Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is celebrating the second birthday of the Wales Coast Path by asking people to send in ‘selfies’ showing them walking their favourite Pembrokeshire part of the path.
Walkers will be out and about to celebrate the official anniversary of the Wales Coast Path as part of the Welsh Government’s month-long Love the Welsh Coast campaign.
One of the most breathtaking sections is the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, which is managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
The Authority is encouraging people to take a walk in the Park and post a ‘selfie’ to its Facebook page or Twitter feed to celebrate the Wales Coast Path anniversary.
Marie Edwards, National Park communications and marketing manager, said: “We have 186 miles of celebrated Welsh coastline here in the National Park and we’re really keen to see which bits of it people love the most.
“There is such a feel-good factor about a walk by the sea and this spectacular Pembrokeshire section of the Wales Coast Path has gems around every corner.
“So if you’ve not been out on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for a while – or if you’ve never set foot on it – now’s your chance to do so and to share what you see online.”
Post Pembrokeshire Coast Path selfies to Pembrokeshire Coast on Facebook or @PembsCoast on Twitter and use the hashtag #LovetheWelshCoast.
Opened in 2013, the Wales Coast Path was the first managed walking route in the world to trace the entire coastline of a nation. It is 870 miles long and was developed by the Welsh Government in partnership with Natural Resources Wales, 16 Local Authorities and two National Park Authorities.
