World’s first ‘Total’ Coastal Path in Wales

Watch the video of this incredible trail about this country’s stunning coastline

Wales appears to be making quite a mark on the World tourism stage. In 2010 the Ryder Cup graced its green and pleasant land, then last year Pembrokeshire was voted the second best coastal destination in the world – now in May this year, the first ever ‘total’ coastal path will be completed, and Wales will, as a result, become the first country in the world to offer tourists a formal trail right around its coast.

Developments are currently being made to the biggest single section, the 40 mile (64km) Gower Coast Path, giving the public easy access to Wales’ best kept countryside secrets. But whilst we wait for the final finishing touches, watch our video for a sneak preview of this incredible trail before it opens to the public. The video also showcases an initiative being supported by Ordnance Survey named the ‘GeoVation Challenge’ which this year, is asking us all how we can connect communities and visitors along the Wales Coast Path through the application of geographic data, skills and expertise.

The challenge, “How Can We Connect Communities and Visitors Along The Wales Coast Path” is calling all innovative thinkers, developers and entrepreneurs everywhere to submit their venture plans and pitch online for the chance to win a share of up to £125,000 funding to implement their idea.

The 870 mile (1,400km) all-Wales coast path stretches from the Dee estuary in north east Wales, west to Anglesey and Gwynedd, and down the west and south west Wales coast going east to Cardiff and Newport with views over the Bristol Channel.
