Boasting several National Parks and many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty it should be no surprise that stunning scenery, soaring mountains, and refreshing coastal walks are never far away when on a walking holiday in Wales. This landscape offers an abundance of choice for a walking holiday, and it is no wonder that Wales is a magnet for walkers of all abilities.
Pembrokeshire is Britain’s only coastal National Park. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path twists and turns its way for 186 miles along the most breathtaking coastline in Britain. It covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops, and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries
Walk through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain along this coastline path. Experience almost every kind of maritime landscape from cliff top paths to sandy beaches, seaside towns to old fishing villages, sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path was the first National Trail in Wales – it was opened to the public in 1970 – and winds along 186 miles (299 km) of rugged coastline along the western peninsula of Wales. As it twists along a coastline of ever-changing natural beauty this route offers the walker stunning views of secluded beaches, castle ruins and traditional welsh fishing villages.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a varied walk and can at times be challenging. The undulating nature of some sections of the route present physically demanding ascents and descents, however, it can be enjoyed in shorter sections as these are more accessible to walkers of all ages and abilities.
Puffins and seals abound in this coastal habitat, and bird watchers and plant lovers are drawn to the area due to the rich diversity of wildlife. Sea birds thrive along this coastline and, due to a multitude of habitats, an amazing array of flowers and plants can be enjoyed at all times of the year.
We had a wonderful holiday!

You all do an amazing job! This was our first ever walking tour in the UK and we loved it! We were very fortunate to have great weather during our walk and we especially enjoyed being able to walk on the beach during parts of several days. Thank you!
