As the days lengthen and the temperatures rise, our thoughts often turn to walking by the sea. This might be a walk on the pier, across the sands, along the cliffs, or in pretty unspoiled bays. 

Waves crashing against the rocks and swooping seabirds with bracing sea breezes are exhilarating but we also dream of the sun’s warmth on our backs, the sun sparkling off the sea, and the golden sand between our toes of our childhood summers.    

Walks along the coast are special in so many ways – we are highlighting a selection of Walkers are Welcome towns that offer so many different ways to enjoy the summer months ahead. You may even discover smugglers, ancient battles, shipwrecks, local foods, sandcastles, boats, storms, nature, and wildlife on your seaside adventure or a delightful walk inland.

When completed the England Coastal Path  will be nearly 3,000 miles with the Wales Coastal Path  already celebrating its 10th anniversary.
