The other day my sister and I went to one of our local beaches here in Wales, for a walk. I always find myself drawn to the coastline and, as a creative person, it inspires and energises me. Llansteffan is a place I have been to since I was quite young and it’s really in the middle of nowhere. People only drive along the road to it to get to the beach or the castle.
If you’re ever in West Wales, and you want an adventure, Llansteffan is a lovely place to visit. It’s really quiet and there are plenty of alcoves and walks on the beach and around it to keep you entertained.
The castle is a short walk away and it’s worth walking up to just to experience the breathtaking views over Carmarthen Bay. It’s also a great place to have a picnic and just sit for a while.
We didn’t walk up to the castle the other day, but stayed close to the beach instead. Maybe next time.
