Day Walks on the Pembrokeshire Coast features 20 classic coastal routes between 6.5 miles and 13 miles (10.4km and 20.8km) in length, suitable for hillwalkers of all abilities. Local author and walker Harri Roberts shares his favourite walks in the national park, including a meander along Bosherston Lily Ponds – a series of interconnected lakes, rich in wildlife; the 650-million-year-old sea cliffs of St Brides, studded with the less-common, upland-loving sessile oak; and retracing the steps of Wales’s patron saint, from St Davids to St Justinian’s.
The routes are in five areas: the South Pembrokeshire Coast, Daugleddau, the West Pembrokeshire Coast, the North Pembrokeshire Coast, and the Preseli Hills.
Written by a local author, each route features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps; easy-to-follow directions; details and distance and navigation info, and refreshment stops and local information.
Harri Roberts is a freelance writer, editor and translator based in Newport, Gwent. He has authored a number of Welsh walking guides, including an official guide to the Wales Coast Path (Tenby to Swansea section) and a guide to Day Walks in the Brecon Beacons (also published by Vertebrate). With his partner, Tracy, he runs an e-publishing company called camau (Welsh for ‘steps’). Together they have designed and published several electronic walking guides, including an end-to-end hike through Wales (O Fôn i Fynwy), a guide to the England Coast Path between Chepstow and Minehead, and a guide to the Via Algarviana, a long-distance trail across the Algarve region of Portugal.
