Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path: South Wales Coast

Circular walks along the Wales Coast Path

by Dennis Kelsall

This handy little guide book gives you the ten very best short circular walks along the South Wales Coast section of the Wales Coast Path.

The coast is one of extreme contrasts, ranging from great dune systems through sheer cliffs to miles of coastal salt marsh. Nowhere is far from a delightful stretch overlooking the sea, with fine views, nature and heritage all around.

Far reaching views, a stunning diversity of landscape, and the richness of the area’s ancient and industrial heritage are all explored in these ten short, circular walks.
