Welsh coast 'best place to walk in the world'
Bookmark and Share
The coast of Wales has been hailed as the best region in the world to visit by traveller's Bible Lonely Planet.

Its list of the finest regions to see was topped by the Welsh shoreline partly due to the fact that from next year it will be possible to walk the whole of it on the Welsh Coastal Path.

The guide stated that this means people can enjoy 1,377 km of "dramatic serrations, sandy bays and domineering castles" as they make their way from the Severn to Dee estuaries and all points in between.

Wales beat off the likes of northern Kenya, Croatia's Hvar Island and Queenstown and the southern lakes of New Zealand.

Those heading with their walking boots to the coast may particularly enjoy the Pembrokeshire Coast, the only UK national park focused on its seaside scenery.

It has 418 km of coastline, more than all the other UK national parks put together, while Snowdonia features 60 km, the second highest amount.
