Saundersfoot in 20 clicks

Hello, Hello!

Another week and another entry about Wales! We are turning Welsh pretty quickly and we are proud to say it loud. There is nothing to be ashamed of, anyway. Wales is one of the most beautiful places in the UK and discovering it was a true pleasure.

Last week, we have reviewed the picturesque sea side resort of Ogmore-by-Sea, a real Welsh pearl sadly overlooked by tourists. Let’s hope after a bit of marketing, Ogmorians (is this how you call the local residents?) will have their hands full when the next season comes! If you’d like to read the two part blog, please use the links below. What can you find inside? Lots of breathtaking pictures, ghost stories, beautiful ruins, great food and views to die for!

Today, we will visit a very popular beach resort called Saundersfoot. This beautiful village is located in Pembrokeshire, West Wales and is probably the most popular beach destination in the UK. Booking for summer holidays starts in January and by April, all places are gone till December! Lying in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Pembrokshire has been voted the most picturesque part of Wales by TripAdvisor and we completely agree. Taking a short break from castles, legends and ghosts – please enjoy this short and sweet entry  – Saundersfoot in 22 clicks!

Ladies cave is a small chevron fold located on the southern end of Saundersfoot beach. You can only get here at low to mid tide, it is a perfect picnic location. The cave was named in Victorian times, ladies and children arriving at the beach would look for a shelter there during the rain. It is made from mud stone and limestone and is quite spectacular.
