Whether you live in Wales or are on holiday,
the Wales Coast Path can be surprisingly accessible by public
transport. So, why not leave the parking behind and embrace the
freedom offered by our bus and train network.
Public transport opens up the Coast Path in surprising ways. Not
only is it a trouble-free way to travel to Wales if you are on your
holidays, but it is also a great way to get onto the path - and you
can leave the car at home! With 870 miles to explore, you can use
public transport to hop along the coast allowing you to just walk
favourite sections (while also giving your feet a bit of a rest).
There are even walks that are linked up with public transport so
you don’t have to walk back to your start point. (As some areas
offer limited services a day, we suggest that public transport is
used for the outward leg of your journey so that you can relax and
enjoy the journey rather than have to think about reaching your
destination by a specific time.)
Has a useful route planner service. This will take you from your
doorstop to the Path in a matter of seconds! Just say where you are
and where you want to go to and it will work out a suitable route
using public transport. It will also keep your informed about any
delays and you can print out timetables.
