Now you can take a modern-day pilgrimage through this famously green region along the country's newly created Wales Coast
Path, the world's first walking and cycling trail to continuously trace a country's shoreline.
Packing must: Bring a windbreaker to tackle the notoriously windy coast.
Know before you go: Track your trip at walescoastpath.gov.uk.
Most unusual lighthouse: Bunk at the West Usk Lighthouse, a beacon-turned-B&B outside of Newport, South Wales, and enjoy a rooftop garden and hot tub with water views.
