Wales Beaches & Coast

Wales although surrounded by sea on three sides is generally recognised by Snowdonia mountains and industrial past. The Wales coast path has some 1,400km (870 miles) of coastline to explore with lots to do and see along the way. In fact Wales is the only country in the World to have a continuous coastal path stretching its entire length.

Wales currently has 44 Blue Flag beaches.

Along the coast you have a great mix of large character towns, small fishing villages and remote bays only reached on foot.

Llandudno in the North is between a pair of limestone headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme. Yoi have a choice of two beaches and the traditional Victorian seafront.

Tenby is one of Wales most popular seaside resorts and has a three mile stretch of beach front.

The Gower Peninsula is the place for stunning beaches, with Rhossili Bay being the most famous of them.

If you want surfing then the southern Porthcawl beach is a place to visit equalling any of the more famous Cornwall beaches.
