Places to go

The Wales Coast Path not only takes you through the Welsh landscape, it takes you through its heritage and its communities

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 seasides. Whether you’re here for a single hour or an entire weekend, the Wales Coast Path has a lot to offer.



The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) is waiting for you to discover its riches. World class geology and picturesque beaches are found along this glorious coastline. The island is linked to the mainland by the stunning Menai Suspension Bridge built in 1826 by Thomas Telford.

Starting at Porthmadog in the north, down to the historic market town of Cardigan in the south, this section of the path is full of picturesque towns and villages in between stunning beaches.

Carmarthenshire Bay is a coastline of great contrasts and takes in a range of habitats including fresh water marshes, salt marshes, sand dunes, pine forests and coastal commons all supporting a spectacular array of flora and fauna.

This southerly coastline takes in the city landscapes of Swansea, Cardiff and Newport, with magnificent views of the Severn estuary which has the second highest tidal range in the world at 49 feet and is home to the Severn bore.
