We were so pleased with our visit to South Pembrokeshire in 2019 that we decided to spend another week in Pembrokeshire in April 2021 with the aim of exploring the northern coast. We based ourselves at the foot of the Preseli Hills (south side), a good choice which enabled us to spend a day in the hills and was not too far from the coast. We walked a bit of the coast path every day, covering the distance between Carreg Onnen Bay (west of Strumble Head) and Mwnt (east of Cardigan) twice, in both directions, as we always had to go back to our car at the end of the day. We were extremely lucky with the weather; our last day was the only one with overcast skies, so we took the car and drove to St David's where the weather was sunnier. We visited the site (unfortunately the cathedral was closed for sight-seeing because of Covid-19 restrictions) and we enjoyed a good walk along the coast to Maen Bachau on the Treginnis Peninsula. The path led us through the towns of Fishguard, Newport and Cardigan: we enjoyed the harbour of Fishguard and the sight of the daily ferry to Ireland, Cardigan was a very pleasant little town, and Newport was the only one with a nice beach, a welcome stretch of flat walking after all the wild ups and downs of this part of the coast.
