Public access is set to be improved at some of Wales' beauty spots.

The national park authorities of Pembrokeshire, Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons have each received a share of £600,000 Welsh Government funding for a variety of projects.

They include improving accessibility to Cadair Idris, Snowdon's Miners Track and in the east Beacons.

Wheelchair access will also be installed at Freshwater East, Abereiddy and St Davids in Pembrokeshire.


The remainder of the funding will be spent on improvements to the 870 mile Wales Coast Path.

Work will be carried out at:

  • Wisemans Bridge, Pembrokeshire
  • Broad Haven to Little Haven, Pembrokeshire
  • Benllech, Anglesey
  • Moelfre, Anglesey
  • Borth y Gest, Gwynedd
  • Penllech, Gwynedd
  • Morfa Bychan, Gwynedd
  • Nefyn, Gwynedd

There is also an allocation to Natural Resources Wales to help it repair winter storm damage on the coast path, preserving it for years to come.
