Let’s make the most of a long weekend and walk a section of The Wales Coastal Path.

The walk is 24 miles in total and so we’ll need to average about 8 miles a day for the duration from Llanmadoc to Oxwich. At the start of the walk we’ll arrange to leave a car or two at Oxwich so we have a shuttle sorted for the end of the walk on Sunday. We'll meet at The King Arthur Hotel in Reynoldston.

On the way you will pass castles, some of the best beaches in Britain, dramatic cliffs, old parish churches, famous caves with prehistoric links and wildlife in abundance.

The cost includes guiding, all safety kit, map reading and navigation training if wanted. Car sharing will be encouraged and Andy might be able to offer a lift from Cardiff. The cost does not include food or camping kit but Andy will advise on this.

Go dip your toe not only into the ocean but also into backpacking and wild camping and nights under the stars.

Do search the programme for other great events!


Day 1

Llanmadoc to Langennith

A fine start to the trip with a walk out to Whitford Lighthouse and a wild camp in the sand dunes near Bury Holm

Day 2

Llangennith to Overton

It's a day of two halves - walking along the beach to Rhossili then the cliff top path to Overton

Day 3

Overton to Oxwich

It's the last day but it still pleases. Fine beside the sea walking with a lovely forest to finish the walk with, emerging at the pub and a well earned drink before we head home :)
