Experience the magic of Wales

Experience the magic of Wales

The phrase ‘good things come in small packages’ may be cliché, but in the case of Wales it’s absolutely true. 

 

Wales has everything you could possibly wish for in a holiday. You can lose yourself in the pretty seaside towns of Llandudno, Tenby, Criccieth and Porthcawl, with glorious beaches and warming atmospheres. Or delve into Wales’ epic heritage with more than 600 castles to explore, including the magnificent World Heritage Sites of Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Harlech castles. You won’t find yourself short of things to do here.

Featured Resorts

If you are struggling to decide which welsh destination is for you, look no further. We have added below some of our favourite resorts to help you choose.

Llandudno

Situated on a sandy isthmus between the Great Orme and Little Orme Heads, Llandudno boasts two superb beaches. The shingly North Shore is the busier of the two with its Victorian Pier, boat trips, donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows and much more. The sandy West Shore is quieter with miles of sands and panoramic views of the Snowdonia mountain range in the distance. Llandudno is a highly attractive resort with its magnificent crescent of hotels, broad tree-lined streets and elegant shops all combining to produce a unique atmosphere.

Porthcawl

Located between Swansea and Cardiff, Porthcawl was originally a port for the iron and steel industries and still has some interesting features from that period, including the oldest maritime warehouse in Wales, an attractive harbour and the last coal and gas powered lighthouse in the country. This attractive seaside resort offers numerous facilities, including the world famous Porthcawl golf course, the finest course in Wales and one of several in the area, an expansive sandy beach and Coney Beach, a fairground with a variety of rides and amusements. To the East of the town lies the River Ogmore and the beautiful Glamorgan Heritage Coast.

Tenby

Tenby is a uniquely attractive resort. Its pastel coloured buildings, narrow streets, fortified walls and the quality of the light from its shimmering bays give it an atmosphere which is reminiscent of the Mediterranean. A town whose history is much richer than most seaside resorts is very strong as one ambles around the narrow streets or stops for a drink in one of the many bars or cafés. Tenby has four magnificent sandy beaches and a delightful harbour which is always busy with pleasure craft. Caldey Island monastery, a "must" to explore during your stay.

Criccieth

Criccieth lies on the South side of the Llyn Peninsula with splendid views over Cardigan Bay. It is home to a medieval castle, the castle headland divides the town into two with a pebbly beach to the West and a lovely sheltered mainly sandy beach to the East. Nearby is the village of Llanystumdwy, which boasts a museum devoted to David Lloyd George, the “Welsh Wizard”, whose family once lived in Criccieth. The countryside around Criccieth is breathtaking with fabulous coastal views over Cardigan Bay, awesome mountain scenery in Snowdonia and delightful gardens and castles at every turn.
