Summer’s here, and the new edition of walk magazine is brimming with seaside strolls and clifftop climbs to help you make the most of the coast in the (hopefully!) warmer weather. Choose from ten shoreline rambles with spectacular views or take a trip to Malta for a magical walking holiday in the Mediterranean. Or why not try one of our new Ramblers Routes ­– eight waterfront walks, each with a tempting watering hole along the way?
