It's taken millions of years at the hands of nature to form and it's now attracting millions of people to Wales. The coast is one of the country's greatest assets, and there's now an app to help people enjoy it.

The Wales Coast app is intended to give those new to walking a chance to prepare for the great outdoors, from the comfort of home. Something those used to a hike, welcome.

It's all part of a wider plan to make the path's 870 miles of welsh coast more appealing and help the country's economy benefit as much as possible from it.
