From Manorbier to Pendine
A walk in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park from Manorbier, with its Norman castle to ancient Lydstep Haven and on to colourful Tenby’s south beach. This is followed by a rugged stretch of coast with woodland and open countryside to the harbour village of Saundersfoot. An unusual stretch is next; 200-year-old tramway tunnels take you to Amroth with a short, strenuous walk above vast golden sands, bridging Pembrokeshire with Carmarthenshire.
