The Wales Coast Path

The Wales Coast Path

by: Paddy Dillon
A single guidebook to walking the whole Wales Coast Path - 1408km (870 miles) the length of Wales from Chester to Chepstow, including Anglesey, described in 57 stages. The route passes through the Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire National Parks and many AONBs and can be linked with the Offa's Dyke Path for a complete circuit of Wales.
The Welsh Coast Path at 1408km, is the longest trail in Britain, as it traces the coastline from Chester to Chepstow. This guide divides the Path into 9 geographical areas and 57 stages, ranging from between 15 to 32km in length. The names of Anglesey, the Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, Pembrokeshire, and the Gower conjure ideas of spectacular scenery, world-famous geology, seabirds and wildlife, all of which can be explored with this guide.

Opened in 2012, the entire coast is now accessible and waymarked; a true adventure along some of the best coastline in the British Isles. Full of variety; from cities and castles to sandy beaches, tiny harbours to the crash of waves against rugged cliffs, the Path offers new sights at every point. Never straying far from the sea, or climbing higher than 300m, the Path can nevertheless offer strenuous walking as well as gentle rambles.

Alongside detailed route descriptions and colour OS maps for each stage, the guidebook provides a range of practical information, whether you plan to walk the Path in full, or as a series of day-walks. Travel information, advice on accommodation and planning, as well as details on the history, wildlife and geology of the coast ensure that this is an ideal companion to uncovering the Welsh coast on foot. The book is illustrated with numerous colour photographs. There are four appendices giving a Route summary table, facilities along the route, topographical glossary and useful contacts
