Wales has enjoyed a long close relationship with Ireland for thousands of years through its shared Celtic traditions and for more than a century in a sporting context through rugby. Ever thought of heading east to our near neighbours to try out any one of 112 sea view campsites dotted around the Welsh coastline? If that’s the plan best start with a read of the new guide from Vicarious called Sea View Camping Wales, which is a follow up on the Scottish title review last time. From north of Wrexham to west of Swansea practically every cove and inlet has a site to stay and explore.
Sea views are guaranteed along each shore site pitched along the 870 miles featured. For swimmers and other water activities, there are no less than 33 Blue Flag beaches. Remarkably, there is no facility listed between Swansea and Newport in the southern part of the country heading towards the English border.
This booklet sticks to the usual well laid out format with How to Use information outlined first before getting into the numbered listings with contain rates per night and actual site photographs. Author Andy Clarke has done another accomplished job here in putting together the details which includes local attractions and the sites web link. At the back pages there is an A to Z Index and Campsite Submission Forms. All angles well covered.
