“The most beautiful part of Wales is the coastline of Pembrokeshire: the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park includes almost the entire coastline of South-West Wales, including the neighboring islands – Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm, as well as Ramsey island, at the end of the northern peninsula enclosing St Brides Bay, and Caldey Island, near Tenby, a little to the south east. The national park includes also the estuary of Daugleddau, and the marshland surrounding the Preseli Hills. The hiking trail along the Pembrokeshire coast is around three hundred kilometers in length, but as at least two weeks would be needed to complete this journey, most choose to hike only a smaller section of this trail.
The winding coastline and dramatic cliffs – perhaps the finest in the whole of the UK – are interspersed with small fishing villages and long, sandy beaches. At times this landscape can appear bleak, windswept and isolated, but it is enlivened by over fifty ruined castles, as well as St. David’s Cathedral – the most important ecclesiastical monument in Wales.
In very general terms, we may say that tourists visit this region for three reasons: to walk a beautiful coastline, to encounter abundant wildlife, and to engage in outdoor pursuits such as surfing, sailing, canoeing, diving, fishing, horseback riding, sea kayaking and, of course, rock climbing.” (2019)
