along a fault line.

Explore the lovely, mediaeval town of Newport. Set on the Nevern Estuary, with some excellent wheelchair accessible
stretches, you can take a gentle stroll and enjoy some wildlife watching along the way. (Bus)

3. WHITESANDS to SOLVA (21km / 13miles)
From the golden sands of Whitesands Bay this walk passes close to St Davids – Britain’s smallest city – and ends in the
pretty harbour village of Solva. Porpoise can be seen in the waters between the mainland and Ramsey Island so it’s worth
stopping for a break along this stretch. (Bus)

4. MARTIN'S HAVEN to MARLOES (3.5km / 2miles
Explore the Deer Park with its views across Jack Sound to Skomer Island and continue along this dramatic stretch of coast. Sit and watch the waters in the Jack Sound race by and look out for gannets and porpoise. In September and October, this is a great place for spotting seal pups on the beaches below (but remember that these are high cliffs so caution is always advised). A small extension to this walk will take you to the strikingly beautiful Marloes beach.

This stunning walk typifies why this coastline is worthy of National Park status. It contains the National Trust’s Barafundle
beach (voted one of the top ten beaches in the world) and the Lily Ponds at Bosherston. (Bus)

6. TENBY (7km / 4.6miles)
Take in this bustling, pretty seaside town and its nearby countryside. There are great views out to Caldey Island, home
to a religious community since the sixth century. You can take boat trips from Tenby to explore the island. (Bus & Train)
