The E9 European long distance path, E9 path or European Coastal Path (French: Sentier Européen du Littoral) is one of the European long-distance paths, running for 5,000 kilometres (3,100 mi) from Cabo de São Vicente in Portugal to Narva-Jõesuu in Estonia.

The path follows the western coasts of Portugal, Spain and France as far as Roscoff. From Roscoff the path splits to offer two alternative routes:

The path then follows the coast of Belgium and the Netherlands. Here it follows the Dutch North Sea Trail,[1] which includes 5 successive trails:

The path then continues into Germany. It crosses the base of the Jutland peninsula, before following the coast of the Baltic Sea through Poland, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, continuing in Russia towards Saint Petersburg.

The path is still under development[when?], and not all sections are yet available.[2]
