Long or short walks?
Whether you choose to walk the whole coast path in one go, in occasional sections, or a few miles at a time, you’re in for a real treat. There’s something new around every corner, and you’ll discover plenty of amazing places that can only be reached on foot. Visually stunning and rich in both history and wildlife, the coast path promises ever-changing views, soaring cliffs and spacious beaches, sea caves and arches, wildflowers, seabirds, seals, whales and dolphins, as well as castles, cromlechs, saltmarshes, coves and coastal pubs. It’s a genuinely special landscape.
“The Wales Coast Path took me on an amazing, ever-changing coastal adventure. I promise, you’ll never look at Wales in the same light again.”
Steve Webb, early end-to-end walker, June 2012
Official Guides to the Wales Coast Path
The Official Guidebooks for the Wales Coast Path break the complete path down into seven main sections each of which is then sub-divided into carefully-planned ‘Day Sections’ — usually averaging around 10-15 miles each. These typically start and finish either in, or near easy-to-reach towns, villages or settlements, many of them on bus routes, and with shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and places to stay nearby.
The Official Guides are the only series of guidebooks recognised by Natural Resources Wales – the creators and managers of the Path – and contain everything walkers need to walk and enjoy the Wales Coast Path.
