This short and spectacular ride into the heart of the popular seaside resort of Saundersfoot takes you from a quiet wooded valley, along a wonderful raised promenade up above the crashing waves of Carmarthen Bay and through a series of short tunnels carved into the cliffs. The path is level and well-surfaced for the whole length.
The ride starts at the Ironworks Heritage Centre at Stepaside, where there is ample parking, and winds through the trees alongside the stream to the beach at Wisemans Bridge. It then turns and follows the beach along the promenade that used to carry the Saundersfoot Railway, originally built to transport iron and coal but now busy with walkers and cyclists enjoying the stunning views.
The approach to Saundersfoot goes through three tunnels and along The Strand to the harbour where there are shops, cafes and restaurants. This route is very popular with walkers, especially in summer, so please be considerate when sharing the path and dismount when you go through the tunnels.
