Pembrokeshire coast path – camping

Date: 5th -7th August

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path twists and turns its way along the most breathtaking coastline in Britain. It covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries. Lying almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park —Britain’s only coastal national park – the trail displays an array of coastal flowers and bird life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present. We will be walking during the day, camping at campsites for the night. Prepare for some rugged walks with steep hills and steps, though it should be achievable by most people. See the trip poster and detailed trip plan for more information.
