Walking – Wales Coast Path
The Wales Coast Path was launched on 5 May 2012, and was heralded as the world’s first coastal path to cover an entire country. It follows the entire Welsh coastline from Chepstow in the south east to near Queensferry in the north. In 2011 it was voted by National Geographic magazine as the second-best coastal destination in the world.
The path travels through 870 miles (1,400 km) of coastal landscape with the Ceredigion section approximately 72 miles (116 km) in length. It offers excellent walking opportunities and affords magnificent views across Cardigan Bay with the chance to see dolphin, seals and numerous sea birds during your ramble. The path links many coastal villages along Cardigan Bay and from Llangrannog you can walk north towards New Quay or south towards Tresaith or Mwnt with spectacular coastal views in all directions.
