UK Holidays, Short Breaks & Weekends in Wales

2018 is our Year of the Sea.

We’re celebrating Wales’ outstanding coastline and inviting you to discover epic experiences all around our shores. Start with our 870-mile Wales Coast Path which passes all manner of seascapes – thrilling,  perfect zen, and everything in between. You’ll pass hundreds of beaches, harbours, inlets and islands – while watching porpoises play and bottlenose dolphins dance in the distance.

Make this year the time to try a new coastal activity – like  kayaking, paddleboarding or coasteering. Or follow the rivers upstream and explore the inland shores of our lakes and reservoirs.

With a unique culture, warm Welsh welcome and the finest food and drink, Wales offers some of the UK’s most exciting coastal experiences of 2018.
