Wales Coast Path

The Wales Coast Path travels through some of the most beautiful countryside in the world.

The path is a world first; it’s currently the only country in the world to have a continuous coastal path stretching its entire length. 2018 is our Year of the Sea, so it's a great time to explore this unique path.

There are 870 miles of path to explore. Take in the stunning scenery and pass through pretty coastal villages. Explore castles, see wildlife, enjoy sport or just relax on, or near, a beautiful beach. A record 50 sites in Wales were awarded blue flag status in 2017.

Some of the highlights:

  • Discover the places this famous Welsh writer knew well. This includes Boathouse in Laugharne, where he wrote Under Milk Wood.  

  • Cardiff Bay: see the Senedd, take a boat trip or stroll along the barrage and enjoy shopping in the Capital city.  
  • Taking a stroll along the pier or prom in Llandudno or take the cable car to see the great view.  
  • Go wildlife spotting in Pembrokeshire, where the protected waters are home to an array of species including blue whales, Risso dolphins and puffins. 

  • Getting active: sports including horse riding, golf, surfing, abseiling and paragliding. 
  • Or relax in Swansea Bay and the Gower, with four Blue Flag and four Green Coast award beaches. Port Eynon Bay was voted best British beach in 2011.
