Springtime in Pembrokeshire is surely one of the very best times to visit and see this beautiful county in all its glory. The countryside is waking after the sleepy winter months and the clifftops and country lanes are swathed in wild flowers, the birds are in full song and the beaches are idyllic and peaceful before the summer visitors arrive.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path spans 186 miles from Amroth in the south to St. Dogmaels in the north and you will find the most spectacular sea views along any part of this coastal walk. The section from Tenby along to Manorbier provides superb views of Caldey Island and is dotted with hidden coves and pretty little beaches along the way. From Broad Haven South to Freshwater West reveals some beautiful views and rugged coastline – St Govan’s Head, Stack Rocks and The Green Bridge of Wales are just some of the delights on this section of the coastline.
On the western coast, any of the walks from Dale up to St David’s Head will give you the best views of St Brides Bay and the many islands dotted off the coast – Skokholm, Grassholm, Skomer and Ramsey. You may even catch sight of dolphins in the bay too.
Inland walks along the Daugleddau estuary in springtime are perfect for spotting wildlife and wading birds along the riverbanks and the spring flowers are a magnificent sight at this time of year.
A walk through the magical Gwaun Valley in north Pembrokeshire is especially beautiful during springtime when the ancient woodlands are waking after the winter months and come to life with the sound of woodland birds and a lush carpet of woodland flowers. The views to the Preseli Hills from here are magnificent too.
