UK, Wales – A Jourey Along the Pembrokshire Coast

Published: 26.10.2019
Pembrokeshire Coast is one of the three National Parks in Wales. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, less than 300 km long, runs through the park and attracts many walkers and coastal fauna and flora every year. It is a landscape full of rugged and cliffs which are very typical in almost all of Britain, sandy beaches, wooded delta rivers, from which the landscape rises further inland to the tops of local mountains.

The entire national park is divided into four main parts, the first being the south coast of Pembrokeshire, including Caldey, the Daugledau estuary, St Bridge Bay and the Preseli Hills. The coastal trail runs from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. Along the way it is possible to observe all kinds of landscapes - from sharp cliffs and hidden caves to wide open beaches, which are also suitable for surfing and other seaside sports, to.

Climbing the entire path is often compared to climbing Mt. Everest but if you decide to take only a part of it, you will not miss it. The National Park was opened in 1952, and it was soon apparent that the coastal villages had insufficient connections (some villages were transported by boat only, there was no land route). So the idea of a coastal trail that would connect the whole area began to emerge. The work on the trail lasted 17 years, mainly due to the construction of more than a hundred stone bridges and the reluctance of some landowners who did not want to allow free passage through their fields and pastures.

Pembrokeshire in its entire beauty

The whole trail leads on a fairly flat surface, which is pleasant, but it is still a difficult route full of surprises. In two places (in Dale and Sandy Haven) the crossing is only possible at low tide, so if you plan your trip badly, you may be surprised. Beautiful coastal towns and villages abound in the Welsh spirit. Quiet campsites and night accommodation are available for tourists on the coastal route.

To choose a shorter route, I recommend visiting the official website of  Pembrokeshire Path, which lists approximately 130 of the most popular, mostly day-long trips, and where you can also find a detailed schedule of bus routes..

The inconspicuous island in the southwestern part of Pembrokeshire was first settled in the Iron Age. It was originally called Skalmey, a name taken from the Viking words of Skalm (short Czech sword) and ey (island). The name was probably derived from the shape of the island, which is divided into two equal sized areas connected by a narrow rocky barrier of natural origin and therefore looks like half-polished. During the Iron Age, there were estimated to be up to 200 people, so it was an important and flourishing community for some time.
