When imagining gorgeous beaches, countries including Barbados, the Maldives and Hawaii are likely to spring to mind. But let’s not forget the beautiful scenery right here on our doorstep. Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire, Wales, has been named one of the best beaches in the world.
The beach appears alongside locations in Greece, Mexico and Tahiti in the list of top 25 beaches, compiled by travel magazine Passport. It’s described as a “revelation”, with “a luxuriant curve of sand, topped by dunes and grasses on hills that make it feel immensely private.”
Barafundle Bay is accessible only via a half mile walk from the nearest car park, and is backed by sand dunes and pine trees, adding to its magical feel. And it obviously has the team at Passport coming over all poetic: “The long stretch of cliff known as Stackpole Head sticks straight into the sea like an arm. A little boulder sits jauntily offshore. The waves crash against the smooth sand. Your company here? Twelve people, four dogs, and a visual overdose of beauty.”
Who needs a tropical island when you’ve got Wales close by.
