24 reasons why Wales should be your next holiday destination - Godyfa - 2016 Aug 14 15:10

1. You could almost be in Italy

Yes, really. The twee coastal town of Portmeirion in North Wales was in fact modelled on an Italian village and on a sunny day the colourful facades of its baroque buildings could almost trick you into believing you’re on the Italian Riviera. Almost.

2. Its beaches are exquisite

A beach holiday might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of visiting Wales, but perhaps it should be: the country’s coastline has some of the finest stretches of sand in the UK. In fact, Gower’s Rhossili beach was ranked the best in Britain back in 2014 and the ninth best in the world (yes, really).

3. Wildlife abounds

Wales’s rugged coastline, windswept islands and verdant valleys offer bountiful opportunities to spot the country’s endemic wildlife, which includes red kites, falcons, puffins, basking sharks, dolphins, orcas and whales (yes, whales in Wales). Top spots include: Puffin Island, The Skerries, Grassholm, Anglesey, Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.
