Visit Wales and walk around Anglesey.

It's official Wales is one of the top 10 regions to visit in 2012. This week the world's first coastal path to cover an entire country has been officially opened in Wales.

Stretching from the mouth of the River Dee in Flintshire in the north to Chepstow in south, the Wales Coast Path covers 870 miles (1,400km). The network also links into the Offa's Dyke Path - creating a 1,030 mile (1660km) route around the whole of Wales.

Lonely Planet's Best in Travel: top 10 regions for 2012 has Coastal Wales as their number one region to visit.

And this is what they had to say about Coastal Wales:

"What a wonderful thing: to walk the entire length of a country’s coastline, to trace its every nook, cranny, cliff-face, indent and estuary. How better to truly appreciate the shape – and soul – of a nation?" Read more...

So if you do fancy a break from the hectic 24/7 modern world, to relax and enjoy the idyllic welsh coastline in relative peace why not visit Anglesey.

To find out more about the coastal path around Ynys Môn - Anglesey please visit the following websites:

One of the highlights amongst many on the Coastal Path is the RSPB Nature Reserve at South Stack.

The coastal path also caters for sport enthusiasts i.e it forms part of a series of coastal marathons see  endurancelife - Coastal series Anglesey.

I'm still getting my pedantic head around how the Offa's Dyke path is part of the 'coastal' walk around a whole country. ;)

On t'other hand: well done to those responsible for giving Welsh tourism a huge boost.

Maybe we go for a complimentary 'stable's and inn's' bridal path trekking holiday round the island, for horses and riders?
