A nice mixed walk. Largely quiet. A few steep bits but nothing too difficult.

A beautiful coastal walk. We didn't feel like walking across the fields inland, so parked at Whitesands Bay for the day (£5) and caught the shuttle bus to St Davids's (£1.50 one way) and started from there. The first bus was at 9.35 and they seem to be hourly. Finished the walk with a nice cool swim.

A great coastal walk with great views. The route is fairly obvious to follow (follow the acorns) and the walk back into Saint Davids from Whitesands beach is straightforward too as you walk back on small roads. The route just before the beach is more overgrown with more vegetation. I would say the hike is around 20km from where we parked the car at Oriel y parc. There were also decent toilets at the car park which was great.

An amazing trail starting in St. David’s, walking along the rocky Pembrokeshire coastline. Plenty to see along the way, from awesome rock formations, seals, and the RNLI, to oyster catchers, turquoise waters, and colourful coastal flora. We finished the 6hour walk off with a well deserved pint in the friendly beer garden of St. David’s Cross.

Un imperméable peut être votre meilleur allié contre le vent et les averses. Superbe randonnée côtière avec des points de vue spectaculaires.

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.

A great walk with fantastic views. The path is in very good condition which makes this a very straight forward route.
