    As the only coastal national park in Britain, Pembrokeshire is a very special place. On this Tour, you experience the magical beauty of the coastline first-hand.

    With 14.2 miles (22.9 km) of distance and 1,050 feet (320 m) of elevation gain, this hike will test your fitness and endurance. With captivating scenery throughout, though, you might not even notice the effort.

    Before the jaw-dropping beauty of the coast, this hike explores picturesque inland scenery and even includes some fine hillwalking, something this national park is not famous for.

    From Porthclais Farm Campsite, you cross the River Alun and head north through a pretty patchwork landscape. After Whitesands Beach, you begin the climb over Carn Llidi. Whilst it is not exactly a giant, this hill is every bit as perfectly formed as the mountains in North Wales and affords spectacular views.

    You descend to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path National Trail, turn left, and follow it all the way back to the campsite. This entire section is an absolute treasure trove; classic coastal walking, great views, fine beaches, and wonderfully-fresh sea breeze.

    Highlights along the way include: Coetan Arthur, the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber; St David's Head, a dramatic headland with magnificent views over the Irish Sea; numerous natural rock arches; and opportunities to spot seals in the wild.
