Pembrokeshire Coast Path: Newgale to Broad Haven Walk

Newgale to Broad Haven Walk – Pembrokeshire Coast Path, St Bride’s Bay walk from Newgale to Broad Haven

Start of the walk:

Newgale Beach (Newgale sands) 

GPS: 51°51’14.8″N 5°07’27.1″W (51.854100, -5.124186) – as we were staying in Haverfordwest to get to the starting point, we took a 9 am bus no 411 from Haverfordwest bus station to Newgale. The driver stopped at the crossroads and we were right there at the beach where is the beginning of our walk. While walking along with the shingles we eventually stopped for a while to take some photos:

After about 10 minutes of slow walk we were already approaching the cliffs:

Cliffs and path above the Newgale sands, we are walking towards Broad Haven

On the way to Nolton Haven – just passing Rickets Head and Roaring Cave, a short lunch break with a views

Rickets Head – gorgeous and mighty rock formation

Rickets Head – a rocky outcrop in this lovely rugged coastline (see more photos)

Continuing with the walk along cliffs, we approached Nolton Haven:

Nolton Haven

 – a small bay, surrounded by tall cliffs, featuring a nested village with just half a dozen houses and a lovely sandy beach. I can only imagine how nice it must be here in the summers.

The beach is great for dog walking

We passed along the cliffs above Madoc’ Haven, North Haven and Druidston Haven

It is very unlikely that you will need a map for this walk, but it is fun to follow your path, know exactly where you are and read names of topographic features along the route.

Some lovely views – cliffs above Druidston Haven that we just passed by:

On the other side of the path is the fence of beautiful countryside with farms, animals and charming farmhouses:

In the mid-afternoon, after about 5 hrs of slow walking we approached

Broad Haven

End of the walk:

Broad Haven beach

The beach in Broad Haven when we arrived: it was low tide and the beach was busy with dog walkers and surfers
