2018 Wales Year of the Sea

In 2018 we’re celebrating Wales’ outstanding coastline and inviting visitors to discover epic experiences all around our shores, with special events and attractions throughout the year.

There are dozens of activities to try: sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, kitesurfing, coasteering, stand-up paddleboarding, rib-rides and surfing. Or follow the rivers upstream to the inland shores of our lakes and reservoirs.


Wherever you stay in Wales, you’re never more than just over an hour from the sea (20 minutes from Yr Hen Stablau). With a language and culture that’s the oldest in Britain, a warm Welsh welcome and food and drink made with skill by passionate people… this is the greatest coastal experience of 2018. Welcome to our epic shores.
