South Wales Coast and Severn Estuary Path in Wales
, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales,
The Severn Estuary and South Wales Coast Path, part of the Wales Coastal Path, offers plunging cliffs, tiny secluded coves and breathtaking views, making the path a must for walkers with a love of the countryside.

The path takes in village life, magnificent views of the Severn estuary and big city landscapes. The path travels the route of the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Coast, with small villages in a rural landscape, before reaching the traditional seaside resort of Barry and the more sophisticated Penarth.

On reaching Cardiff Bay the walk skirts the waters of the huge Cardiff Bay Barrage with the option of City culture and nightlife.

Leaving Cardiff the walk passes through the City of Newport – with the option of crossing the River Usk via the historic Transporter Bridge (a very strange object).

Alongside the Severn Estuary you can share your walk with the numerous wildfowl and waders that can be spotted along the way, particularly throughout the winter. Curlew and plover are common and, at peak times, the Severn estuary is one of only a handful of British estuaries to hold more than 100,000 wading birds. The whole of the Newport coastal area is part of the Gwent Levels, an area of reclaimed salt marsh protected by sea defences and drained by artificial ditches known locally as reens.

The Severn estuary has the second highest tidal range in the world at 49 feet and is home to the world famous Severn bore – a head of water that at certain times of the year drives huge waves – and all else before it. ....
