Best Walks in Wales

Cnict on a sunny day

Over the coming months we will bring you a database of some of the Best Walks in Wales. Wales has a fantastic range of both high level and low level walking routes. Snowdonia is perhaps the most famous area for walking in Wales, with Snowdon being the highest mountain in the country. However, Snowdonia also has many other splendid mountain summits including Tryfan, Cadair Idris and The Glyders. Outside this area there is of course also the Brecon Beacons National Park, famous for Pen y Fan. But Wales does not just have these abundant mountain walks, it hosts a number of beautiful lower level routes including coastal walks and treks through beautiful valleys.

Pembrokeshire has one of the best coastlines, if not maybe the very best coastline, in the UK. Crystal clear seas, fascinating rock formations and dramatic cliffs make this an incredibly special National Park. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a long distance trail that take in the entire coast! However, for those with less time or less energy there are also many circular walks, or single day sections of this stunning coastline to be explored.

Cliffs near Newport of a sunny day St Dogmaels to Newport
This is the first day of The Pembrokeshire Coast path, and is perhaps one of the hardest. It is very undulating throughout, however the superb coastal views will take your mind off of the various hills. Also, make sure you do cast your gaze out towards the sea, since you can often spot dolphins here!

Ruin at Cwm-yr-Eglwys Newport to Fishguard
This is the second day of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, it is much gentler than the first, not only in length but it is also much less undulating. However, you will still get the same dramatic scenery and superb coastal views that you enjoyed on the first day.

Views back to Strumble Head Fishguard to Pwll Deri
This is the third day of The Pembrokeshire coastal path, and the shortest day of the trail so far. However, there are excellent views throughout the 9.2 miles, including walking through some very special areas, such as Strumble Head.

Views of Porthgain Pwll Deri to Porthgain
This is the fourth day of The Pembrokeshire Coastal path and it offers 12 unbroken miles of stunning coastal scenery with very straightforward navigation.

Whitesand's Bay from the cliff top on a sunny day Porthgain to Whitesands
This is the fifth day of The Pembrokeshire Coastal path, and is on of the shorter days of the route. Starting in by the ruins of Porthgain and ending in the beautiful Whitesands Bay, it is a very special walk indeed.

Small Bay near Solva Whitesands Bay to Solva
This is the sixth day of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path and begins on the famous Whitesand’s Bay. There are excellent coastal views throughout the day including view to Ramsey Island, as well as a series of stunning bays.

Broad Haven Beach Solva to Broad Haven
This is the seventh day of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and will take you passed the famous and beautiful Newgale Sands, as well as a selection of other lesser known but equally stunning beaches, before heading into the small coastal village of Broad Haven
