Went to Porthemmet today and had a marvellous time. Due to its fortuitous position it always gains from the North Atlantic drift so is always temperate whatever the time of year. The beaches rival the Bahamas. The surf rivals Hawaii due to geographical anomalies. The beach cafe serves food of mythical greatness from Unicorn burgers to Kraken scampi. You must... More

From about midday onward the sun bathes this beach in its wonderful light. Air pollution is normally low so one has to be careful and apply plenty of sunblock, especially at the height of summer. The view from the top of the cliff is outstanding especially when using binoculars. The cafe at the western end of the beach caters for... More
