Pembrokeshire Coast Path Walks from Broad Haven
Pembrokeshire is one of the most breath-taking counties in the UK and is the only coastal national park on the British Isles. A trip to Atlantic View means that you’re staying directly in the middle of one of the Pembrokeshire coast’s most iconic bays, St Bride’s Bay.
A trip to Pembrokeshire would not be complete without a walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and from Atlantic View, a walk North or a walk South provides stunning sea views, plenty of beaches and coves as well as the possibility of a glimpse of some rare Welsh wildlife. Get your walking boots on, grab a bottle of water and get ready for one of the most gorgeous walks you’ll ever take!
Head north on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
Destination: Broad Haven to Newgale
Duration: 10 miles
A fantastic stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for a brisk walk is north towards Newgale beach. This beautiful walk takes in several secret beaches not visible from the road and passes the beach waterfall at Druidstone, as well as old coal mine chimneys and rock formations such as the impressive Rickets Head near Nolton Haven. Alternatively, if you’re too tired to walk back to Atlantic View after a ramble up the coastline, then check out the bus times for the Puffin Shuttle. The bus number is 400 and it travels along the coast road from St Davids all the way down to Martin’s Haven. You can catch it from outside the Spar shop in Broad Haven.
Not tired at all and fancy more of a Pembrokeshire Coast Path challenge? A steep hill heads out of Newgale and towards the gorgeous fishing village of Solva, where crab sandwiches and cream teas await! Some parts of this walk are a little steeper than what lays behind you, and perhaps you’ll spot the odd shipwreck in the water, indicating how treacherous this part of the Pembrokeshire coast path can be. But if wild walks are your thing, this is definitely a rewarding extra few miles, and you can catch the same 400 bus home and justify your G&T back at your cottage!
Head south on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
Destination: Broad Haven to Martin’s Haven
Duration: 11 miles
Walk the mile along the road to the sleepy hamlet of Little Haven (possibly stopping in the historic Swan Inn for some dutch courage before you leave) and head out along the steep Strawberry Hill and out on to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from here. Despite the initial steep hill, the next 4 miles or so open out into flat cliffs, laden with gorse and heather, affording clear views of St Bride’s Haven ahead. These cliffs are home to several indigenous sea birds, including the famous Manx Shearwater, so keep an eye out! The lovely red sandstone of Musselwick Sands glistens with yellow agate before changing to undulating cliffs and dunes as you arrive in Martin’s Haven. We know you’ll agree it was worth the walk when you look North and take in the spectacular views towards St Davids Head and Ramsey Island. Take the bus home, or if you need to walk off a week of dinners at Sunshine Italian or St Bride’s Inn, then why not walk back again?
All that’s left for you to do then is to relax in comfort and watch the glorious coastal sunsets from Atlantic View, your home from home.
