Pembroke to Amroth Walk

  • Superb, scenic walking along the southern section of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail
  • Imposing Norman castles, 19th century forts, ancient cliffside chapels
  • Tranquil bays, pristine sandy beaches, secluded coves
  • Idyllic lily ponds, dramatic limestone cliffs, towering sea stacks
  • Pastel coloured Tenby, the jewel of Pembrokeshire

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stretches a staggering 299km along the South Wales coastline from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. The area was first designated a National Park in 1952 with the famous path itself becoming the first national trail in Wales when it opened in 1970. The trail makes for incredibly scenic hiking, with contrasting landscapes ranging from the wild remote headlands of the north to the legendary castle ruins and rock sea pillars of the south. Dotted along the coastline you'll find traditional fishing villages barely touched by tourism, tiny hidden coves and pristine sandy beaches.

This linear walking holiday follows the southernmost section of the Pembrokeshire Coast path, starting in the historic town of Pembroke, with its magnificent Norman castle, the birthplace of King Henry VII. From here follow undulating clifftop trails with far reaching sea vistas, passing distinctive natural rock formations and traversing some of Wales' prettiest bays and sweeping sandy beaches as you make your way to Amroth. Admire panoramic St Govan's Chapel, carefully carved out of the cliff face itself, relax at the delightful lily ponds at Bosherton and explore the narrow lanes, headland castle ruins and picture perfect harbour in vibrant Tenby.

We have chosen especially comfortable, family run accommodation throughout, with two night stays in Stackpole and Tenby to make the most of the superb hospitality in these excellent locations. Full Welsh breakfasts are included throughout so you have the choice of the outstanding pubs and restaurants available locally for your evening meals.

Day-by-day itinerary

Walking information

The walking is mainly along coastal tracks and paths with some woodland sections. There are many ascents and descents as you dip in and out of beaches and bays. As you are walking over high cliffs, often with sheer drops down to the sea, a head for height is necessary.

Day 1: Arrive in Pembroke

There's time to explore the town's famous castle, one of the best preserved strongholds in Wales, before your briefing.
You stay at the Woodbine B&B (breakfast included)

Day 2: Pembroke to Angle 23km/14.5mi/5.5hr

Follow woodland paths and farm trails out to the coast and Fort Popton, a 19th century Palmerston fort, used to defend the coast in World War II. Continue beside the water around Angle Bay to the attractive village of Angle.
You stay at the Angle Bay B&B (breakfast included)

Day 3: Angle to Elegug Stacks 17.5km/11mi/4.5hr

Head round the southern side of Angle peninsula and your first far reaching view of the open sea. The route crosses the beautiful beach at Freshwater West (used as a filming location in one of the later Harry Potter films) before continuing across the cliffs to Elegug Stacks, a pair of lofty limestone towers, standing out to sea. Elegug is the local name for the guillemot and there's a good chance of spotting large colonies of this distinctive black and white bird here. From here we take you to the Stackpole Inn, your accommodation for the next 2 nights.
You stay at the Stackpole Inn (breakfast included)

Day 4: Elegug Stacks to Stackpole Quay 13.5km/8.5mi/3.5hr

After a short transfer back to the coast, start the day with a small detour to the Green Bridge of Wales, a spectacular natural sea arch with superb sea vistas. The route then hugs the coast to Huntsman's Leap, an impressive narrow chasm cut deep into the cliff face, and the iconic St Govan's chapel. Spot the resident otters at the nature reserve in Bosherton, famous for its resplendent waterlily strewn lakes, then it's truly sublime walking over flat limestone cliffs to the stunning Barafundle Bay and Stackpole Quay.
You stay at the Stackpole Inn (breakfast included)

Day 5: Stackpole Quay to Manorbier 11km/6.5mi/3.5hr

Make your way over undulating red sandstone cliffs to the sandy, dune backed shores of Manorbier Bay and the ruins of its fine Norman castle. The walking is more strenuous today but there are tempting opportunities to stop and rest at Freshwater East - once notorious for the smuggling of contraband - and the secluded Swanlake Bay.
You stay at the Castlemead Hotel (breakfast included)

Day 6: Manorbier to Tenby 14km/9mi/4hr

First stop today is King's Quoit, a Neolithic burial chamber perched high on the cliff top overlooking Manorbier Bay. Then it's on to the impressive arches, hidden caves and rocky coves of Skrinkle Haven. There's the option to detour around the Lydstep Point for more superb vistas, before you take to the cliffs again to Tenby's sandy South Beach. Take time to explore this bustling town with its pastel coloured esplanade, ancient town walls and fascinating 16th century Tudor merchant's house.
You stay at the Giltar Hotel (breakfast included)

Day 7: Amroth to Tenby 12km/7.5mi/3.5hr

We take you to Amroth and its 'submerged forest' - a series of 5000 year old tree stumps which magically appear on the beach at low tide. Continue to Wiseman's Bridge, a tiny village with a rocky beach, before heading through disused mining railway tunnels to picturesque Saundersfoot. A fish and chip lunch overlooking the lovely beach perhaps, then an undulating woodland path takes you back to Tenby.
You stay at the Giltar Hotel (breakfast included)

Day 8: Leave Tenby

Please note on days 3, 4 and 6, sections of the path go through MOD ground. These may not be accessible if the MOD if firing; alternative routes will be provided.
