Wales is a peninsula on the western edge of England embraced by the British Channel on the south, St. George's Channel on the west and the Irish Sea to the north. All of the craggy coastlines, brilliant beaches and magnificent mountains, including Snowdon Mountain, make Wales a great place for you to get outside and enjoy your surroundings. Nearly any outdoor or adventure sport you can name is yours for the experiencing in Wales: walking, hiking, cycling, fishing, rock climbing, abseiling, caving, coasteering, windsurfing, kite surfing, paragliding, land yachting, jetskiing, skiing, snowboarding, paintball, archery, high ropes courses and even more than 200 golf courses.
Populous South Wales incorporates the capital Cardiff, the cities of Swansea and Newport, Carmarthen Bay and two national parks, Pembrokeshire Coast and Brecon Beacons. The Cambrian Mountains and the attractive coastal resorts of Cardigan Bay are highlights of mid-Wales, while the North has popular seaside resorts like Llandudno and Rhyl, the island of Anglesey and the scenic delights of Snowdonia National Park.
