    Fishguard.
    I like St David's as well but it can get very crowded.

    Barafundle or Broadhaven south ?

    Any number of towns and villages in Monmouthshire and Breconshire. Probably my favourite areas or regions, if you can call them that, in Wales.

    Really liked the other Newport (Pembrokeshire) when I visited a few years back now. Used to like visiting family up Denbigh way when I was a young Ďun too.

    Barafundle even better. What about Pwll Du? But neither are towns.

    I agree about Newgale, itís too big, windy and boring with one shiiiite pub. Lots better small villages all over and better beaches

    Re: Best Town in Wales

    The choice coastal towns from St David’s to Aberaeron is pretty impressive, Fishguard, Newport, Cardigan, New Quay plus the smaller gems like Llangrannog, it’s surprising that coast doesn’t rival South Pembs more as a holiday destination. My oldest is living in St David’s at the moment, there’s plenty to do even outside the holday season and during covid.

    Porthcawl is great in the summer but sinks into a maggot ridden cesspit of death in the winter

    Lots of city fans though

    And two good fishing lakes

    Saundersfoot is one of my favourite places in the World.
    Many happy memories of staying in a caravan with my Mam, Dad and Brother when I was a kid.

    Went out Makrel Fishing and one of the kids caught a Garfish...looked like a mini sword fish.

    Next day we went out sea fishing for 3 hrs and Iíve never been so Seasick in my life 😆😆.

    Took my Wife there about 5 years ago with my Mam and Dad just before my Mam passed away and it was just as I remembered it...drizzling and absolutely lovely.

    Garfish are always a good indicator of clean water. As an aside, their bones turn green when cooked.

    It may be tongue in cheek, but it's certainly not a piss take.Screen Shot 2020-10-18 at 10.11.47 AM.jpg
