Dinas Head Heritage Coast

Description:
The headland at Dinas is one of the most spectacular along the Pembroksehire Coast (which is saying a great deal). At 463 feet in height, the cliffs at Dinas Head provide excellent views across Fishguard Bay to the south and Newport Bay to the north. The headland is under the care of the National Trust.

In May and June the woodlands here are thick with bluebells, and a nature trail wanders for 2 miles along the River Tywi.

Dinas Head is contained within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs along the length of the heritage coast. Heather and gorse carpet the headland in late summer and fall.
