Why is it worth to visit Wales?

“Wales, you say? Precisely what is of the value so that I can see in Wales for me to spend my time and sweet capital; in a country I don’t have a clue about, and presumably for good reason.”

Well, I think you should reconsider. You can be sure that everyone who visits Wales does not regret their money nor time, whether they are a beach-lover, forest-hiker, mountain-climber, windsurfer, seeker of things uncommon, a historian or someone who just wants some quality time alone. In short: there is something for everyone in Wales.

What makes Wales worth visiting?

One of the aspects that makes Wales one of the best places to visit is its distinctive landscapes; From coniferous forests, sprawling fields and meadows, to high peaks, and beautiful beaches. Wales is heavily praised for its beautiful coast, Pembrokeshire being one of the finest destinations in all of the UK.

What are the best beaches in Wales?

Not for naught was Castle Beach (in Tenby, Pembrokeshire) named the best beach of the UK in 2019. Of 422 Beaches inspected in the UK, 7 of them, not even including Castle beach, were placed in the top 40 and 3 of them were in the top 15.

People that know me know that one of the things I admire most is the enthralling story of this land, one of once great power and influence, with heart and passion. With Tradition that still is carried to this day. Wales Is a country small yet abounding with activities, destinations, culture, history like nowhere else.
