As I’m getting older, I’m appreciating more of the wonderful places we have available to us right on our doorstep in Wales. One of my favourite places to visit in South Wales is Porthcawl. It’s a seaside town near Bridgend county that is particularly popular on bank holidays or sunny weekends, even though those are quite rare in Wales. But today I wanted to blog about it for those planning on visiting Wales and for those who perhaps haven’t got around to taking a trip to this cute little destination yet.
I’ve been visiting this town since I was quite young and it has been a family favourite for many years. But it’s not hard to understand why. It’s known for being a holiday destination and despite having numerous hotels with ocean views like the Seabank, it also has a caravan park in Trecco Bay where holiday goers can stay. It also has two beautiful beaches which I know are key attractions for many visitors. Well, it definitely is for me anyway.
I absolutely adore being close to the ocean and I think it’s great to be able to drive to the seaside just for the day when you need a little escape. I visited last weekend with my boyfriend because despite the stubborn cold winter weather, I’ve really missed being by the sea – it always makes me feel more relaxed. So we ended up taking a walk alongside the gorgeous seafront watching the waves. I did manage to sneak in a bag of chips but hey, it’s pretty much the rules when you go to the seaside.
I’m so in love with this little town and I couldn’t help but take a crazy amount of photos. What’s your favourite place to visit in Wales?
