Wales Coast Path - North Wales

Outdoor Activities North Wales

We are used to welcoming walkers to Wales - and not just super-fit enthusiasts, but all sorts of leisure walkers, weekend walkers and family walkers who just want to ramble about the scenic coast and countryside. Our footpaths come in all shapes and sizes: rough and smooth, long and short, easy and exhausting. We have gentle lakeside and forest strolls, trails to the peaks of Snowdon and serious challenges for steely outdoor enthusiasts.

But it’s not all mountains – there’s also fabulous coastal walking that just got even better with the opening of a world's first - the Wales Coast Path. The sheer size and brilliance of the Path makes it unlike any other in the world, and whether you want to attempt the entire distance as the ultimate endurance test, or are simply looking for a wander through the countryside, this glorious path and its coast is not to be missed.

The rugged mountains of north Wales give way to the stunning shores - almost 200 miles of it! Big beaches, wild cliffs, sheltered harbours and secluded bays all available for you to enjoy. The Wales Coast Path offers spectacular scenery from soaring cliffs to sandy bays and contrasting atmospheres from big cities to tiny fishing ports. Enjoy views across the Menai Straight to Anglesey and take in the two historic bridges that connect the island to mainland Wales. Take in the stunning natural beauty tucked away amongst the cliffs on the north coast, walk beside charming candy-coloured beach huts and catch a glimpse of the seals and dolphins splashing about.

One of the great things about the path is that it can easily be enjoyed in bite size chunks if you're looking to admire the views without enduring the challenge. The Welsh coastline has many contrasts and really does offer something for everyone. From cliff top strolls to estuarine wanders, picturesque fishing villages to vibrant cities, industrial heritage to unconquered castles, desolate windswept beaches to bustling seaside. Along the way are 41 beaches, 18 castles, and 12 nature reserves not to mention countless attractions and activities. The Path not only takes you through the Welsh landscape, it takes you through its heritage and its communities.
