Read all about it
The Coast Path is often featured in the news and in travel articles within regional, national and international media. This is not surprising when you consider that most people who visit the South West, do so to be beside the sea and increasingly this involves a walk along the Coast Path.
More people are becoming familiar with the acorn symbols on the way marked paths and take on longer sections, either using public transport in one direction to cover greater distances in one day or by stopping off at B&Bs along the way. Media coverage of these walks is essential to inform people that this is even possible.
Others are taking on the challenge to walk the entire length of the South West Coast Path, either as a personal challenge or to raise money for a good cause. Again, this is often covered in the media. Visit the Hall of Fame to find out what challenges people are attempting.
More general media coverage has highlighted this National Trail as being one of the world’s greatest walks and the UK’s favourite walk. This includes being one of ten worldwide walks to feature in a travel documentary for German state broadcaster ARTE TV entitled ‘Wanderlust- Europe’s most beautiful hiking trails’ as well as winning the Walk magazine award for Best British Walking Route for the second time in a row.
National Geographic Traveller magazine has featured the South West Coast Path, alongside The Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian, The Independent on Sunday and many other national, regional and local magazines and newspapers.

In addition, the South West Coast Path is often included in guidebooks and publications, including the Lonely Planet’s Great Adventures guide, in which it was described as described as “walking at its most diverse, most spectacular and most delicious.”
