The Green Bridge of Wales is a fantastic example of a natural rock arch at Castlemartin near Pembroke.
Around 80 feet high and 66 feet long it’s the covering of vegetation on it’s surface that gives rise to the Green in the name.
What we think is great about this place is the manmade viewing platform….
…with it’s very convenient smart phone camera holders! Set up to give you the perfect shot.
How to get to the Green Bridge of Wales
Getting to the Green Bridge of Wales is not easy. It’s a good 15 minutes beyond Pembroke with it’s Castle. And the closer you get the narrower the roads become. So it will take some time. Slow down and enjoy the journey. This is a beautiful part of Pembrokeshire, with Bosherston, Barafundle, St Govan’s and Freshwater West Beach all nearby. And they are all worth a visit!

Just a short walk away, along the coast, from the Green Bridge of Wales are the magnificent Stack Rocks. Both are approximately half an hour from the popular seaside resort of Tenby and the nearest town is Pembroke.
It’s right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so it’s a great place to combine some walking. One of our favourites is the walk to St Govans from here. If you’d like to do some coast path walking check out our post on walks in Pembrokeshire and this book. We’ve got the older version and found it brilliant when we walked the whole thing. It’s battered, bruised and well thumbed but we still use it today!
We would always recommend wearing at least mid-ankle boots as a minimum on any Pembrokeshire walk as they can all be muddy, wet and/or rocky. You don’t want wet feet on a long hike and you certainly don’t want to be twisting an ankle. We’re on our second pair of these by Salomon which says a lot about how good we thought the first pair was.
Whatever the length of your walk remember to carry the right gear and perhaps most importantly a map and compass.
