The Pembrokeshire Coast Path , also often called the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, is a designated National Trail in Pembrokeshire, southwest Wales. It was established in 1970, and is 186 miles long, mostly at cliff-top level, with a total of 35,000 feet of ascent and descent. At its highest point – Pen yr afr, on Cemaes Head – it reaches a height of 574 feet , and at its lowest point – Sandy Haven crossing, near Milford Haven – it is just 6 feet above low water. Whilst most of the coastline faces west, it offers – at varying points – coastal views in every direction of the compass.
The southern end of the path is at Amroth, Pembrokeshire. The northern end is often regarded as being at Poppit Sands, near St. Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire, where the official plaque was originally sited but the path now continues to St. Dogmaels, where a new marker was unveiled in July 2009. Here the path links with the Ceredigion Coast Path, which continues northwards.
