I hike Wales. A lot. Enjoy my photos of these great landscapes that inspire and uplift me.

Llangrannog beach

Llangrannog beach, Carreg Bica, Yyns Loctyn and coves

 

This gorgeous landscape was taken just past Llangrannog, on the Ceredigion Coastal Path heading south towards Penbryn. Whilst most of the popular part of Llangrannog beach is not in shot, you can clearly make out Carreg Bica, the distinctive tooth shaped rock, and the somewhat quieter inlets on the Llangrannog beach stretch. The peninsula that dominates the picture is rather iconic around these parts and is known as Yyns Loctyn.

It’s been a while since I updated this website, but I thought I would do so with one of the more well known places in Pembrokeshire, Barafundle Bay. A place famed in the London press for its ‘seclusion and remoteness’; well by my standards it was total gridlock, lol. On the days I’ve been, there is a steady stream of at least… ohh, I dunno, about 15 people coming and going – yeah exactly – it’s crowded 😉 Lol. Anyway, my own snobbery about not having the beautiful Welsh coastline all to myself aside (lol), Barafundle Bay is undoubtedly a stunning place. Something that strikes me everytime I go, is no matter how gray the day, the water is always so blue and luminous.

One can be assured that next time I will resume to normal scheduling and bring you one of the more obscure and remote place in the gorgeous, stunning and mesmerizing Welsh landscape.

Ynys Loctyn

This is an image taken last summer with my old ‘point and shoot’ digital camera of a stretch of Ceredigion coastline just past Ynys Loctyn. You can see the Ceredigion Coastal Path trailing the precipitous cliff edge. On the horizon you can just about make out the arch of Cardigan Bay and the coast along it. On the day I took this picture I could see the northern Cambrian and Snowdonia range. I could also see over to Ireland.

Here are some pictures I took recently at Poppit Beach, which is near St. Dogmeals – a rather striking terrace of a village. I’m rather lucky to visit this beach regularly, and it is not uncommon at certain seasons to have the whole beach to myself; though, avoid at popular public holidays if you like a bit of peace and quiet.

Poppit beach is pretty much the start (or end – depends on ones perspective) of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. You can also see Cardigan Island in the pics. Enjoy.

This landscape of the cliff folds at Ceibwr Bay are particularly stunning and attracts thousands of visitors a year for it’s natural beauty, and geological significance. It’s a part of the striking Nant Ceibwr valley, formed by glacial erosion.

Ceibwr Bay is close to the village of Moylegrove. Ceibwr Bay is also flanked by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, with it’s stunning cliff top walks, part of which at this point in the coastal path, is not for the faint hearted, or sufferers of vertigo!

From Ceibwr Bay, heading south west along the coastal path, you will reach the natural wonder ‘Witches Cauldron’ a collapsed cave.
