Nash Point

4 miles (6.5 km)

This coastal circular walk in the Vale of Glamorgan visits Nash Point Lighthouse on the Monknash Coast. The stretch of coast is popular with hikers with cliff top views, nice beaches and a visit to theGrade II listed lighthouse, which dates from 1831-32.
You can park at the Nash Point car park, just south of Marcross. From here it is a short walk to the coastal path and the lighthouse. You follow the path east to St Donat's Point, with nice views of St Donat's Bay, Tresilian Bay and the Bristol Channel. The route then heads inland, towards the medieval castle of St Donat's. After rounding the castle, you follow public footpaths through the countryside towards Marcross where you pick up the Marcross Brook to take you back to the car park.
You can extend the walk by heading east towards Llantwit Major beach.
