While in Wales, hire a car and take the opportunity to visit some of Great Britain's best beaches.
Porthcawl's beaches, and Swansea Bay are within easy driving distance of Cardiff, and it’s well worth heading on to the beautiful Gower Peninsula while in Swansea. Llangennith, Oxwich, and Three Cliffs (pictured) are just three of the many beautiful Gower beaches that are perfect for a day by the sea.
Head further west and you’ll find the delightful Cardigan Bay, and even further afield in North Wales you will find Colwyn Bay, with its host of traditional seaside attractions.
