The Pembrokeshire Coast Path follows a National Trail for 186 miles (299km) around the magnificent coastline of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in south-west Wales.
Renowned for its unspoilt sandy beaches, secluded coves, tiny fishing villages and off-shore islands rich in bird and marine life, this National Trail provides some of the best coastal walking in Britain.
New for the fourth edition:
# Extra colour mapping–14 stage maps (one stage per page) including trail profiles showing climbs and descents and two overview maps to help plan the walk
# Maximum accommodation options–some modifications to starts and ends of stages to give greater choice of places to stay
# Comprehensive information for tidal estuaries–full details on walking along tidal sections of the path to keep safe
# Guided detours around private land eg Ministry of Defence–avoiding road walking where possible

# Itineraries for all walkers–whether hiking the route in its entirety or sampling the highlights on day walks or short breaks. Includes detailed public transport information for all access points.
# Practical information for all budgets–what to see, where to stay, where to eat: pubs, hotels, B&Bs, camping, bunkhouses, hostels.
