Dinas Head Heritage Coast
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.
Area Countryside attractions:
Pembrokeshire Coast National
A gently rolling plateau overlooking the rugged coastline. This
is good birding area, with sanctuaries at Grasholm, Skomer,
and Skokholm Islands, while Ramsey Island is renowned for its
large grey seal population. More
Pembrokeshire Coast Path
The 186 mile path follows the heritage coast and takes in the
entire length of the Pembrokeshire National Park. The walking
is superb, the scenery breathtaking, as the path climbs along
cliffs and beside sandy bays. Thankfully, this trail is more
sparsely traveled than most other long-distance paths in Britain.
St. David's Peninsula Heritage
The heritage coast stretches 50 miles, following the rugged
contours of St. David's Peninsula from St. Brides Bay to Fishguard.
The peninsula blends history and scenery to better effect than
just about any area of Britain. More
