Wales Coast Path
The Wales Coast Path (Welsh: Llwybr Arfordir Cymru) is a long distance footpath which follows the whole of the coastline of Wales. It opened on 5 May 2012, and offers a 870 mile long route from Chepstow in the south to Queensferry in the north.
Wales is the first country in the world to provide a dedicated footpath along its entire coastline. The Path runs through eleven National Nature Reserves and other nature reserves, including those managed by The Wildlife Trusts or Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
