First Minister of Wales Celebrates 10 Years of Coast Path

The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Wales Coast Path with a visit to meet volunteers and walkers in Monmouthshire today.

Since its opening in 2012, the Wales Coast Path has established itself as a huge attraction to Welsh tourists.

The 870 mile path guides walkers along the welsh coastline, past a hundred beaches and sixteen castles.

A year long programme of events and activities celebrating the Wales Coast Path will take place throughout 2022, including walking festivals, virtual challenges and art installations.

The Welsh Government have pulled together a small group drawn from academia and the public and private sectors to review how to capitalise further on the success of the path.

Their report has been published on the Welsh Government website today (11 May).
