With 870 miles to choose from, you may be wondering where to explore...
Our Explore by Area pages may be of help, but you may also wish to download one of our Regional Leaflets in the Resources section below. The main leaflet describes our regions and lists the many activities that can be found either on or close by the Path. The eight regional leaflets provide more localised information and recommend some great walks and highlights that can be discovered along the coastline.
The leaflets can also be found at a range of outlets throughout Wales including Tourist Information Centres, key tourism attraction and transport centres.
