If you're looking for a quaint, gorgeous fishing town in Wales (of which there are many of) then do yourself a favor and let Borth-Y-Gest be on your list. In terms of dining/shopping there isn't much there, but if one parks their car and wanders up to the church (which sits at the top of a hill along the coast) then they can begin a long one if the most magical trails that exist. The beaches are quiet, the wind is brisk, and the air is fresh with a slight salty mist. The sea stretches for miles before you as you wander along damp trails and through crevices in the mammoth boulders that proudly dot the coast. The sand is tightly packed so you can walk across it without fear of sinking, and if you listen closely then you can make out the sound of a waterfall nearby. The trail visits cove after cove in an endless walk of beauty and quiet, and yet it also features a rugged quality of natural uneasiness.
