The pretty village of Solva is at the centre of eight miles of unspoilt coastal scenery stretching from Newgale in the east to St Davids in the west.

The Gribin is a rocky headland guarding the entrance to Solva Harbour, giving spectacular views along the coast and across St Brides Bay. This walk is a perfect complement to time spent in Solva’s interesting shops and galleries, and there are plenty of places in the village to refresh yourself afterwards.

For those looking for a longer walk, the shuttle bus between Newgale and St Davids lets you walk the whole stretch in a day, or half of it in a half-day.

Did you know that we have a bespoke package designed especially for walkers and hikers?
