Explore the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path on this Welsh walking holiday. Walking along this top-rated National Trail, you can enjoy the Pembrokeshire coast with its vast amount of wildlife, including porpoises, dolphins and even small whales. On your daily Pembrokeshire coastal walks, you will sometimes use the local buses to either reach your daily walk or get back to your accommodation. The Pembrokeshire National Park is the UK’s only coastal National Park, and it is truly stunning.
Along the rugged Pembrokeshire coastline, you can also see the birdlife. This is because just off the coast from St David’s is the Island of Ramsey which is a protected bird sanctuary. To enjoy your hiking holiday in Wales, you need to emerge yourself in the history and culture of this beautiful country.
During this 7 night walking holiday in Wales, you can explore many places to visit in Pembrokeshire. Including Dinas Head and Needle Rock, which you can see on your way to Newport.

Soon afterwards, you will arrive in the lovely quaint village of Newport where you can board the Poppit Rocket bus back to Fishguard. Overnight in Fishguard.
After breakfast, you board the local bus – the Poppit Rocket – to the start of your walk-in Newport. This section of the coastal way some say is one of the toughest. You have the chance to exit the coastal path at Molygrove and catch the Poppit Rocket back to Fishguard, or you can continue the full length of the walk. The area around Cardigan Bay is famous for the dolphins which can often be found basking in the harbour and bay region. Overnight in Fishguard
