A stretch of the stunning Glamorgan Heritage Coast has been formally recognised as a public footpath in time for walkers to make the most of the spring daylight.

The 7.5km route from Ogmore to Traeth Mawr will form part of the Wales Coast Path and has become a new public footpath after previously having only informal access. This will provide locals and those on a UK family holiday alike with the chance to explore the beautiful coastline.

An agreement between the Vale of Glamorgan Council, the Dunraven Estates Company and the Trustees of Dunraven Estate has ensured public access along the dramatic coastline ahead of the official opening of the Wales Coast Path on May 5th.

The creation of the Wales Coast Path is a key Welsh Government initiative and will run for 870 miles (1400km) from the Welsh border, near Chester in the North, to Chepstow in the South. Why not find a stretch near where you are staying as part of your UK family holiday.

The formalisation of the path has also allowed major works to be undertaken and significant improvements have taken place through the valley at Cwm Mawr. Gates and signage have also been upgraded along the route.

A new path at St Mary’s Well Bay has also been announced, which will overcome a final missing link near Lavernock.
