Wales Coast Path


There’s never been a better time to explore the magnificent coastline of Wales – because you now have unprecedented access to 870 miles of it!

Launched in May 2012, the Wales Coast Path is the world’s longest continuous coast path around a country.  It opens up a huge range of activities around the coast or within striking distance of it, offering award-winning clean beaches, varied wildlife and spectacular scenery.

There is something for everyone, from walking, cycling and horse riding to activities offering family fun and adrenaline thrills. The Path also offers a great way to discover Wales’ rich history and heritage, culture and arts and the best places to eat and drink along the coast.,
 
Stretching from the Welsh border in North Wales to Chepstow in the south, the Path was chosen by travel guide Lonely Planet as its world’s greatest region in 2012. 

Along the route, there’s a geopark, a marine nature reserve, two national parks, three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 14 designated heritage coasts, 11 national nature reserves and 23 registered Historic Landscapes. 

As Lonely Planet put it:  “How better to appreciate the shape – and soul – of a nation?”
