Great walk around the headland but avoid the ice cream shack at Cwm Yr Eglwys!

This shack/van should not have a five star hygiene rating. The woman server had no gloves On. A clear broken and cut skin on her fingers and she handled the ice cream touching it and pressing it into the cone.
Felt too awkward to say something but please please someone tell this woman she needs to wear gloves!
Also totally overpriced with a tiny scoop and cone for 3.50. Which I didn’t feel like eating after it was manhandled by her cut hand!!! Stinking dirty.

Spent a lovely few days here and the surrounding areas, walked around Dinas Headland - be sure to keep to the upper path as the lower one is really dangerous; played golf, north of Newport visited the local pubs

What a discovery! A fantastic circular walk, with breath taking views. Be ready for some steep bits and narrow paths, but nothing a confident, reasonably fit walker could not tackle.

An amazing walk - so good we did it twice. Once clockwise and once anti-clockwise. The whole circular walk is 3 miles with a steep but rewarding climb to the top. The days we walked it were sunny and windy. This would probably not be a walk for the faint hearted in serious wind as the path does go near some vertical cliff faces! There are two choices of path near a section near the “needles”. The views are stunning and the pint in the Sailors Rest was most enjoyable.

We followed the national trust map from their site and it was brilliant. Parked by Pwllgwaelod Beach and climbed clockwise. The climb up at the start was not terribly difficult however it was a sunny day. I imagine it would be quite slippery in parts if raining, and may wind some more than others! You eventually come out the bottom by Cwm yr Eglwys, where there is a busy little beach, ice cream van, public toilets and water activities. We did the National trust walk in anticipation of food and a pint at the old sailors. Unfortunately they were not able to serve food that day and ended up closing early. Saw plenty of family with kids and older walkers enjoying the walk. We stopped for a lot of photos so the whole walk took 2 hours. If you park near the old sailors, there is a cream tea and scones place in an art studio (they do cheese ones) up the hill which was lovely, however not on google maps.

Just one of the best walks ever. We were lucky to stay on the campsite in the middle of the island with stunning views, The circular walk is just spectacular with 2 coves, one with a pub doing food and the other with an ice cream / snack van.

For anyone wondering about the difficulty of this walk, I'm 75 and not fit, though I'm fairly slight. I found it very manageable though I was glad of my walking pole on the steeper bits. It's probably best to do it clockwise from Pwllgaelod so you get the steeper bits over with first and finish with the flat stretch back from Cwm y Eglwys

We got what we ultimately agreed was good advice to go down to the parking lot at the north end of the trail (turn off the A487 at the church before the Freemasons Hotel), pray for parking in the “trust the motorist to pay” parking lot, and hike from there over and down to the other trail head at the Old Sailors Inn. The steepest part of the hike is best done going up not down. And it is pretty rigorous, taking about 1.5 hours if you move briskly. But you are RICHLY rewarded with a 360 degree view at the apex of the bluff. It is a great way to experience the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park if you don’t have days to spend in the area.

A nice walk on the path for beautiful coastal views. The path is well marked and the terrain not too difficult. I noticed the only children up here were securely attached to their parents!

We started at Cwm yr Eglwys where there is a car park which usually charges. Alternatively you could park at Pwllgwaelod which is free. Toilets available at both locations. The path essentially circles the island so there are fine views for most of the way. But note that it climbs to 142m. Its perfectly doable for most people- we met a number of families with young children and parties of older folk on our visit. Most of the walk is on National Trust land. If you need it there is a pub at Pwllgwaelod. And there is an almost flat and paved path between Cwm yr Eglwys and Pwllgwaelod.
