Pembrokeshire is a county that almost feels like it was created for walkers. The coastline is as serene as it is dramatic, with its Mediterranean blue hues and golden beaches between crashing white waves and steep cliffs. And there are plenty of inland and countryside Pembrokeshire walking trails to discover too, with rolling hills, soft uplands, and historic as well as neolithic sites to explore. All this can be found within a single day’s walking around our St David’s camping site.
Pembrokeshire walking trails to satisfy everyone
The sheer assortment of walks available to people of all desires and abilities, coupled with a landscape that is just as eclectic, means that there are dozens of walking trails out there for everyone to enjoy.
Whilst some people like to walk the entirety of Pembrokeshire’s coastline within a fortnight, many of the known walking routes have been mapped out to complete within half a day or a day, perfect for a leisurely and varied camping trip.
You might want a flat stroll to look out across the coastline and glimpse the several islands dotted out at sea. Perhaps you would like a more demanding hike over the luscious pastures to visit some of Wales’ historic towns. Or maybe you want to do both on the same hike…
You can choose from any number of established hiking trails to go on, both long and short, and can just as easily plot your own route to traverse in and around the Pembrokeshire area.
The established walks available
There are literally dozens of fantastic walking trails in Pembrokeshire available, so many in fact, that this Welsh county has often been named a walker’s paradise. Below is a list of three examples of Pembrokeshire’s stunning walking routes:
- Mynydd Carningli: This route encompasses the best of land and sea walking experiences. You can take a hearty hike over 300m height of wild hills, a visit to church ruins, and top it off with a walk over a saw-toothed coast, all inside a three-hour walk.
- Preseli Hills: A jolly short walk, roughly around an hour and a half, these hills will astound you with their splendour. The vistas are beautiful and often quiet, punctuated by historic and overlooked pubs throughout, and finishing off with a forested descent before reaching the village of Rosebush. And what is more, this was the original resting place of the Stonehenge monuments. Yes, you read that right. It was recently discovered that the famous rocks resided here before being transported to Salisbury.
- Strumble Head: One of the many of Pembrokeshire’s peninsulas, this rocky islet is connected to the mainland by a narrow footbridge, and serves as a perfect midway point for a hike. From the whitewashed lighthouse, you will see multiple bouldering islets, flocking seabirds, and the rest of the jagged coastline. On this walk is also the location of where the last French invasion against the British was held.
