In South Wales you're never far from a mountain or the sea - so it's no wonder walkers, cyclists, surfers and sailors love to come and visit. There is a real buzz about Cardiff , our capital city and the nearby Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Swansea & the Gower, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay all have wonderful clean beaches and some surprising marine life. The shores of Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion include dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, Atlantic grey seals and leatherback turtles. The Brecon Beacons National Park leads to the steep-sided Valleys of South Wales carved by the rivers Rhondda, Taff, Rhymney and Cynon. The beautiful Wye Valley & the Vale of Usk forms the border with Herefordshire & the Forest of Dean.
