Top Welsh Beaches to Visit

Ross Adams |

Here in our hometown of Wales we are lucky enough to have some of the UK's best beaches not too far away from us.

Some of our personal favourites are Barafundle Bay and Freshwater West both in Pembrokeshire and Pendine Sands in Camarthenshire.

Pendine Sands, Camarthenshire

Pendine sands has a stunning 7 mile long stretch of beach along the Camarthenshire coast line. Due to its firm flat sands, this beach was used for land-speed records in the early 1920s and can be driven on today in designated areas.

Barafundle Bay, Pembrokeshire

Voted many times as the best beach in Britain, Barafundle Bay is a small but beautiful bay backed by sand dunes. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the coastal path at this beautiful untouched beach.

Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire

Freshwater West is a perfect drive through the sand dunes to this surfers paradise. The south-westerly facing beach has one of the best waves in the country for surfing. You can also enjoy searching in the rock pools and exploring the sand dunes. Freshwater West Beach was the location for the penultimate Harry Potter film instalment and is the final resting place of Dobby the house elf. Dobby's shrine can be found among the dunes.

Three Cliffs Bay, Glamorgan

Situated on Gower, Swansea. Although known for its strong tides, Three Cliffs Bay has a shoreline of sand dunes and salt marshes. At low tide you can walk through one of it's signature limestone cliffs.
