Visit Wales have declared 2018 as “Year of the Sea” to celebrate the magnificent Welsh coastline. If you click on the link here you will be able to watch a short film from Visit Wales promoting this. Wales is the first country in the world to provide a dedicated footpath that runs the length of its coastline – all 870 miles of it.
Here in Pembrokeshire we are proud to share our home with 186 miles of this footpath. From St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.
Lying almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park — Britain’s only truly coastal National Park – the trail displays an array of coastal flowers and bird life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present. This link will take you to the Pembrokeshire National Park website where you can download maps of all the trails.
Here at White Gate Caravan Park we are perfectly situated for celebrating the Year of the Sea and exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coastline. We are within easy walking distance of five different beaches – Amroth, Wiseman’s Bridge, Coppet Hall, Saundersfoot and Glen Beach. There are more a bit further beyond for people who enjoy a more challenging walk including Monkstone and Tenby beaches which can be reached by following the coastal path. The coastal bus stops directly outside the park gates which will take you to Amroth or on to Tenby and from there you can hop on the Coastal Cruiser service to explore the coastline beyond. If you prefer to use your own transport there are excellent road networks connecting the whole county and White Gate Caravan Park is an ideal base from which to do so.
If you need more convincing that Wales is THE place for a beach holiday this year then have a look at the recent list compiled this week by “Wales Online” of the “23 hidden beaches so beautiful you will be delighted you found them”. 12 of the ones on the list are in Pembrokeshire so really, do I need to say any more?
