Amroth to Pendine – Wales Coast Path

Today we took on Storm Doris and walked from Amroth to Pendine Beach. Sunshine, cloud and quite a vicious wind at times, battering us as we reached Gilman Point.

There are 441 steps in total on this stage of the Coastal path walk, but the most amazing Carmarthen coast line to distract you from zig zag path that take you up 395feet and then down again.

Looking back over our shoulders we can see Tenby and Caldy island and ahead the Gower comes into view.

Marros sand is a lengthy stretch of beach, where the Rover, a schooner carrying culm was deliberately beached, rather than sink, back in 1886.

Further along the headland you reach Morfa bychan bought by the national trust to avoid any other developments along this stretch of coast. It was here,a large deployment of troops, rehearsed the 1944 D day landings.

Over Gilman Point and we look down on the 7 mile long, golden sands of Pendine beach, scene of numerous land speed records.

Our walk ends with an all day breakfast in the Point cafe, about the only place open in Pendine , with its entertaining and chatty owner who had relocated from Merthyr.
