Wales has become the most desirable destination during post-lockdown and once you have stepped foot on this land you will soon see why. Here’s the list of my favorite beaches in the southwest of Wales!
Three Cliffs Bay
This, without a doubt is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches I’ve ever seen. Miles of golden, sweeping sands, beautiful landscapes, incredible views, a perfect place if you’re looking to escape the crowds.
A short drive from St Davids, absolutely stunning, family friendly, sandy beach, perfect for surfing, swim and a long walk along the coastline.
Mumbles Beach, Swansea
I may not be biased with this one, as Swansea is just a very sentimental place for me and Konrad. We used to come here very often at the beginning of our relationship 8,9 years ago. I love the little city of Swansea, but Mumbles Beach is just something else.. It’s never too crowded, and even if it is, the beach is big enough to find your own, quiet space. A perfect place for relaxing afternoon, breakfast at the The Secret Beach Bar & Kitchen or a fancy dinner at Grape and Olive Restaurant overlooking the marina.
Blue Lagoon, Abereiddy
Standing on the cliff, looking down at the clear, blue water was just breathtaking. Spectacular views, loads of watersports activities, loved the vibe, definitely worth a visit.
New Quay, Wales
Don’t get it twisted with Cornwall’s Newquay (although both are gorgeous!) – this New Quay in Ceredigion, Wales is a gem that reminded me of Positano, especially during sunset – so romantic! Beautiful, sandy beach and a harbour make New Quay a delight to visit at any time of year. Another reason of why you should visit this place is that the Bottlenose Dolphins are often seen here!
Our unplanned, fortunate discovery, spotted on the way back from Solva. Pretty, little Harbour with incredible coastal views located only 40 miles from the New Quay! An ideal place for a short walk.
