Arguably one of the most spectacular parts of the coastal path, this stage takes in the craggy coast of southern Ceredigion and northern Pembrokeshire. Llangrannog’s lovely beach is home to Carreg Bica – a rock which, legend has it, used to be a giant’s tooth.
This stage also includes a section of path specifically designed for wheelchairs along the eastern end of Aberporth Bay with spectacular cliff top views of the Ceredigion coastline. Aberporth is also a great place for dolphin spotting. Pass the Witches’ Cauldron – one of the most striking geological features on this stretch of coast, a collapsed cave forming a huge crater – and the tiny village of Cwm Yr Eglwys, whose church was washed away by a storm, leaving behind only one wall and a graveyard. Continue around the rocky St David’s Head with its Neolithic structures to the sweeping beach of Whitesands Bay.
This stage will be walked by Jim Salmon and his team.
