Ever since Rob Smith's book 'Secret Beaches - Wales' was published in 2012, the term 'Secret Beaches' has been coined by many websites, each with their own list. Some of these beaches (such as Brandy Cove - Gower, Watwick Bay - Pembrokeshire and Traeth yr Ora - Anglesey) are now listed in so many places, they're hardly 'secret' any more. Most of these internet guides have been compiled by people who've never actually visited these beaches and the information and images have been garnered from other sites. These para-sites (as I call them) rarely check or update their pages, and are usually full of mis-information. Any beach guide which doesn't use its own images is best avoided.
While Rob Smith's book makes good reading, he clearly hasn't explored the entire coast of Wales, as he's missed some of the best ones. Here then, is the ultimate list of secret beaches. Many of these won't be found anywhere else.
