Wales coastal path opened May 5th 2012
The Wales Coastal Path officially opened on Saturday 5th May, the path covers 870 miles of coastline, offering stunning views for all to enjoy. The new path has been developed following the success of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail and the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path. The initial plans were first revealed 6 years ago.
The path has since been developed by the Welsh Government in conjunction with the Countryside Council for Wales, 16 local authorities and two national parks. The entire path will be accessible to walkers, with some sections ideal for cyclists and people with restricted mobility. The path covers many popular coastline areas throughout North Wales, Mid Wales, West Wales and South Wales.
Some of the popular North Wales coastline areas include the Dee Estuary, the Gronant dunes, Rhyl, the Great Orme and Llandudno, the Menai Straits in Anglesey, Cemlyn Bay and Newborough Warren.
