Day 040: Amroth – Manobier

Today is the start of my 186-mile trek of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, starting at Amroth, which is now incorporated in the Wales Coast Path.


I start with a stiff climb out of Amroth onto a grassy cliff top.

Soon I drop down to Wiseman’s Bridge with its rocky beach and a very welcoming looking pub. I am tempted to stop but resist the temptation and continue on my journey.


Walking towards Saundersfoot I pass through a series of tunnels which are quite dimly lit with red lights set in the path. It turns out that this was the path of a narrow gauge railway going to the harbour at Saundersfoot. Saundersfoot is now a holiday place with a harbour, quite a few pubs and eating places.


I move on to Tenby, with its medieval town walls including the five arches and a pretty harbour on the north side. On the south side is a two and a half mile sandy beach to walk along.


Leaving Tenby, I pass Caldrey Island and St. Margaret’s Island which only get separated at high tide.

I love some of the names of spectacular coves and rocks I pass like Skrinkle Haven and Church Doors.
