This guidebook explores the Welsh Coast Path which, at 1408km, is the longest trail in Britain, as it traces the coastline from Chester to Chepstow. This guide divides the Path into 9 geographical areas and 57 stages, ranging between 15 to 32km in length. The names of Anglesey, the Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, Pembrokeshire, and the Gower conjour ideas of spectacular scenery, world-famous geology, seabirds and wildlife, all of which can be explored with this guide.
Opened in 2012, the entire coast is now accessible and waymarked; a true adventure along some of the best coastline in the British Isles. Full of variety; from cities and castles to sandy beaches, tiny harbours to the crash of waves against rugged cliffs, the Path offers new sights at every point. Never straying far from the sea, or climbing higher than 300m, the Path can nevertheless offer strenuous walking as well as gentle rambles.
Alongside detailed route descriptions and maps for each stage, the guidebook provides a range of practical information, whether you plan to walk the Path in full, or as a series of day-walks. Travel information, advice on accommodation and planning, as well as details on the history, wildlife and geology of the coast ensure that this is an ideal companion to uncovering the Welsh coast on foot.
Stage 22 - the long-delayed construction of Pont Briwet - a bridge between Penrhyndeudraeth and Llandecwyn - was finally completed on July 13th 2015. The stage described in the book can now be shortened by 16km (10 miles), simply by avoiding the lengthy detour inland to Maentwrog. As a result, this is now a very short stage, so it is best to continue walking beyond Harlech, with a view to shortening the distance covered the following day to Barmouth.
