The Wales Coast Path, at 870 miles is the longest trail in Britain, tracing the coastline from Chester to Chepstow. This guidebook divides the entire Welsh coastal path into 9 geographical areas and 57 stages, ranging between 10 to 20 miles in length. However there is no need to stick rigidly to this schedule, as there are usually places where each stage can be broken early, or extended further. Alongside detailed route descriptions and maps for each stage, the guidebook provides a range of practical information, whether you plan to walk the Wales Coast Path in full, in shorter sections, or as a series day-walks. Travel information, advice on accommodation and planning, as well as details on the history, wildlife and geology of the coast ensure that this is an ideal companion to uncovering the Welsh coast on foot.
