Coastal access and the Wales Coast Path
The Wales Coast Path connects with Offa’s Dyke National Trail to create an unique continuous 1030 mile path around Wales.
The 870 mile Wales Coast Path (external link) opened in May 2012. In addition to those who wish to walk along the Path, some sections of the route are ideal for:
- people with disabilities
- families with prams/buggies
- those on horse back
From time to time it is necessary to temporarily divert sections of the Wales Coast Path - mostly for reasons of public safety following severe weather, landslides or construction work.

How many people are using the path?
Around 2.89 million users were counted along the path over 11 months.
Our funding and European Union (EU) Funding successfully delivered this Programme.
In January 2013, we announced £1.15 million of continued support for 2013/14. This will ensure that the Wales Coast Path continues to be developed for the enjoyment of communities and visitors.
Natural Resources Wales has managed the programme to complete the Path. More information on the Wales Coast Path can be found on the official Wales Coastal Path website (external link).
