In their words...
why we love Wales

Wales is home to a remarkable coastline that encompasses a vast number of internationally recognised beaches. The 870-mile Wales Coast Path is the only continuous coast path in the world to stretch an entire country. It’s a national asset and runs through two of the three national parks (Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire Coast) and three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Anglesey, Llŷn and Gower).

On an anticlockwise tour around the coast you’ll be confronted by the delights of the Gower; a westward facing hub for surfers, Carmarthen Bay’s Special Area of Conservation, Pembrokeshire’s steep limestone cliffs, Llŷn’s perfect combination of sandy stretches and offshore stacks, and Wales’s largest island; Anglesey. It would be considered unlucky to not spot a porpoise, dolphin or seal on your way through mid Wales’s Cardigan Bay.

Despite 44 of Wales’s beaches receiving blue flag status in 2016, marine litter is inevitably still an issue that needs tackling hands on. Thanks to the People’s Postcode Lottery, our Welsh volunteers have blossomed to keep Wales’s beaches clean and spread the SAS message from Rhosneigr right down to Porthcawl. A Beach Clean Box is never too far away!
