Best Walks - Whitesand’s Bay to Solva - 13 miles (21 km)


A small bay near Solva on a sunny day


Introduction to the Walk
This is the sixth day of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path and begins at the famous Whitesand’s Bay. There are excellent coastal views throughout the day including views to Ramsey Island, as well as a series of stunning bays to walk through.

Parking
There is a car park at both Whitesands Bay and Solva, therefore you can park at either end and start/finish in your preferred place. This is of course a linear walk though, and so do make sure you have planned how you will return to your car at the end of the day if you don’t intend to continue further along the coastal path.

The Route

Stage 1
Begin by leaving Whitesands using the obvious coastal path heading in a southerly direction. You will soon gain views of Ramsey Island as you head towards the lifeboat station at St. Justinian’s.

Stage 2
As you pass St. Justinian’s look out for the famous tidal race near Ramsey Islands called “The Bitches”. This is a famous spot for extreme kayaking, as it creates a fantastic standing wave! As you continue to head south you will soon notice a change in direction of the land as the coastal path swings round to an easterly direction and you will head towards Porthlysg Bay.

Stage 3
From Porthlysg Bay, you will be making your way toward the Quay at Port Clais, passing three further bays; St. Non’s, Caerfai and Caer Bwdy. After leaving the last of these bays continue along the coastal path until you reach the small village of Solva.
