Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – 60th anniversary

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – 60th anniversary.  Britain’s only Coastal National Park celebrates this special milestone on 29 February.  Known primarily for the 186mile/299km Pembrokeshire Coast Path and taking the serious walker around two weeks to complete, it is a demanding but very rewarding trail from Amroth in the south to St. Dogmael’s in the north. From May the path will link in to the Wales Coastal Path, the world’s first National Trail.

Pembrokeshire offers other delights to the visitor – offshore islands such as Skomer and Ramsey are important wildlife havens and beneath the coastal waters the marine nature reserves and ancient wrecks entice divers to the natural beauty beneath.  There are picturesque harbours, soaring cliffs, small sandy coves and glorious, clean, long golden beaches – more Blue Flag beaches than any other county.  The mild Atlantic sea breezes ensure some of the UK’s best surfing beaches and the fun filled activity of ‘coasteering’ came into being in Pembrokeshire (in our younger days it was simply called scrambling around the rocks and jumping into the water!).

No part of Pembrokeshire is more than 12 miles from the sea and inland, the peaceful river estuaries and wooded valleys contrast with the dramatic Preseli Hills – wonderful to explore by bike or on horseback.  It is a small county with many contrasts – a place to challenge yourself with fun filled activities of all kinds or a place to simply unwind and relax in our ozone rich air.  Pembrokeshire would love to welcome you during it’s special diamond anniversary year,  and so would we!

Happy anniversary to our glorious Pembrokeshire Coast National Park!

Best Coastal Walks In Pembrokeshire

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!
