The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is fantastic from start to finish, but right out west St Davids makes a great base for a two night short break. Britain’s tiniest city (population: 1,797) is full of history and the cliff scenery either side is superb. The coastal bus service runs back and forth along the coast making linear walks easy to achieve. Choose late April to mid-June to see the coastal flowers at their best.
Whitesands Bay to St Davids via St Justinians and Porthclais, or start in St Justinians for a shorter walk. You can’t miss the stunning views of the Ramsey Island RSPB Reserve and the beach café in Porthclais makes a welcome refreshment stop. Distance: nine miles/15km – seven and half miles/12kms
Walk St Davids to Solva, or extend your route to Newgale for far reaching views along the coast. The Harbour Inn beside the fjord-like inlet at Solva makes a perfect lunch stop. Distance: six miles/10km – nine miles/12kms
