When it comes to lush landmarks and stunning scenery, there are very few places in the UK that are as striking as the Welsh Coastline. South Wales is home to some gorgeous, untouched beaches and quaint coastal towns, making it an ideal holiday destination for nature lovers and those looking for a taste of the quiet life.
Here are the must-visit destinations you simply cannot miss out on:
Whether you want to relax on the UK’s best beach or enjoy local shops and restaurants, Rhossili Bay is the place to be. This large, sandy beach sees thousands of tourists flocking to it every year and is extremely popular with nature lovers and surfers alike. Located at the bottom of the Gower Peninsula, Rhossili Bay is a destination that is not to be missed out on.
Tenby’s small harbour is a picturesque seaside town that is renowned for its amazing selection of locally sourced food. The beach features over two miles of soft golden sand and a promenade that makes year round walks of the area very pleasant. The town’s old castle walls are still standing and much of the Victorian architecture can still be seen making this a perfect destination for history enthusiasts.
Three Cliffs Bay
Welsh Singer, Katherine Jenkins, famously said that the Gower’s Three Cliffs Bay has a view that takes her breath away every time. This award winning destination is a tribute to the untouched natural coastline that Wales is famous for. Often horses can be seen galloping along the sea front and families come to enjoy the safe, tucked-away feel of this gorgeous area offers.
This national trust listed designed landscape is one of the best places to go if you appreciate exotic plants, natural woodland, beautiful coastlines and luxurious estates. The beach is an excellent place to go to relax in the sunshine and it is well known for being the best surfing beach in Wales.
Despite Swansea being one of the biggest cities in Wales, Swansea Bay is where the majority of the tourism goes during the summer months. With the Mumbles and the Gower Peninsula just a stones through away you can enjoy all the goodness of the countryside without having to leave the convenience of city life too far behind. There are so many activities and attractions to choose from that you could spend weeks in Swansea and still not have done it all!
