Wales Coast Path Shares Star Billing with Celebs



Location! Location! Location!



New York, NY – May 6, 2013 - When they walk along the Wales Coast Path, visitors do sometimes walk in the footsteps of the stars, from Halle Berry to Russell Crowe and Harry Potter to James Bond. Officially opened one year ago, on May 5, 2012, the Wales Coast Path - has captured the imagination of the world.  The only footpath of its kind on the planet, the Wales Coast Path encircles all three sides of the Welsh Peninsula, along the entire 870 miles of its pristine coastline, encouraging visitors and residents alike to ‘discover the shape of the nation.’


And The Wales Coast Path offers a movie tour with a difference …

Some scenes used Newborough Woods, Traeth Penrhos and Llanddwyn Island on Anglesey (currently home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge).

Half Light (2006) Starring Demi Moore
