Walk the Wales Coast Path
Did you know that we own and care for more than one-fifth of the Welsh coastline? Think of a great Welsh coastal walk - on Gower, Stackpole, St David's Head or Llyn - and the chances are we look after it.
We've put together a selection of walks that take in the rugged cliffs and long, sandy beaches of the Wales Coast Path. Ranging from two to six miles, each walk comes with a downloadable map and plenty of sights to look out for along the way.
Explore this gem of a walk on the Llyn Peninsula. It will reward you with stunning views in all directions as you follow it along a splinter of land that's an outstanding wildlife haven.
On this two-mile (3.2km) walk you step out of the car park onto a fantastic shingle ridge. Watch a host of water birds on the lagoon and walk back along the lane. You'll also pass the home of the first person to fly from Wales to Ireland, Captain Vivian Hewitt, who also created the lagoon.
A truly atmospheric three-mile (4.8km) walk. If you time it right you'll see the sun setting into the Irish Sea. There's ancient pre-history here plus memories of more recent human achievement and memorials of loss.
You'll need your head for heights on this spectacular walk, as the sea cliffs drop away to Cardigan Bay hundreds of feet below. On a clear day you can see all the way to Snowdonia and Llyn.
Enjoy some of Pembrokeshire’s finest coastal scenery while exploring its industrial past.
This four-mile (6.4km) walk takes you to the tiny fishing port of Porthgain, which used to export road stone all over the UK. It also takes in Abereiddi’s famous Blue Lagoon, which was once an old slate quarry.
Starting at Whitesands Beach, this four-mile (6km) walk takes in abundant signs of early man as well as glorious heathland. Enjoy views of Ramsey Island. On a clear day you can see Snowdonia from the top of Carn Llidi. Visit Coetan Arthur, the Stone Age chambered grave.
This six-mile (9km) walk takes you over Wales’ oldest rocks, of the Pre-Cambrian era, which dominate the peninsula. They're volcanic in origin, covered in places by layers of younger, sedimentary Cambrian rocks. Watch for porpoises in Ramsey Sound.
A five-mile (8km) circular walk around the Marloes Peninsula, with its sandstone rocks on the south side and volcanic rocks on the north side. It offers great views of Pembrokeshire’s islands and a sea teeming with wildlife.
This six-mile (9km) walk on the former Cawdor Estate takes in some of the finest wildlife habitats in Pembrokeshire: limestone cliffs with breeding seabirds, beaches, dunes and freshwater lakes.
This four-mile (6.4km) walk along the South Gower coast lets you discover limestone-loving plants and visit the cliff known as Graves End that holds a gruesome tale of shipwrecks.
A walk that over its 2.5-mile (4km) length goes through woodland, sand dunes, limestone grassland, saltmarsh and freshwater marsh. It also includes ancient landscape features such as the medieval sea wall. It even passes a pub - what more could you ask for?
Many of Wales's finest coastal walks are on land we own and care for. These range from walks by the Cemlyn Lagoon on Anglesey to walks on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. In between are walks on the Lleyn Peninsula and around Pembrokeshire's coastal headlands.
