Coastal Wales has been named the greatest region on earth to visit this year by Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2012 publication. And the opening of the Wales Coast Path in May will mean that Wales will be one of the only countries in the world where visitors can walk the entire coastline along waymarked trails - that's 870 miles (1,400km) to explore.
It incorporates 1 Geopark, 1 Marine Nature Reserve, 2 National Parks - Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia, 3 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 14 heritage coasts, 11 nature reserves and 24 castles, 4 of which are World Heritage Sites.
