Day 2 Amroth - Lydstep12.4 Miles / 20 Km 6-8 Hrs 650 Metres
Today’s hike offers varied and beautiful scenery, and the first few kilometers are relatively easy as the trail alternates between the shoreline, woodland and cliff top. Once past the little seaside resort of Saundersfoot, the trail follows grassy cliff top paths and wooded valleys to Tenby offering some ups and downs, before coming down from the cliffs again to the golden sands of the charming little seaside town of Tenby. Passing the last of Tenby’s golden sand beaches, the trail climbs back up to the cliff tops and then follows a relatively easy, grassy paths along the limestone cliffs towards Skrinkle Haven, revealing more small signs of industrialisation from centuries past, which once gave this coastline such a different character. Heading towards Lydstep, keep an eye out for the remains of an old limestone kiln to your left and then an impressive and steep-sided blow hole to your right, before you descend towards Lydstep beach.
Day 3 Lydstep - Bosherston13 Miles / 21 Km 7-9 Hrs 670 Metres
From Lydstep, the trail climbs back up to the cliff tops and continues to Skrinkle Haven. The path begins to feel more rugged and there are more ups and downs as the trail leads around some more military buildings and back to the cliff edge to continue towards Manorbier Beach. From the beach, with the impressive Manorbier castle just visible to the right, the trail quickly regains the cliff tops. There is plenty of cliff top scenery and make sure to keep an eye out for the impressive strata, ridges and fissures in the sandstone cliffs, with a range of colours. The trail continues along the sand dunes at the back of Freshwater East, before climbing once again to the clifftops towards Stackpole and the lovely Barafundle beach. From Barafundle the trail climbs once again to the top of the cliffs and continues along Stackpole Head before dropping down again to the beach at Broadhaven.
