The Wales Coast Path is jam packed with fantastic views, glorious wildlife entwined with a rich and vibrant Welsh culture steeped in history and folklore.

The bilingual Wales Coast Path app brings together these unique elements using cutting edge technology to inspire you and your families to discover more about this coastal route, one of a few in the world to follow an entire nation’s coastline.

Bringing the path alive 

This free, easy to use app is designed to work on mobile devices, like smart phones and tablet.  It also has some fun child friendly activities which we think they will love, come rain or shine!  Some aspects of the app are designed to work exclusively with information boards especially installed at the seven locations.

Try our walks with a difference

We've also created special walks on the path using the app for an extra special experience where the path meets technology.  You can find more details about our "family walks with a difference" on our Itineraries page.  

The app has lots of interesting (and sometimes surprising) facts and features about the seven locations.
