The Best Region on Earth

Ogmore by Sea, BridgendYou might remember that last year the Lonely Planet named the Welsh coast is the "best region on Earth" to visit in 2012.  To those of us familiar with the coast it was just confirmation of something we had known all along. To others it may have come as a bit of a surprise.

Now for the doubters there's a chance to see what all the fuss was about as the brand new All Wales Coastal Path gets ready to open on 5th May.

The path will cover a distance of 1377km and takes in every inch of Wales' coast including the famous Pembrokeshire coast, the beautiful Gower peninsula and traditional seaside resorts such as Porthcawl before finishing at Chepstow on the banks of the Severn Esturary.

There was a lively debate last year when we asked suggestions for what was the best part of the Welsh coastline. Needles to say the answers were varied with lots of different suggestions.  I suppose that just goes to show the coast is indeed the "best region on Earth".

Don't forget to share the beauty of the coast with us by adding an image to our flickr group.
