LocationWest 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.
