The Pembrokeshire Coast Path has won an award as the best route of its kind in Britain.
A poll of Coast magazine readers voted the 186-mile route their favourite seaside path, a recognition that has been welcomed by officials at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
Most of the trail lies inside the park and head of recreation and tourism for the authority Charles Mathieson welcomed the news.
He said: "This year also marks the 40th anniversary of the path and it's wonderful to have national recognition for this fabulous resource and to know that it is still valued 40 years on."
Mr Mathieson noted that those carrying a trekking pole
with them will not have to negotiate as many stiles as before, with the authority having removed over 400 of them over the past decade.
Those keen to go walking
on a coastal path in Wales can also enjoy the 125-mile long Anglesey Coastal Path, which takes in most of the coast of the island and the adjacent Holy Island.
