There’s so much to enjoy in the pretty seaside towns and beaches of Wales. Our coastline isn’t just beautiful, it’s fun, with sand to cartwheel across, dunes to picnic in and waves to hop through - the perfect place for a UK beach holiday. And it’s the best outdoor classroom ever – there are fossils to find, rockpools to explore and wildflowers to identify.

We think we have the best beaches in the UK - There’s just nowhere better to relax with your loved ones on a sunny day.
