Scott's Bay at Llansteffan
A short walk of about half a mile just round the headland from Llansteffan’s main beach this hidden cove is a perfect location for a romantic picnic, as it is secluded and there’s a castle above the beach. At low tide head across the beach and at high tide over the top. It’s pretty likely you’ll get this sandy beach to yourself so it’s well worth portaging your picnic that bit further. Or if you want to go for the full seaside experience back at the car park there’s Florries Fish & Chips served from a cabin and sure to warm your cockles! Talking of cockling- in the winter pleasure pickers are allowed to pick up to 8 kilos per person per day here!
Picnic tip: Go for a late lunch as sunsets are magical here rivalling anywhere in the world as the wintry sun sets over sea fringed sands.
How to reach: The Green is a free car park on the sea front in Llansteffan… it’s just a few steps to your picnicking paradise.
