Short Walks on the Wales Coast Path

We created the first trail around our national coastline; however we don’t expect our visitors to walk the entire 870 miles. So even if it’s a few hours on the Wales Coast Path it’s enough to have a Wales Walking Adventure.  


South Stack, Anglesey
South Stack, Anglesey


Thousands of seabirds wheel above the cliffs at South Stack, the sea churns beneath - who'd have guessed it was only two miles from Holyhead? The RSPB Reserve on this route gets your clients close to the locals - razorbills, guillemots and perhaps a peregrine falcon - and the chance for a nice cup of tea before returning back.

Llanddwynwen Priory
Llanddwynwen Priory, Anglesey


Pilgrims came to this south-eastern corner of Anglesey to worship the holy well of St Dwynwen, the patron saint of lovers, whose 16th-century church is the ruin on the island. One of the most romantic walks and it's the views that will give you butterflies. Staying till sunset is not to be missed.

Ty Coch Inn
Ty Coch Inn, Porthdinllaen


The beach at Porthdinllaen spreads itself along a perfect cove and natural harbour. Owned by the National Trust the Llŷn Peninsula offers a lovely amble and views of the sea, mountains, wildlife beaches and rockpools. The Ty Coch Inn is a great stop on route for a drink.

Tresaith Beach
Beach at Tresaith, Ceredigion


This is a pretty clifftop walk. Cardigan Bay glitters on the side, with Snowdonia mountains rising ahead. Have a paddle along the National Trust Penbryn beach. The Cardi Bach bus runs travels back to the car parks (check the timetables).

St Davids Pembrokeshire
St Davids, Pembrokeshire


This walk is a popular one and if you can only do one walk in Pembrokeshire make it St Davids Head. The circuit feels as wild as anywhere in Wales, with wildlife a plenty.

Martin's Haven, Pembrokeshire


Dramatic coastal scenery and plenty of chances to spot some wildlife. Seascapes spread almost 360 degrees and seabirds soar off the nature islands of Skomer. If you have time take an extra half mile to Marloes Sands and stay till dusk for some superb sunsets.

Llansteffan, Carmarthenshire
Llansteffan, Carmarthenshire


This is a seaside walk with its own poetry as the ruins of Llansteffan castle appear. Beyond it at Wharley Point is a seascape to Devon plus St Anthony's Well. It heals lovesickness, apparently.

Three Cliffs Bay
Three Cliffs Bay, Gower


This is an easy walk offering one of the best views in Britain. There are sand dunes at Penmaen and a castle ruined by fairies (according to the legennd), walk across the fabulous beach towards a rock spur like a dragon's back. Magical.

Cardiff Bay
Cardiff Bay


The coastal path celebrates cities too. This circuit around Cardiff Bay has history, nature and action. Art in the Norwegian Church, architecture in the striking Y Senedd (Welsh Parliament buidling) and waterbirds in a reserve.

Great Orme
Great Orme, Llandudno


The coastal path combines towns with wild coasts and this walk loops around the 200m Great Orme of Llandudno, starting from Llandudno's Victorian Pier. The views on this walk are spectacular. Spot rare silver-studded blue butterflies and Kashmir goats that have descended from the herd given to George IV.
