Pembrokeshire. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was designated in 1952 and remains the only UK national park recognised primarily for its coastline. It boasts some of the most spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife in Britain. It stretches from the resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby in the south to Cardigan in the north an area of 243 sq miles. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a 180 mile walking trail.
This is part of an area called The Devil’s Cauldron; a collapsed cave. The arch is on the west side and is a narrow channel into the cauldron. It is on the costal path a few hundred yards east of the parking area for The Green Bridge of Wales.
Caution. The road to the parking area for the coastal path and the arch crosses a military firing and tank range. The road is often closed but is generally open at weekends and public holidays.
The arch has a span of about 15 ft and a height of about 90 ft.
