Wales 2018 - Year of the Sea

March 19, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

In 2018 Wales is celebrating it's outstanding coastline. This is the Year of the Sea. The 870-mile Wales Coast Path runs the whole length of the coastline: the first continuous coastal path of any country in the world. It passes through seascapes of breath-taking variety, from flat wetlands to towering cliffs, featuring hundreds of harbours, coves, inlets and islands – and around 230 beaches.

It’s stunningly beautiful, of course. Pembrokeshire has Britain’s only coastal National Park, while the Gower Peninsula was Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – an award that’s since been given to other coastal gems on Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula.

Where else can you see such stunning sunsets than like this that I was privileged to witness at Mwnt, Ceredigion, one of the best locations on the Wales coast for such views.

Having had the pleasure of walking and photographing most of the Wales coast I can honestly say that everyone should take the opportunity to join in with these celebrations at sometime during this year.

If you need anymore convincing just take a look in my Wales Landscapes galleries for many other locations that you could visit.
