We are used to welcoming walkers to Wales!
Our footpaths come in all shapes and sizes: rough and smooth, long and short, easy and exhausting. We have gentle lakeside and forest strolls, trails to the peaks of Snowdon and serious challenges for steely outdoor enthusiasts.
But it’s not all mountains – there’s also fabulous coastal walking that just got even better with the opening of a world’s first - the Wales Coast Path. The sheer size and brilliance of the Path makes it unlike any other in the world, and whether you want to attempt the entire distance as the ultimate endurance test, or are simply looking for a wander through the countryside, this glorious path and its coast is not to be missed.
One of the great things about the path is that it can easily be enjoyed in bite size chunks if you’re looking to admire the views without enduring the challenge. The Welsh coastline has many contrasts and really does offer something for everyone. From cliff top strolls to estuarine wanders, picturesque fishing villages to vibrant cities, industrial heritage to unconquered castles, desolate windswept beaches to bustling seaside. Along the way are 41 beaches, 18 castles, and 12 nature reserves not to mention countless attractions and activities.
The Path not only takes you through the Welsh landscape, it takes you through its heritage and its communities.
