Solva to Newgale Walk
This walk follows a lovely section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from Solva to Newgale. The route runs for about 4 miles along a waymarked, undulating coastal path.
The walk starts from Solva Harbour and heads south towards St Elvis Rock. You then head east to the headland at Dinas Fawr. There is a footpath that heads out across the headland but do take care if you follow this path. There's great views towards the islands of Green Scar and Ramsey Island from here. Pretty heather can also be found in this area at the right times of year.
The route continues east past the sister headland of Dinas Fach, before passing a series of caves and arriving at Newgale. Here you'll find a wonderful 2 mile stretch of beach which is popular with windsurfers, surfers and canoeists throughout the summer months. Newgale also marks the boundary between English and Welsh-speaking Pembrokeshire, with the next beach north of Newgale being called Pen-y-Cwm.
To continue your walking in the area you could try the Solva Harbour Walk. The Solva to St Davids Coastal Walk takes you in the other direction along the coast path.
