Wales Coast Path aims to hike up interest

Tour operators and agents are invited to stop off at the Visit Wales stand to find out about new guides and itineraries for the 870-mile Wales Coast Path.

The newly-launched guides, with over 50 itinerary options, will give operators, agents and visitors greater knowledge and options along the path, with details on accommodation, transport, what’s on offer for each walk and much more.

The three- and seven-day itinerary packages cover all seven regions of the coastal path, offering customers and businesses key information about walking some of the most diverse sections of the route.

All itineraries will be downloadable from the Wales Coast Path website and will be promoted to key promotional partners.

The new guides and itineraries follow on from the summer launch of a free augmented reality app, alongside new family-friendly walking trails, aimed at encouraging families to get out and enjoy the Wales Coast Path.

The app has been specially designed as part of a national initiative to get children more active outdoors and focuses on utilising engaging visuals, informative stories and interactive games to help bring the coast’s fascinating wildlife, scenery and history to life.

Meanwhile a new water sports centre, scheduled to open at the end of 2019, is set to put South Wales on the map as a ‘hike-to-surf’ destination.

The new £1.5m water sports centre is situated on the award-winning Blue Flag Rest Bay beach in South Wales, which is already regarded as one of Wales’ best surfing locations, and one of the closest consistent surf beaches to London.

When it opens, the centre will offer an alternative option to traditional surf hot-spots such as Devon and Cornwall.

The team behind Wales Coast Path is offering a variety of press trips in 2020. Find out more at the stand.
