Celebrate The Welsh Coastal Paths 5th Birthday

The Welsh Coastal Path turns 5 today!

Fancy taking endurance training a different route this weekend? Why not try a coastal path walk?


The Welsh Coastal Path is the first of its kind, covering a whole country!
This path has only recently been mapped on Google Street View, now that isn’t an excuse to simply look at the famous route on your phone or computer and not get out there and explore it yourself!

This Country-length walk attracts 2.8 million walkers and covers an astonishing 870 miles.
Now you might not be up to the full 870 miles..(that certainly is some endurance event) So why not try some beautiful snippets of the Welsh Coastal Path in Pembrokeshire!

Pembrokeshires Coastal Path alone covers 186 miles that passes 58 beaches and 14 harbours and a coastal bus service covering it’s entire path…pretty impressive for little old Pembrokeshire.

So celebrate The Welsh Coastal Path’s birthday and take a walk on the beautiful side, and take in the coastline, rugged cliffs and views of world renowned beaches.
