They used to call Pembrokeshire ‘Gwlad Hud a Lledrith’, which meant ‘Land of Mystery and Enchantment’. It has certainly worked its magic in recent year. In 2012 National Geographic magazine named Pembrokeshire the world’s second-best coastal destination. So we have decided to put together some of our favourite Pembrokeshire coastline walks for you to try on your next motorhome holiday.
Pembrokeshire coastline walks
Perhaps the real joy of this coast is that a carefully chosen mile walk will reveal the magic that wowed National Geographic. As we offer motorhome hire you can visit Pembrokeshire this year and stay overnight in the comfort of your own motorhome. This way you can discover new views on your return.
To get you started here are four of our favourite walks on the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
The Cemaes Head walk is lovely to do during spring. It’s 5 miles long and you’ll see fulmars, cormorants and guillemots nesting on the highest cliffs in the National Park. More seals breed here than anywhere else in Wales from mid-summer. And year-round you’re likely to spot chough, ravens, kestrels and buzzards, you may even see bottlenose dolphins in the bay.
Porthgain to Whitesands
Embark on this walk from pretty Porthgain harbour for exhilarating hiking along high cliffs. This coastal walk is 10 miles and along this route, you’ll see spectacular views to rocky bays, a ruined settlement at Abereiddy beach, with its Neolithic burial chambers and views to Ramsey Island, before a paddle at Whitesands beach.
This is a 5-mile cliff walk that’s as good as it gets for families. It’s a pretty harbour at Stackpole Quay with beautiful Barafundle Bay and Broad Haven beach. There is also Bosherston lily ponds which come as an unexpected bonus. There are lots of pet-friendly pubs located nearby so after a great day walking visit a nearby pub for some well-deserved food.
Deer Park to Dale, 10 miles
This walk near Marloes is a superb day out. This walk is over 10 miles long and has beautiful coastline scenic views to Skomer Island which is surrounded by seabirds. Use it to for a days walk around the Dale Peninsula: around St Anne’s Head, there’s raw Atlantic on one side, a calm estuary on the other and a straight back to the Griffin Inn in Dale.
All of these Pembrokeshire coastline walks are perfect for walking your dogs here as well. So don’t forget to check out our pet-friendly motorhomes and take all of your family along with you to visit these stunning coastline walks.
