This year Visit Wales’, Year of the Sea will be helping to celebrate the sea and other waterways of Wales.
The Wales Coast Path, opened in 2012. It’s the world’s first continuous coastal path, meaning you can now explore 870 miles of the Welsh coast. Its travels as close as possible to the sea at all times. Travelling from North Wales and the Dee Estuary to the South Wales and the Severn Estuary. Along the way you’ll booking out over the Irish sea and Lundy. Wales is proud to have 230 beaches and 50 islands all with unique and beautiful geology and tales that make Wales legendary.

186 miles of the path is located in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It boasts some other the best views in the UK (although we are a little biased). The path stretches from St. Dogmaels in the North, just outside the county in Cardigan. To the very South of Pembrokeshire in Amroth. It passes a number of wonderful places along the way, all with their own unique character. Villages like Newport, Fishguard and Dale. Harbours such as Lower Town, Stackpole and Solva. Islands like, Ramsey, Skomer and Caldey. Beaches, for instance like Poppit Sands, Ynys Barry and Barafundle.
