Celebrate the Wales Coast Path

2019 marks seven years since the launch of the Wales Coast Path and Ramblers Cymru will be celebrating with a seven day walking festival, 4 - 19 May 2019, from north to south Wales, including hidden parts of the Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire coast.

There will be a programme of walks in the following locations during May:

  • 4 May at the Great Orme
  • 5, 7, and 10 May at Ynys Mon
  • 6 May at Porthmadog
  • 11 May at Cwm Tydu
  • 12 May at Saundersfoot
  • 18 May at Burry Port
  • 19 May at Llantwit Major

2019 is the Visit Wales ‘Year of Discovery’ and Ramblers groups across Wales, along with Keep Wales Tidy and other walking organisations, will bring the coast path to life and surprise you with some very unique discoveries. 

Learn about the birds on our shores, adventures of pirates, industries that made Wales famous across the world and find some hidden gems from shipwrecks and rock-pools to fossils, lighthouses and lime-kilns. All walks and activities will be led by experienced walk leaders and the programme will include short, accessible walks, family friendly walks and longer challenges to suit everyone!

Most walks will be free (apart from an additional charge for linear walks where transport is required) but you will need to register.
