Where is it?
This National Trail
winds its way along some very diverse coastlines in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales, from Amroth to Cardigan.
Along the way, visit St Davids (the smallest city in Britain), look out for Dolphins, Seals, and of course the famous Puffins (worth a hop over to Skomer island for), and enjoy seaside life in general; everything from some of the most stunning cliffs around to those perfect little tea-shops which more than satisfy the needs of the areas outdoor adventurers and beach-lovers.

Why walk it?
The walking itself is really diverse - clifftops, beaches, rugged climbs and woodland walks. As our own Gemma reported from her trip: "Every day there was yet another view that I declared to be the best I ever saw".

It is pretty much a checklist of the perfect coastal walk, with rocks, sand, sealife, and lovely coastal communities along the way.
