Wales is the only country in the world with a footpath spanning its entire coastline — and in 2022, the Wales Coast Path is celebrating 10 years since its official launch.
To mark the occasion and celebrate the wide array of heritage sites along the 870 mile route, we have partnered with Wales Coast Path and Deiniol Tegid — a self-proclaimed Wales Coast Path walking enthusiast.
Together, we have created a series of 20 bespoke itineraries — outlining the very best coastal walking routes from which to discover 16 Welsh castles, as well as a wide selection of hillforts, stone circles and burial chambers.
By now, we’re all familiar with the health and wellbeing benefits associated with being outdoors. It’s the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of modern life — particularly where there’s sea air involved.
What’s more, 88% of Wales Coast Path visitors agree that using the path contributes to their appreciation of Wales and its culture — and we’d encourage you to experience it for yourself, using these easy-to-follow itineraries.
From the Holyhead loop in Anglesey, passing through the lesser-explored Caer Gybi Roman Fort and Holyhead Mountain Hut Circles, to routes passing through mighty fortresses such as Laugharne Castle and Chepstow Castle — the itineraries are suitable for people in all locations, of all abilities, and each come with a handy map to guide you along your way.
