Want to see the entire sweep of the west Pembrokeshire Coast? Then try this walk for spectacular views…

From the top of Carn Penberry you can see the whole of west Pembrokeshire laid out before you from St Davids Head to Ramsey and across St Brides Bay to Skomer.

Penberry is the first in a sequence of tors made of hard igneous rock along the northern coast of the St Davids peninsula. (The others are Carn Treliwyd, Carn Perfedd, Carnedd Lleithr and Carn Llidi.).

When the sea-level was much higher nearly 70 million years ago, they were islands.

The sea wore away the surrounding softer rocks to create the wave-cut plateau that now makes up most of Pembrokeshire.
