 Pembrokeshire Coast Path - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a National Trail in Wales, United Kingdom.
It was established in 1970, and is 186 miles (300km) long, mostly at cliff-top level, with 35,000 feet (11,000 m) of ascent and descent.
In fact, management of the path has reduced the difficulty level, by creating more stepped ascents and descents; however, the edges of the path can be dangerous, due to the unstable cliff tops, so walkers are warned never to wander from the path towards the edge.

The path hugs the coastline with a continuous view of Ramsey Island for quite some time and around to Porth Clais, a harbor for the city of St. David's used by pilgrims during the Age of Saints, and by small trading vessels in the centuries that followed.
