Europe’s best coastal walks

Coastal walks can be both relaxing and exhilarating. As well as the abundance of fresh fish and seafood on restaurant menus, the big attraction of a coastal walk is the chance to kick off your boots and feel the sand between your toes, and of course cool off with a refreshing dip after an exhausting day of walking.

From the wild and rugged Atlantic coastlines of Ireland and Portugal to the colourful clifftop villages of Italy’s Mediterranean coast, the tours listed below include some of the very finest coastal trails that Europe has to offer.
