Very often I find myself needing to escape to the seaside and luckily for me Wales has so many different beaches to go to! Today, I visited a beach I haven’t been before; The Dunraven Bay. It is located at the west side of South Wales somewhere in between Cardiff and Swansea. Its beautiful location and the fact that it is only a 40 minute drive away from the city, make it ideal for a quick escape at the sea.
The beach itself is backed by large round boulders shaped by the powerful waves, and ofcourse dramatic cliffs. When the tide is out there’s a great amount of beach to explore, with lots of rocks, and small pools of water! To the east of the bay you will also find the Glamorgan Coastal path. If you decide to follow it, you will discover the ruins and gardens of the Dunraven Castle. From there, you can go up the cliffs on that side for even more spectacular views.
Today, I explored mainly the main beach and hiked up at the other side of the cliffs where I enjoyed some spectacular views of the bay and area in general. You can visit the beach any time and day of the year, as long as the tide is out. However, try to catch the sunset, as it is particularly beautiful. As always, I aimed to take some photographs which you can see below. These were shot using the sonya7ii camera, the djispark, and iphone11 pro.
I also made a spontaneous video from that day, which you can see here:
Until next time..
