You'll then pass Ramsey Sound, then Porthlysgi Bay. During this walk you will likely see seals, dolphins, porpoises, and a variety of birds. You'll eventually reach Point St. John and Whitesands Bay. There are several historic chapels and buildings along the route as well.

Great walk! We started at 11 a.m from St David’s visitor centre and went past the hotel towards Caerfai beach. Turned right for a fantastic walk along the cliffs. Path was very well worn and easy. By the time we got round the headland level with Ramsey island , it was around 4 p.m (This was because all of the excellent photo opportunities and seal and dolphin spotting)! As we were eating out that night and staying an hours drive away,we reluctantly shorted the walk by turning right at a finger post signed for St David’s, which was on the cliff path around 400 yards short of the the 2 lifeboat stations. This was a well signposted acorn trail back into St David’s.Next time we will give it the full days treatment and take in the beach aswell as it is such a great walk.
