barafundle-bay

One of Wales best kept secrets

Barafundle Bay – Wales – Wow is probably the best way to describe this beach. A small bay backed by dunes and pine trees, accessible only by a half mile walk from the nearest car park. Swathes of golden sand and crystal clear waters, Barafundle has been voted many, many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world; it’s often likened to a Caribbean beach! This pristine beach is isolated which means no facilities; so everything you take has to come back up over the cliffs.Parking: Half mile walk over cliffs from Stackpole Quay car park. 2013 and Green Coast Award 2013.

Whites Sands Beach in St Davids – Time for a surf ?

Whitesands Bay – Wales – Overlooked by the imposing craggy hill of Carn Llidi, this wide expanse of fine white sand curves north towards the remote rocky headland of St Davids Head. This is one of the best surfing beaches in the country and therefore very popular. The surf ‘break’ is at the northern end and on busy days there are canoeists, surfers and body boarders competing for the best waves. At this end, there’s a rocky promontory to climb on. At the quieter south end, there are some nicely sheltered bays. Dog restrictions apply to the entire length of the beach between 1st May and 30th September.

rhossili-bay

Great for walking and beach activities

Rhossili Bay – Wales – At low tide there is a huge expanse of beach. It is possible to walk across the bay to Llangennith or even cross onto the Worms Head. Keep an eye on the tide though, to ensure that you don’t become cut off. There is always some sand, even at high tide. It is very popular with surfers. Many different birds nest on the cliffs, so don’t forget your binoculars!
