South Wales: Three Cliffs Bay & South Wales tips

Cowbridge - The cat, you and us

And the dreaded day of wrapping up our summer adventures has arrived, we are today sharing the last batch of pictures we took during our trip at South Wales and also our tips and links in case you’re lucky to visit the beautiful land of the red dragon soon (or not so soon, because you know castles are timeless, ha!)

Three Cliffs Bay

The same day we visited the Worm’s head on the afternoon we went to Three Cliffs Bay also in the Gower Peninsula, one of those postcard perfect beaches with rocks and caves that the Welsh coast offers. Our visit however was not that ideal because it had gone back to raining & walking medium-long sandy paths with rain is not in my favorite list of activities.

In addition when we arrived it was too late and the tide was already too high to cross the complete beach, so we had to limit ourselves to the first part. Don’t take into account my poor complains, its beauty was undeniable and I couldn’t help but highly recommending this visit! Make sure to plan an earlier visit and you will be floored.

Booties strike back ;) and a closer look to the tide blocking us the rest of the beach.

South Wales eating & visit tips

And now our tips for visiting South Wales!

The Bay Bistro & Coffee House - The cat, you and us Crab Sandwich - The cat, you and us

The Bay’s Bistro crab’s sandwich with cereal bread was a good choice :)

The Nash Farm was as charming as their food yummy.

Dani dared to try the ginger beer (wow! strong tongue flavor) while I fell in love with the Elderflower soda.

  • If you think a sign is written in Elvish, that’s Welsh! :) We really liked the fact that all signs were written also in Welsh.
  • You won’t find many souvenir shops or variety for that matter, make sure to grab one if you have the chance. We took home also local cheeses and local brewery beer at Cowbridge, which we think make an awesome gift too.
  • Trust the National Trust :) They are the best proposing lots of different routes with the level of difficulty, times, parking lots and maps.
  • …pack your raincoat and be prepared to befriend many sheep and cows :)

Cows all alone in the middle of a town’s square? Of course! :)

If you ever go to South Wales make sure to let us know, and please add in the comments section any tip you would like to add. Again, kuddos to Pilar for the awesome tips she gave us!

Farewell green paths, white sheep, brown castles and red dragons, we’ll see each other again!

      thanks! It was an amazing & peaceful time. My backpack was a lucky purchase the day before leaving from a local store! I like that it can also be worn as a satchel-ish-ish ;) using only one strap.

    I think I heard that Welsh was the inspiration for Elvish, so I guess that makes sense. And that crab sandwich is making me so hungry!

      Totally makes sense when you see so many consonants in a single word, hahahaha :) Mmm it was my first crab sandwich, can’t you believe it? :) I would definitely eat it again in the blink of an eye ;)

    The rain definitely makes for pretty photos but I understand the reality might of been less pretty. Sometimes during a trip I stop becoming super enthusiastic to take photos especially if I’m tired and a hike or many have been involved (that could be just me though!). I second this crab sandwich making me super hungry! I love that shot that Dani?? (super guessing powers here!) took of the three of you in the cafe with the aqua door! No more wales but your blog, no matter what you guys get up to, is always super amazing to read :) :) I look forward to more adventures!

      Aw, you’re putting a smile on my face today (thanks sweet Fee!). That was definitely Dani taking the picture while us looking pretty tired after the Worm’s head walk. I always admire how Dani, when we are specially tired, can overcome it and keep taking nice pictures (me on the other side totally in your wagon!). Although of course everyone has a limit and his was Cardiff; neither of us had the strength to take a single picture there :S even though we found a Tardis! that was exciting ;P

      ♥ thanks Rae!! It was a nice surprise to find such lovely places :)

  7. haha the written in Elvish thing made me laugh! I grew in up in (west) Wales and all my family speak Welsh apart from me (I went to the English school). You make South Wales look amazing, it’s made me want to take a trip to the Gower! x

      How great that your family speaks Welsh! I would love to hear them talk, I scarcely heard it and when I attempted to read it from the tourists panel I’m sure I was making a fool of myself trying to pronounce it :)
