So needless to say beach holidays in Wales are very well catered for, offering a coastline with more than its fair share of Blue Flag beaches; some 45 beaches and five marinas have currently been awarded this accolade in Wales.

The Blue Flag is awarded annually and is the highest accolade for beaches. It is based on a total of 34 criteria including bathing water quality, effective management of beaches and beach safety. So you, your family and friends can be assured of a superb and safe beach holiday in Wales. And we can offer you some superb coastal cottages in Wales to match!

In addition to prestigious Blue Flag beaches Wales has some fifty beaches that have received the Green Coast Award. This award recognises beaches of the highest environmental quality.

Award winning beaches can be found along the whole length of the Welsh coastline catering for all kinds of holidaymakers; from families who like to picnic on the beach and enjoy safe coastal waters for the children to water sports enthusiasts who love to surf and sail.

Wales has the lot - the typical seaside nostalgia of ice creams, bucket and spades and Victorian piers on the one hand, which have been attracting visitors for generations to wide open spaces with quiet stretches of sandy beaches and stunning coastal paths along rugged cliff tops on the other, ideal for those that want to escape, chill and re-connect with nature.

And of course you can enjoy your holiday cottage on the Welsh coast at any time of the year; what could be better than a bracing autumn walk on the beach with the dog before returning to your cosy cottage for a pot of tea and hot buttered toast!
