Beaches In Wales

Whether it’s North, South or somewhere in-between, Wales’ beaches are amongst the best in the UK and even the world. Across over 1,500 miles of stunning coastline, you’ll find more than 40 blue flag beaches with truly picturesque surroundings. From serene cove beaches to long stretches of sand, they provide the perfect setting for surfing, swimming, or just relaxing in the sun.

Anglesey and Colwyn Bay in the North. Pembrokeshire and Gower in the South. Not to mention the awe-inspiring Ceredigion coast to the West. Wherever you choose, you’ll get an abundance of golden sand, crystal waters and – if you’re lucky – clear blue skies.

That’s all complemented by amazing sights and activities just a stone’s throw away. Wales’ compact size makes it perfect for days out that would normally be a world away from the best beaches. Explore the vast expanses of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons. Get your adrenaline fix on the world’s fastest zip line. Or simply wander round quaint countryside markets and historic castles.
