I would like to share with the community my 2 weeks trek experience on the Coast Path of Pembrokeshire….
I did it 3 months ago, and I was thrilled by the views, you cross outstanding cliffs and over 50 beaches,
if you do it in summer time you get light till 23 so the days are really long…..
What makes the Pembrokeshire Coast Path one of my favorite treks ever is the variety of landscapes you pass through on your way along it, ranging from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, volcanic headlands and flooded glacial valleys. You can also spot plenty of colorful butterflies, seagulls and if you are lucky you can see the seals sunbathing on the shore.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail twists and turns its way through 186 miles of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in Britain.
From St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.
Lying almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park —Britain’s only coastal national park – the trail displays an array of coastal flowers and bird life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present.
In its entirety the Coast Path represents a formidable physical challenge – its 35,000 feet of ascent and descent, The path has more ascend than climbing the Everest yet it can also be enjoyed in shorter sections, accessible to people of all ages and abilities, with the small coastal villages strung out along its length offering welcome breaks and added enjoyment.
Here are some interesting facts useful to know before packing….
* It runs for 186 miles from Poppit to Amroth
