North Wales Coast

The North Wales coast is a mixture of wonderful sandy beaches and family friendly towns and villages

There’s some 60 miles of sea views from the North Wales path starting from Chester and, at Prestatyn, the Wales Coast Path joins Offa’s Dyke Path, Britain’s longest ancient monument and a National Trail, before continuing through to Bangor.

With traditional seaside towns, the rich wildlife within the Dee Estuary and adrenalin-fuled activities including BMX and kite surfing, the North Wales Coast offers something for everyone. 


Gruff Owen describes how Wales’ rich industrial past interacts with the diverse nature along this section of the Welsh coastline.

It’s not all walking. In addition to the wide range of walking opportunities available, there are so many other things to see and do along the Coast Path.

Walking is one of the best ways to experience the Welsh coastline with over 800 miles of path to explore, taking you over impressive cliff-tops and across beautiful beaches. Here are a few of our favourites and recommendations to show you the best of the coastline.

Keep up to date with the latest news and information from the Wales Coast Path Officer and our team on the ground.

The Wales Coast Path is easily accessible by public transport and many locations are also accessibly by the National Cycle Network.
