Happy 2nd birthday Wales Coast Path
Over the bank holiday weekend our very own coast path will be two years old. We're proud to have the world's first coast path to cover its entire coastline. Starting in the north at the River Dee and ends at the River Wye in the south. Hugging 870 miles of beautiful Welsh coast. So if you're in the mood for a casual stroll or have the time to go the distance pay a visit to the Wales Coast Path.
