The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes through Aberfforest and stretches for 186 miles from Poppit to Amroth. Follow the path directly from the bay for fantastic scenic walks to Newport Beach, Pwll Gwaelod, Cwm-yr-Eglwys and round Dinas Head, to name a few. There are also a few pubs within walking distance which offer a brief respite on a longer walk or the destination for a shorter one!
The Times newspaper (August 2011) reported the following, confirming what regular visitors already knew:
“The 186 miles of Pembrokeshire Coastal Path has been named as one of the world’s top walks, ahead of the Inca Trail and the trek to Mount Kilimanjaro. The travel agent Cheapflights describes Pembrokeshire as a haven for wildlife. “Along the path travellers can witness incredible historical sites such as 2,000-year-old forts, burial grounds from 400AD and a medieval castle or two,” it says.”
However, don’t be put off by the length of the coastal path. Year round Coastal Bus Services allow walkers to explore further afield from Aberfforest. You can travel by bus a few miles down the coast and walk back at your own pace. There are also plenty of smaller circular walks.
