The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path has over 180 miles of admittedly stunning scenery but with a height gain equivalent to climbing Everest from sea level. That’s almost five miles straight up! Let’s talk all about walking the West Wales coastal paths.

We’ve had visions of walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path with a light rucksack, staying at comfortable pubs or B & Bs and getting increasingly fit and more lithe as we strode through the warm sunshine. This fantasy would have remained just a fantasy however the Ceredigion Coastal Path was opened as part of the Welsh Assembly Government project for a path along the whole of the Wales coastline by 2012.

The Ceredigion Coastal Path is a third of the length of its Pembrokeshire neighbour. We walked the sixty plus miles in sections, on odd days and not in order but it was a wonderful experience. Now we had the confidence to tackle the Pembrokeshire path, again on separate days, but this time from one end (Amroth) to the other (St Dogmaels). We are now close to Little Haven, nearly half way. All we can say is please consider trying all or part of this path; you will not regret it.
