Secret Cove Strolls

by Webmaster, 11th January 2017

The work of nature has, over centuries, carved out an intriguing coastline, with many of Wales’ smaller, hidden inlets offering the perfect secluded spot

The Welsh coastline is dotted with beaches, bays, inlets and creeks that vary from lengthy expanses of golden sand to tiny rocky inlets. These beautiful bays help to give the coastline its unique character, so why not explore some of the smaller coves along our coast? 

Our trio of coastal walks this month takes us first to Broughton Bay on the Gower Peninsula near Swansea. Next, we head a little farther north to the Ceredigion coast. And for our final walk, we head north again to Anglesey, an island packed with charming beaches and coves. Just click on the following route numbers for print-ready PDFs...

Route 1 - Explore the stunning Blue Pool, one of Gower’s beautiful hidden coves 

Route 2 - Acquaint yourself with one of the Ceredigion coast’s prettiest coves (pictured above) 

Route 3 - Enjoy this lovely Anglesey ramble to Red Wharf Bay
