not only covers the coastline and beaches of North & South Pembrokeshire, it also includes the Preseli Hills and the areas round the Daugleddau Estuary and the Carew, Cleddau & Cresswell rivers.
Is is also the only truly coastal national park in the whole of the UK and one of only three national parks in Wales. Boasting some of the most spectacular coastal views the UK has to offer it also contains mile upon mile of wooded, moorland and mountain walks.
have made strenuous efforts to make all parts the Park accessible to walkers without the necessity of taking your car.
The longest and most spectacular walk is the Coastal Path that runs from St Dogmaels in the North to Amroth in the South, a distance of over 180 miles. The route is generally along the cliff tops, so the views are always stunning. It is not a particularly easy walk in that some sections involve a fair bit of climbing. However, the creation of several tourist bus routes (see next section) makes it possible for you to walk just a short section each day.
Over the past seven years, five new bus services have been introduced: Poppit Rocket, Strumble Shuttle, Celtic Coaster and the Puffin Shuttle and Coastal Cruiser. These are in addition to the normal local bus services. Generally hailed as a success story, they carried 60,000 passengers in 2005.
The entire length of the coastline is now served by public transport, so that you can ride to your destination and walk back or walk there and ride back.
The "Puffin" is the name of the Coastal Bus and the "Green Dragon" is the one that serves the Preseli Hills. The "Bloomfield Walkers" covers the little villages of the Cleddau & Cresswell rivers.
Finally, a rather unique venture, the "Day tripper" takes you to 11 attractions around Tenby & Saundersfoot. As Tenby is largely pedestrianised now in the Summer, there is a "Park and Ride" service as a further incentive for you to leave your car behind.
The Coastal Path is easily the most well publicised, but there are a lot of other possibilities in the Park:
