The Best Region on Earth

Rest BayWell, after much build up and anticipation, Wales last week became the first country in the world to have a walking route going right around the coast.

The path runs for 870 from the outskirts of Chester in the North, through the Snowdonia National Park, down the West coast, around the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and through South Wales taking in the cities of Swansea and Cardiff before finally ending in the border town of Chepstow.

Well I say ending, but if you haven't had enough you can take the Offa's Dyke Trail North from here along the Wales/England border for another 160 miles back to your starting point.

There's been lots of coverage of the path in the press with the Guardian saying "Wales has surely set a standard in coastal path designation" and Lonely Planet said that Coastal Wales was the best place in the world to visit in 2012.

Leave a comment to tell us what you think of the path and which section is your favourite and don't forget to share the beauty of the coast with us by adding an image to our flickr group.
