When love is in the air, here's where – and why – to watch the sun go down with your sweetheart

There’s no better ending to a bracing afternoon walk with your significant other in mid-winter than a glorious sunset – before retiring to a cosy pub or cottage. As 25th January is the day of St Dwynwen, Wales’ patron saint of lovers, it’s the perfect time for a romantic stroll – and one of our trio of walks even takes you to Anglesey, the land of St Dwynwen's birth. 

Our sunset strolls are all set on the west coast of Wales for the best possible view of the sun dipping below the waves. Our first walk at Wooltack Point in south Pembrokeshire allows you to gaze out towards the islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm and across St Brides Bay as you watch the sun go down; walk two offers fantastic panoramas of Cardigan Bay and the Irish Sea from Dinas Head near Newport, Pembrokeshire; and our third walk takes you out to Llanddwyn Island – which is named after St Dwynwen. Just click on the following route numbers for print-ready PDFs...

Route 1 - This stroll around a former deer park is short and easy but has stacks to offer, including dramatic island views, spectacular geology and lots of seals 

Route 2 - Dinas Island (a headland) offers marvellous sunset views across Cardigan Bay – on a clear day you can see all the way to the Llyn Peninsula 

Route 3 - Walk in the footsteps of Wales’ patron saint of lovers, St Dwynwen, on Anglesey’s atmospheric coastline (pictured above)
