It might not be known for it, but the Welsh coast has more than its fair share of sublime cascades of all shapes and sizes – we visit three jaw droppers

Not many people think ‘waterfalls’ when considering their next trip to the Welsh coast, but there are a surprising number close to the ocean – some even drop right in!

This is perhaps inevitable, as waves brush the steep, mountainous region of Snowdonia National Park in spots, while further south cliffs often provide a dramatic finale to the flow of a river or stream.

ROUTE 1 – See the famous falls then head up high

ROUTE 2 – Wild and beautiful on the Ceredigion coast

ROUTE 3 – Follow an old road along the scenic Teifi Valley
