As the home of Britain’s one and only national coastal park, Pembrokeshire is rightly famed for its marine wildlife, unspoilt beaches, towering cliffs and charming harbours. Inland, however, you will also find ancient woodlands and rolling hills, as well as archaeological mysteries and crumbling castles which suggest that this peaceful part of Wales has a far more turbulent past.
The 40 moderate walks in this volume explore the stunning coastline as well as the heartland of the county, with several routes making use of sections of established long-distance walking trails.

As the home of Britain’s one and only national coastal park, Pembrokeshire is rightly famed for its marine wildlife, unspoilt beaches, towering cliffs and charming harbours. Pembrokeshire’s coastline has a well-deserved reputation. It is undeniably beautiful and – thanks to its long-distance path – very accessible. The county’s beaches regularly top popularity polls and its headlands and islands make coastal walking a joy. For the most part it’s unspoilt, partly thanks to the care and attention of the dedicated folk at Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Britain’s one and only seaside national park. People often assume that Pembrokeshire is a national park, whereas it’s actually a county that contains a national park – a little less than half of the county is within the park. The coastline is so good that sometimes the rest of the county gets overlooked, and the national park’s focus is, understandably, on the area within its boundaries. But Pembrokeshire’s green, peaceful heartland is very special and should not be missed.
