Solva is a pretty village, with an equally attractive harbour, nestling in a deep valley on the Pembrokeshire coast about 4 miles east of St. David's.

We walked around the village, before setting off on our coast walk, looking at it's pretty colour-washed cottages, seen here with the River Solva, and the colourful shops.

To get onto the coast path going west we had to walk through the harbour on it's west side where the path climbs up onto the cliff top.

This view is at the lower level before we started to climb.

After a short climb out of Solva Harbour we arrive, once again, on the coast path on the cliff tops. On the horizon in the distance beyond the headland we can just see Ramsey Island.

There are numerous little bays like this along this stretch of the coast.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path varies tremendously along it's length and this flat, wide, grassy path must be as easy as it gets.
