This guidebook describes the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, a scenic 180-mile long-distance walk from Amroth, near Tenby, to St Dogmaels, north of Newport. The route, which takes roughly two weeks to complete, is divided into 14 stages of between 9 and 16 miles. Neither technically demanding nor difficult to navigate, the trail is suitable both for experienced distance walkers and those looking to cut their teeth on a long-distance route.
Detailed route instructions are accompanied by 1:100,000 OS mapping. A route summary table and comprehensive trek planner are also included, with invaluable information on transport, accommodation and facilities en route. The guidebook is packed with interesting snippets of information about the places, landscapes and wildlife encountered along the way. It also includes a 1:25,000 OS map booklet which shows the full route, providing all the mapping needed to complete the trail.
Showcasing the region's spectacular coastal scenery, this National Trail takes in soaring rugged cliffs, serene inlets, broad sandy beaches and quaint coastal villages as it follows the twists and turns of this magical coastal path.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path can be walked throughout the year. Accommodation may be more scarce in the winter months, but avoid high summer as it will be even more difficult to find.
