On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Freshwater West to Broadhaven

The walk starts at Freshwater West, a beautiful wind swept beach and one of the most consistent surf spots in Wales, there are parking and toilet facilities. It can hold waves up to around 6ft, however this beach has very strong rip currents and quicksands. At Castlemartin the coastpath takes you inland to avoid the artillery ranges. You have choices as to whether to carry on along the inland route along roads to Bosherton and then on to Broadhaven or when the range walks are open to strike south to Stack Rocks to pick up the coast around St Govans Head. We recommend the latter. The natural arch, the Green Bridge of Wales is located just to the west of Stack Rocks where this a good observation point for photo opportunities. The 13th century St Govans chapel nestling in the cliffs has been restored and well worth a visit. The walk ends at Broadhaven hosting golden sands and dunes with parking and toilet facilities, if time permits walk around the Lily Ponds.
