Pembrokeshire is an area of outstanding beauty with tremendous variety. From majestic cliffs
to sand dunes, from broad river estuaries to cascading streams, from gently rolling arable land to rocky outcrop - all can be seen within a few miles of each other.
To protect and preserve this beauty and the wildlife it supports we have the Pembrokeshire Coast
National Park Authority, West Wales Trust and
The National Trust .
Unlike many coastal walks ~ walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path you will still experience the unique sense solitude and timelessness of walking by sea.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path twists and turns its way around the dramatic Pembrokeshire peninsula
following the entire Pembrokeshire coastline for
186 miles/ 299 km.
Little Haven is a picturesque old fishing village with steep streets that descend to a sandy beach with a slipway for small boats,including the local inshore rescue boat. The beach itself is popular with swimmers and divers in the summer months,
but not really suitable for 'forces-of-nature' sports. However, at low tide there is a pleasant walk along the beach to Broad Haven with numerous caves and rockpools to explore. There is a pay and display car park close to the beach and facilities are numerous with pubs offering food and drink together with shops.
Broad Haven (west) is a large, magnificent expanse of sand, which runs the entire length of Broad Haven Village. It is a favorite with bathers and waterspouts enthusiasts, with plenty of pubs, a shop, restaurant, cafe etc. Broad Havens westerly facing sandy beach offers excellent conditions for kite-surfing, kite-buggying, windsurfing and surfing. For surfing, Broad Haven can offer some protection from SW winds and is usually about half the size and cleaner than
Newgale just up the coast, and is popular with windsurfing. Broad Haven is one of the most popular family beaches in this area and home to Haven Sports watersports shop. There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North End of the bay. To find Broad Haven follow the B4341 from Haverfordwest
In the Celtic Welsh language Pen-fro (bro) means lands end; it was to Pembrokeshire that the original Celtic tribes from 'Celtic Spain', the Iberian Peninsula and France migrated and settled along the coast. The Bluestones for Stonehenge were transported from the Preseli Mountains in north Pembrokeshire along ancient Celtic Trails and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is
lined with Cromlechs, standing stones and circles.
Many centuries later the Celtic Saints walked these coastal trails. St David established his church and it was from here St Patrick made his journey to Ireland in 5th Century.
