About the app

It is a map-based app for use on smart devices like your phone or tablet and shows your location on the path and help you to plan your route and follow the path. The app will enhance your path experience with the following two special functions:

  • Track your progress – you can record and save your walks and track how much of the path you’ve completed,
  • A unique digital experience that can only be experienced on the path itself.

Track your progress

Whether you walk one mile or the entire 870 miles, our app will show you where you are on the path. 

The tracking function is great for:

  • Keeping you on track – it will show you where you are on the path & the path route
  • Recording and saving your journeys in the app
  • Tracking your progress per section and overall, on the path.
  • Suggesting nearby walks – if you want to explore further.
  • Finding points of interest on the map to make the most of your time on the path.

A unique digital experience

The app has lots of fun and interesting facts, features about the path and surrounding areas. These are linked to local Welsh folklore and history and the unique coastal wildlife - everything you’ll come across when you visit the path.

We’ve created 7 Family Walks with a Difference. These are designed to encourage families to visit the path using our app for a unique digital experience at the following locations:

1. The Great Orme near the Rest and be Thankful café in Conwy County,
2. Menai Bridge town on the Belgian Promenade on Anglesey,
3. Borth y Gest, near the car park in the village on the Llyn Peninsula,
4. New Quay town on the green near the official halfway sculpture in Ceredigion,
5. Saundersfoot beach in Pembrokeshire,
6. Pendine Sands near the beach car park in Carmarthenshire,
7. Cardiff barrage near Roald Dahl’s famous crocodile bench in Cardiff Bay.

Once the app is downloaded and open on your device, simply point it at the information board to unlock the special features in the app.

This activates a game, an augmented reality feature or a 3D video telling you a story about that section of the path in a fun and different way.
