This seaside resort has a wide sweeping bay lined with colourful Victorian villas and a marina popular with pleasure boaters who make the most of the mild climate and warmer waters to spot the local sea life. The National Library of Wales has numerous exhibitions and a variety of guided tours and events, including family friendly workshops and play activities. Further entertainment such as films and concerts can be found at the Aberystwyth Arts centre.

At the end of the promenade is the iconic electric cliff railway, where visitors can reach the top of Constitution Hill and grab a snack at the café. The castle ruins are a lovely spot for a picnic, with views out to sea and a children’s play area with putting green. Slightly further from the town is the Pen Dinas Hill Fort

Llanerchaeron is an 18th century villa with pleasant walks and a working farm, also worth a visit is the forestry centre at Bwlch Nant yr Arian which is popular for walking and cycling with an impressive red kite feeding station on site. The Vale of Rheidol steam railway line runs inland to other nearby villages, also to the Devils Bridge Falls. The Penglais Nature Reserve is open all year round and offers a network of woodland walks and footpaths to choose from. For something different pop by the Magic of Life Butterfly House which is home to hundreds of tropical insects. The Animalarium Zoo at Borth is a great day out for the children, with daily feeding demonstrations and play areas for the younger ones.

West Wales

This region includes Swansea which is the second largest city in Wales, also in the bay are Mumbles and Gower, both with pretty waterfronts ideal for a seaside holiday. Cefn Sidan is the longest beach in Wales with stunning views out across North Gower, and just inland is Pembrey Country Park. The Carmarthenshire region has such a fantastic selection of beaches and gardens; it is often referred to as the Garden of Wales and is home to the National Botanic Gardens and just borders the Brecon Beacons National Park. The long stretches of beach are particularly popular with visitors seeking a surfing or sailing holiday.

Pembrokeshire is the only coastal national park in Britain, with dramatic seaside paths and hidden coves to discover. There are also plenty of unspoilt ports and market towns along the way. The park also just touches on the Preseli Mountains, this wild heath and moorland is just perfect for walking opportunities and those who prefer an inland trek away from the coast.

Being surrounded on three sides by sea, this is a foodie haven with numerous festivals taking place all year round and fresh produce markets such as the Beer & Cider festival at Haverfordwest Castle and the quirky Really Wild Food festival.
