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 visited these beaches and the information has been gleaned from other sites. Since websites aren't allowed to copy text, any information has to be re-worded and in doing so, some of its meaning is lost, sometimes to the point where it becomes misleading or incorrect. Whilst 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.
