Life's a beach...

I promised you beaches yesterday and beaches you shall see!


This is Newgale, one of the widest, sandiest and sandcastle-friendly beaches we've found. No matter how sunny, how many people there are, there always seems to be space on the beach... at least, at low tide. The carpark, however, can be a different matter.


We've also visited the slate-black beach of Abereiddy before, which is worthwhile if you want a change from yellow sand...


... and blue sea. This is the so-called 'blue lagoon' (looks green to me!) which is famous for watersports, apparently.


And - maybe not a beach - but nearby Porthgain is always worth a visit, too. Very good pub there (The Sloop) apparently (not that I'd know)...


And another place less beach than harbour (but, frankly, if the kids can find a bit of sand to dig up they're happy) is Solva...


Back to beaches, and there can't be many finer than this...


Broadhaven lives up to its name, being broad (at low tide) and a veritable haven of tranquility and calm... which you'll need, because getting there isn't easy!


All these beaches look empty in our photos and - if so - that's probably because we're often in the habit of doing as the French do - going late afternoon and staying into the evening. The sun's not as hot but the sea is warmer. And most of the visitors (having been there all day) have gone home.

So far, we've only mentioned Pembrokeshire. But our tour also took in the Gower and so to finish, how about Three Crosses...



There are many, many more of course. We've done no more than scratch the surface. But it's been a pretty good summer for beaches so, if the weather holds, you can have these recommendations on us!

Hwyl fawr!
