The Wales Coast Path officially opens this weekend and for the first time provides an unbroken 870-mile route along the magnificent Welsh coast – so why not book one of our caravan park short breaks to Wales and start exploring.

This amazing path will hug the coast as closely as possible and lead through nature reserves, national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty – an incredible route for wildlife enthusiasts, naturalists, cyclists, walkers and lovers of stunning views.


The achievement has helped Wales claim the accolades of “best region on Earth” by Lonely Planet and the second finest “world destination for a spring break” by National Geographic.
