Day 052 : Newport – Cardigan

Today is the final day on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the weather is bright and easy.


The walk is quite a stiff one with a fair bit of climbing and rocky paths. It is not long into the walk before there are warning signs about the toughness of the climb and there not being any places along the way to escape from the path back to the road.

I leave Newport behind by crossing the road bridge and make my way across the golf course. I keep looking back at the big sweep of Newport Sands.


At Ffynnon Alwn the sea has carved a beautiful arch in the cliff side which you walk across also known as the Witches Cauldron. People have been konown to swim through it when the tide is right.


The last big climb of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is up to Cemaes Head. You can see some lovely rock formations as you climb up. I was told it was a popular place to look down and see seals sun bathing or swimming but they did not put in an appearance for me.


At the mouth of the River Teifi is Poppit Sands which covers quite a large area and is popular with beach lovers. It also had quite a big lifeboat station.


I was disappointed to end the Pembrokeshire Coastal Walk with a two mile road walk into St. Dogmaels otherwise I can say it’s a very good long distance Path.
