This landmark project saw Wales take centre stage when, upon completion, the Wales Coast Path became the longest continuous path along a nation’s coastline. Its creation, however, was not about breaking records; it was about creating long lasting recreational, tourism and economic opportunities. The Wales Coast Path is one of the most important coastal developments in recent years and its story is only just beginning.
From time to time it is necessary to temporarily divert sections of the Wales Coast Path - mostly for reasons of public safety following severe weather, landslides or construction work.

One of the beauties of the path is that it can easily be enjoyed in bitesize chunks. For most of us, it’s simply a matter of deciding which location is easiest to get to from our homes or will fit into holiday plans. For some, nothing less than covering the full 870 mile path will do.
The world has embraced the Wales Coast Path and our story is travelling far and wide – this landmark project has gone international!
