All the colours of the rainbow await you on a holiday in West Wales. You’ll find pastel-coloured houses, colourful open fields, bright blue seas and blossoming flowers. Once you visit Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, you’ll find all the colours of West Wales.
One of the most famous seaside towns in Wales, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, is known for its stunning pastel-coloured houses that overlook beautiful beaches. Tenby is a delight – the centre is a maze of narrow little streets with brightly-coloured houses! The crooked little harbour with boats bobbing in the sunset, overlooked by the ruins of Castle Hill, behind, is picture-perfect. Tiny alleys wind back from the harbour, with the larger streets also pedestrianised during the day in summer when the bars and restaurants set up al fresco seating.
The beautifully designed Georgian town of Aberaeron centres around the harbour, with houses painted in striking colours which enhance their splendid architecture. Sailing plays a major part in the life of the town, its stonewalled harbour sheltering yachts for much of the year. Take a boat trip for the opportunity to explore Cardigan Bay’s marine ecology and Heritage Coast.
The Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) is a patchwork of open fields, heather clad mountains and green forests. An area with a rich history and multiple attractions: walking, cycling, caves and ancient monuments being but a few. The area’s outstanding qualities are acknowledged by its designation not only as National Park but also as European Geo Park and Dark Sky Reserve. In Spring the lush pastures and hills of the West Wales countryside positively glow with every imaginable shade of green.
