Head to the Welsh coastline this summer
Date Posted: 22/05/12
Travellers looking for a great staycation this summer should consider short breaks to the Welsh coastline.
Now is as good a time as any to visit the beaches of Wales, as the country has just opened a continuous 870 mile Wales Coast Path that encompasses the entire shoreline.
Beginning at the mouth of the River Dee in Flintshire in the north of the nation, it heads all the way south to Chepstow.
It is the first country ever to have a continuous path running along its coastline, and its opening has led the Lonely Planet to name Wales as the number one region in the world to visit this year.
Wales' shores are also ideal for families heading away in a caravan.
"[The country] has a diverse range of small, family-run touring caravan sites and high-quality, fully-accredited holiday parks within easy access to the path," said a spokesperson for the Welsh government.
"[These] provide an ideal base to explore the stunning scenery and seascapes."
