A short circular walk of 4 miles from the lighthouses at Nash Point to St Donats can be accessed along the cliff tops. The walk covers part of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast path with dramatic views of the coast. The going is flat and easy although the cliff-tops can be muddy after rain. The walk goes past the Horse Shoe Inn at Marcross. Refreshments are sold at the Nash Point car park and there are toilets in the small building when it is open.
Nash Point Lighthouse
The Nash Point Lighthouse was designed by James Walker, the chief engineer for Trinity House. First lit in 1832, the lighthouse was electrified in 1968. Nash Point Lighthouse became the last manned lighthouse in Wales, and was automated in 1998.
Trinity House provides public tours of the lighthouse.
