Limited parking at Haroldston Chins car park, constructed by the National Park Authority.  The first 400m of this walk is surfaced for wheelchairs.

The path continues south for 2.6 km before descending into Broad Haven.

The next 600m is quite level, the path then follows a series of moderate rises and falls until it reaches Black Point where the slopes are steeper.  Black Point  is a promontory fort which is slowly falling into the sea

This walk provides great views of St Brides Bay where gannets can often be seen diving for fish.  On a clear day Grassholm Island can be seen.

The walk is on high cliffs, although the path is mostly well away from the edge.
