Best Coastal Walks In Pembrokeshire. Pembrokeshire boasts some of the best coastal walks in the UK. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail twists and turns its way through 186 miles of breathtaking scenery from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries. There is no doubt that Pembrokeshire is one of the most popular destinations for coastal walks not only in Wales but the UK and people from all over the world come every year to experience the natural beauty that the Pembrokeshire coastline has to offer. Last year, The Independent voted The Pembrokeshire Coast Path as its ‘best summer walk’ but we think it’s fantastic at any time of year!
One of the finest stretches of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a favourite walk of ours, is the circular walk from Stackpole Quay along the headland to stunning Barafundle Bay (again voted best beach in 2011 by The Sunday Mirror and The Independent). The walk continues on to Broad Haven beach, around Bosherston Lily Ponds and back to Stackpole Quay. It takes about 1.5hrs to complete this magical walk through scenery which ranges from the calm relaxed lakeside, with it’s mass of water lilies in June, through the exhilaration of cliff top views and two wonderful sandy beaches. Don’t miss it!
