Pwllgwaelod is one of the starting points for a popular three mile walk along the Pembrokeshire National Park Coastal Footpath around Dinas Head. The Head is also known as Dinas Island because it is separated from the mainland by a deep valley with a stream running through, so the “sound” between them is only a couple of feet wide for most of its one mile length. From Pwllgwaelod the walker has a steep climb up the cliffside to the 465-feet high triangulation station on Pen-y-Fan.
Pwllgwaelod’s counterpart beach on the other side of the valley is Cwm-yr-Eglwys.
The walk is well worth the effort, particularly for wildlfe lovers, for the high cliffs, overlooking Fishguard Bay, present beautiful views and frequent sightings of chough, fulmar and peregrine falcon.
