During the bathing season (that’s May to September), our award-winning beaches, marinas and boat tour operators host a range of fun, free activities for visitors and coastal communities.
You might have the chance to learn about precious marine ecosystems, explore new nature trails, help monitor plastic pollution, or roll up your sleeves and get stuck in with beach cleans and restoration projects.
We hope that visitors returning to our stunning coastline will cherish it more than ever and enjoy our beaches and marinas responsibly. Please make sure you leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home with you.
Remember that many beaches have local restrictions in place from 1 May to 30 September.
Visit Wales has a handy guide to beaches that are dog friendly all year round. Of course, whenever you’re out and about with your four-legged friend, please be a responsible dog owner – bag it, bin it or take it home.
All our awarded beaches have visitor safety in mind, it largely depends on the beach and which award it holds as to what to expect. Blue Flag beaches will have either lifeguards or beach wardens patrolling through the bathing season. Safety information can be found at the beach information board.
It is a requirement that at least one Blue Flag beach within a local authority has disabled access to the beach and many beaches have access to beach wheelchairs.
We love our beaches and we are sure you do too.
Small actions can make a big difference. So, why not carry out a #2minutebeachclean next time you’re visiting the coast?
