Skomer Island Views Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

Skomer - Islands

Early May Walk Along the Wales Coastal Path

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path has about 90 miles of coastal walks where the land meets the sea. We walked one small section which over looks Skomer and Skokholm Islands. There is a boat which take you to the islands each day called the Dale Princess. We saw amazing spring wild flowers, birds and a curious seal which checked us out and they swam off with a splash.

We saw Marloes Sands in the distance (famous for fossil finds apparently) Marloes Mere and Terry’s award winning ice-cream van. Terry later visited the campsite offering us ice-cream but no vegan ice-cream was available so we had to turn him down.


Walk along mile after mile of wild flower lined path.

The Van Plan

Buy a van, (Or two.) Convert to a motor home then explore the UK and Europe, reaching places on the map other van travellers can not reach while enjoying vanlife in comfort.
