Pembrokeshire occupies the far south western extremity of Wales with the ocean on three sides. Its coastline is complex and convoluted - a succession of cliffs and coves, inlets and islands, stacks and skerries and the great drowned estuary of Milford Haven. Many justly claim this coastal scenery to be among the finest in the World.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, an official National Trail designated in 1970, closely follows this coast from Amroth in the south to St.Dogmael's in the north - a distance of 186 miles - almost entirely within a National Park.

As the meeting place of Celts, Irish, Vikings, Welsh, Normans, English and Flemings, Pembrokeshire is steeped in history and thanks in part to its fascinating geology its shores are especially rich in distinctive flora and fauna. Nowhere is the Coast Path far from historic sites and charming villages or the fascinating small towns of St David's, Pembroke and Tenby.

Flavoured by the moods of the ocean, this book captures the atmosphere of the Coast Path and the ever-changing landscapes, seascapes and the settlements through which it passes. It will evoke treasured memories for those who already know Pembrokeshire, and enthuse those for whom that pleasure is yet to come.
