  • In October on the Welsh coast you can expect some gales and we got a few. However, picked a relatively dry period and had a short walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. Several surfers and dog walkers...

  • Visited this beach back in January, and while it was freezing, with a very cold wind, it was absolutely worth it to see the sunset. Due to the weather we were some of the only people on the beach, but I can imagine it being packed in the summer as it is beautiful. Would definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area.
  • This has to be one of the most westerly beaches in Wales, spectacularly set overlooking the top of Ramsey Sound, with many outlying rock stacks and islands to attract the eye. The sand remains dry at most stages of the tide, which is unusual on a coast mainly known for wet, fully tidal beaches. The water is crystal clear and excellent for a cooling dip. Access by the coast path, or directly on the road from St David’s. The Flecsi bus runs here in the summer months.
