PEMBROKESHIRE COAST PATH, WALES, UK
Wander the rolling hills of England’s only coastal national park as you traverse the serene Pembrokeshire Coast Path in Wales. This 186 mile-long footpath begins in St. Dogmaels and passes through a diverse array of maritime scenery, including more than seventy remote (ahem.. private) beaches. That’s not to mention the mountainous cliff views, coves, estuaries, and grasslands. While the route typically takes 10-15 days to complete, it’s easy to take rest days at any number of charming fishing villages along the way.
BONDI TO COOGEE WALK, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
This route is super quick (only four miles one way), but it’s an unmissable coastal walk near metropolitan Sydney. By taking the Bondi to Coogee Walk, it’s possible to see not only the famous sandy shores of Bondi Beach, but Sydney’s second-favorite beach as well. While the pathway is short, the climbs are moderately tough traversing over mountainous coastal cliffs. The best part? Walk directly into the ocean once you’ve finished!
