Walking The Wales Coastal Path

For this week’s blog post we thought we’d provide you with a few ways to recover after the Easter weekend. Doubtless, many of our readers have spent this weekend indulging in one or two Easter eggs and perhaps a hearty dinner; with this in mind we thought we’d list some of our favourite walks dotted along the Wales Coastal Path.

The Wales Coastal Path is itself one big long walk, running along the entire coastline of the country, but we didn't want to suggest that as an individual walk. The path was the world’s first coastal path to cover an entire country, stretching 870 miles from Chepstow to Queensferry.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

Recently named the third-best coastal path not in the UK, but in the world! The Pembrokeshire Coastal path was the only British entry on the list of top 10 walks and with good reason. The pathway stands out for it’s ease of access for those of any age and ability. The path attracts millions of walkers each year and in the springtime it is complemented by the sights and sounds of spring.

The Ystwyth Trail

Connecting the seaside university town of Aberystwyth with Tregaron in the Northern Teifi Valley. The pathways allow walkers the freedom to combine various walks at the numerous connections to other paths that feature along the path. The trail involves a few steady gradients which may be a little challenging for some but the views form the top are definitely worth the effort.

The Gower
The stunning Gower has been a favourite among those outdoors appreciators for years and when you look at it’s credentials it is no wonder. The path stretches from the city of Swansea to the stunning coastline of the Gower Peninsula whose beaches have won many awards. The area boasts an astonishing 10 nature reserves, 24 Wildlife Trust reserves, 32 Sites of Special Scientific Interest and five Special Areas of Conservation. You are certainly spoilt for choice at the Gower.
