Wales Coast Path
Wales Coast Path

The Wales Coast Path has launched a series of new self-guided, themed walking itineraries covering the entire 870-mile trail, to help visitors discover new and exciting ways to explore the Welsh coastline.

The new self-guided themed itineraries have been specifically designed by a network of officers who spend their days managing and enjoying the path. Among the routes are a selection of short, family-friendly augmented reality walks, and a series of longer three-day itineraries developed to provide flexibility for visitors to go completely off-grid, test their fitness, or enjoy a family weekend activity. Showcasing Wales’ beaches, estuaries, cliffs, woodlands and hills, themes include ‘Wow Walks’, ‘Mindfulness Walks’, and ‘Culture Heritage Walks’.


New for 2020 are walking itineraries focused on mindfulness, perfectly suited for those who want to focus on reconnecting with nature, family and themselves. These itineraries highlight the positive benefits of walking whilst showcasing Wales’ beaches, biodiversity, woodlands and hills, with a selection of routes crafted to offer a range of walks for all abilities.

The itineraries can be downloaded via the Wales Coast Path app and include information such as maps, distance covered and public transport links.
