Environment Minister, Jane Davidson opened another section of the coastal footpath recently, linking Pendine with the Pembrokeshire border.

The extra four and a half miles of path means it's now possible to walk from Pendine in Carmarthenshire to Borth in Ceredigion.

Last month the minister opened a new boardwalk for walkers, wheel chair users and pushchair enthusiasts (myself included) in Porthcawl which runs between Rest Bay and Pink Bay.

A new 27 mile section of path was also opened earlier in July between Prestatyn and Llandudno.

This all part of the Welsh Assembly Government's commitment to creating a footpath right around the coastline of Wales by 2012.

Once complete, the Wales Coast Path will stretch around 850 miles of coastline - from Flintshire in North East Wales to Monmouthshire in the South East.

As well as improving sections of existing coastal path, work is also being done to develop new sections and promote places of interest along the way.
