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.
