The North section is definitely the more challenging of the walks on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path but the invigorating abundance of wild and spectacular coastal scenery throughout is ample reward. The journey takes in a wealth of history, wildlife and wild scenery as it winds its way along a stunning and rugged coastline, through pretty villages passing along deserted, empty coves and beaches where smugglers and pirates once reigned supreme.
Commencing in the quaint village of St Dogmaels ,with the remains of a 12th Century Abbey, you will continue along the stunning and rugged coastline as you admire the dramatic, rugged geology, including The Witches Cauldron, a spectacular blowhole and the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy, where a flooded slate quarry has formed a formidable scene.
Experience spotting Grey Seals, Dolphins and Porpoises from the high cliff tops of Pembrokeshire, including Cemaes Head, where there are fantastic views out to sea with Cardigan Island in the distance and horses grazing the land to conserve the habitats of native wildlife, including the rare Chough.
The final stretch of the journey rounds St Davids Head where there are views over Whitesands Bay and Ramsey Island. Here, you may see Gannets diving for fish off-shore, or Peregrine Falcons leaving the high cliffs. Finally, as you arrive in the tiny beautiful and unique Cathedral city of St Davids, the smallest city in Britain, favoured by artists, travellers and pilgrims, you will find there is a wealth of seaside shops to explore before your journey home.
Truly a rewarding experience and a walking holiday to cherish.

Recommended dates to walk this route
Although this walk may be undertaken all year round, we would advise against the winter months purely due to the shorter daylight hours in this period. Also, a lot of the accommodations and food outlets close during these months.
This is the most challenging section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, with high mileages and demanding terrain, but with the rewards of breath-taking views and stunning scenery.
