Penarth Pier, South Wales Coast and Severn Estuary

In May 2012, the Path was completed and the nation celebrated. But, it was not just Wales that embraced the Path - the story has also captured imaginations around the world.

This landmark project saw Wales take centre stage when, upon completion, the Wales Coast Path became the longest continuous path along a nation’s coastline. Its creation, however, was not about breaking records; it was about creating long lasting recreational, tourism and economic opportunities. The Wales Coast Path is one of the most important coastal developments in recent years and its story is only just beginning.
