The Wales Coast Path (Welsh: Llwybr Arfordir Cymru) is a long-distance footpath which follows the whole of the coastline of Wales. It opened on 5 May 2012, and offers a 870 miles (1,400 km) walking route from Chepstow, in the south, to Queensferry, in the north.

Wales is the first administration in the world to provide a dedicated footpath along its entire coastline. The Path runs through 11 National Nature Reserves and many more local Wildlife Trust and RSPB reserves.

Lonely Planet rated the coast of Wales first in its Best in Travel: top 10 regions for 2012.

The path winds through 870 miles (1,400 km) of coastal landscape - from the outskirts of Chester in the north to Chepstow in the south east. The journey takes walkers from the mouth of the River Dee, along the north Wales coast with its seaside towns, over the Menai Strait onto the Isle of Anglesey, from the Llŷn Peninsula down the sweep of Cardigan Bay, through Britain’s only coastal National Park in Pembrokeshire, along miles of sand, via Gower, along the waterfront of Cardiff Bay and Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, to the market town of Chepstow.

The whole path is accessible to walkers and, where practical, some sections are suitable for cyclists, families with pushchairs, people with restricted mobility and horse riders.
