Top Surf Spots in Wales

With over 1680 miles of coastline it is no surprise that Wales has a plethora of wonderful beaches and one of the most popular activities is to get out onto the waves. Surfing is so much fun, whether you are a beginner on a bodyboard or an experienced wave rider, and the whole family can join in.

Those in the know are in agreement that we have some of the top surfing spots in the UK - thank you surfguru.co.uk!

Caswell Bay, close to Swansea on the Gower is a great spot for children and novices to have a go at the spot with plenty of shallow waves to catch. The sandy beach is popular with families and there are plenty of surf equipment hire shops in the area.

Ogmore Rivermouth, along the Glamorgan Heritage coast, is one for the more experienced surfer with fast flowing currents and rip tides. If you can get out past the river at high tide you can expect a high standard of surfing.

Broadhaven is a fabulously long sandy beach in Pembrokeshire and offers some great wedge waves that can be very powerful and not always the spot for beginners if the waves are high. A very popular spot for surfers.

Freshwater West, again in Pembrokeshire, played host to the 2015 Welsh National Surfing Championships. An exposed and usually windswept position ensures consistent conditions for some truly world class surfing.

Another couple of places well worth a mention, and favourites of Gwen Spurlock (three times winner of the women’s UK Pro Surf Tour), are Newgale in Pembrokeshire a great beach for beginners and Hell’s Mouth on the Lleyn Peninsula, not as scary as it sounds with some mellow waves!

The following properties are all within a mile of the sea but if you do have a particular destination or activity in mind please do call us on 01686 628200 and we will find a cottage just right for you.
