Wales Coast Path

Discover the shape of a nation on this unique coast path around our shores

Visit Wales


The Wales Coast Path provides a continuous walking route around the coastline of Wales.

It was opened in 2012 and is the world’s first continuous coastal path.

From the outskirts of Chester in the north to Chepstow in the south, the path’s 870 miles take in some of Britain’s best coastline.

The route encompasses dramatic cliffs, remote bays, popular beaches, abundant wildlife, attractive towns and villages, major cities and historical monuments.
