    All Wales Coastal Path

    by grayfo Written Jan 16, 2012

    The All Wales Coastal Path is set to open in May 2012 and will provide a walking route along the whole of the country's jagged sea border, 850 miles in length it will be the first complete coastal path around any country.

    The All Wales Coast Path will ensure improved access to the coast line and encourage people to live more healthy and active lifestyles. The path is also expected to boost tourism and economic activity within coastal locations around Wales.

    Torrent Walk

    This walk was walking distance from where I was staying at the Dolgamedd Camping And Caravan Park.

    The walk itself starts from a lay-by near the village of Brithdir. The path sometimes steep at times follows the coarse of the river Clwedog as it flows through the gorge and eventually into the river Wnion.

    Severn Bridge
    4 more images

    When we drove from England to Wales, we had to cross the Severn Bridge.

    The toll at the time we were there was 4.60pounds (only paid on entering Wales).

    It is a spectacular looking suspension bridge, which crosses the Severn Estuary, and was opened by the Queen in 1966.

    A second bridge has been built since, to cope with increased traffic flow.

    I have a bit of a secret passion for suspension bridges, so was very excited to cross it!!

    Port Meirion

    Port Meirion is on the coast at the mouth of the Avon Dwyryd.

    The tide goes out a long way to reveal extensive sand flats. These were also the star of the TV series "The Prisoner" as many escape attempts were made across here, only to be thwarted by ominous large white balloons that would chase and smother him (It was a weird TV series!)

    Port Meirion is also close to the Blanaue Ffestiniog railway at nearby Porthmadog which is a steam railway that runs up into Snowdonia.

    SW Coast of Wales is Beautiful

    by no1birdlady Written Aug 19, 2005
    SW Coast of Wales from ferry.

    On our tour, we rode the large ferry back from Ireland. We came into the SW coast of Wales which was just beautiful. There are islands with lighthouses and headlands sparkling in the sun. Some of the sea birds such as Fulmars and Gannets that I had seen out in the Irish Sea were still with us and seemed to fly right along with the ferry and gave great views of them. As we came into the Cleddau River mouth we passed an old fort out on a rocky island. Then we came into commercial docks where large oil tankers were docked. Then we passed Pembroke Dock Village sitting on a large cove. It was so beautiful.

    Another empty beach

    This is just one of many beaches we visited whilst on holiday in Pembrokeshire, even though in was the height of summer the beaches were empty. This happened time and time again, not that I was complaining it was fabulous.

    Pembrokeshire coastal path

    by lnalba Written Aug 16, 2003

    Coast path outside St Davids.

    The coastal path is entirely within the Pembrokeshire National Park. It runs from St Dogmaels (just outside Cardigan) in the north, to Amroth in the south. You can do the whole thing if you want, or you can take short walks here and there. There are plenty of comfort stops, campsites, towns and villages nearby, so it can be quite a pleasant way to spend a holiday.

    However, it is a coastal path, and that does mean cliffs, so be careful and wear good walking clothes.
