Funding of £855,000 has been announced today to help make sure Wales is prepared for the tourist season, following the winter storms.
The Wales Coast Path, which welcomes nearly three million visitors every year, will receive £545,000, so that areas of the path that were damaged during the bad weather in December and January can be repaired in time for summer.
This funding will be available to the 17 local authorities that were the worst hit.
Aberystwyth, one of the areas hardest hit by the January storms, will also benefit from a £310,000 allocation to restore the promenade and get the area back to business.
The funding will be used to replace damaged lighting, railings and street furniture like benches, bins and flag poles.
The promenade sea wall will also be repaired and repointed.
Today's announcement takes the total funding to over £10 million to help coastal areas which suffered from the wettest winter on record.
They call it the Walk on Wales - a trek by soldiers, families and friends - hundreds of miles around our coastline. The final destination is back in Cardiff with - they hope - a million pounds raised for forces' charities.
Today they set off from Chester on the North Wales leg of the tour - a platoon of walkers with t-shirts and sponsorship forms.
Ministers have welcomed news that the Wales Coast Path scooped the top prize at a recent ceremony in London.
The 870-mile path won the Silver Jubilee Cup and the Exemplary Rural Planning category at the Royal Town Planning Institute awards on Wednesday evening.
Culture Minister John Griffiths said the accolade was 'thoroughly deserved', while Economy Minister Edwina Hart called the Welsh coast 'one of our most important tourism assets'.
The Wales Coast Path has already provided a £16m boost to the Welsh economy and has been voted by the Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2012 as the greatest region on earth to visit in 2012. This latest award is excellent news for the the Wales Coast path and for Wales.
