Hiking in Wales


On a previous vacation we hiked parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. We wanted to return and hike some more. This time we did a day hike from Porthgain to Trefin and back. We also did an overnight from St. Davids to Solva. After spending the night in a B&B we rode the bus back to St. Davids. We spent the day wondering around St. Davids before driving south to Gower.  Our last hike in Wales was Rhossili Bay and Worms Head.

Porthgain to Trefin

Harbour Lights Gallery. All the building in Porthgain are like this, lots of plants and colorful.


White beacon on top of the cliff overlooking the harbor.


View of the cliffs. The whole day we had cliff views like this.


Stile through a stone fence.


Small stone circle along the trail.


The trail is neatly trimmed.


The bay just before Trefin. Trefin was our lunch destination and turn around point.

St. Davids to Solva

Coastline view on our hike from St Davids to Solva. The coast was rugged and the water beautiful shades of blue.


The trail - every where you turned the views were fabulous.


The trail follows the cliff tops for most of the distance we traveled.


The inland views were great too.


A colorful footpath sign.

The Harbor Inn. We had a cool drink at the end of the hike.


St. Davids is full of colorful restaurants and galleries.
