As you may have seen, we have recently visited South Wales and road tripped around! Stopping off in Ebbw Vale, Brecon Beacons and the lovely seaside town of Tenby. We have created this Wanderguide to share the best spots and things to do. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did and happy travelling! :) Kelly & Luke/@roundtheworldwithus

Big Pit National Coal Museum
Kelly:Once in a lifetime (free) experience! We got geared up with our helmets and torches and were lowered 90m into one of the most famous coal mines in the UK!
Image - Brecon Beacons
Brecon Beacons
Kelly:A must visit if you're in Wales and love hiking! One of our favourite National Parks filled with peaks, waterfalls and everything in between.

Ebbw Vale Town
Kelly:A lovely quaint town situated just South of Brecon Beacons National Park, a great place to stop over and do some local sight-seeing.

St Mary's Church, Tenby
Kelly:One of the several beautiful churches in the seaside town on Tenby.
Image - Castle Hill
Castle Hill
Kelly:The perfect spot to soak in the views! From here you can see the North and South beaches which are either side of the Peninsula. You also have an amazing view of St. Catherine's Island which you can see here in the photo!
Image - Harbour Beach
Harbour Beach
Kelly:Pack a picnic, grab your sunglasses and head down to the benches by the harbour. A lovely view and plenty of places for seafood and ice-cream!
Image - St Catherine's Island
St Catherine's Island
Kelly:This island holds an amazing WW2 fort, which you can climb the stairs and visit! If you can't make the stairs, you still have the beach and caves below to explore at low tide. Tip: the Island is only accessible at low tide - you can find the timetable at

Four Waterfalls Walk
Kelly:An amazing hike, but not for the faint hearted! 6 hours later and we had conquered all 4 waterfalls and all hikes in between! Plenty of streams, wildlife and opportunities to have a paddle.
Image - Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall
Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall
Kelly:The last and largest waterfall on the 4 waterfalls hike. Unlike the other 3, you can walk behind this waterfall which was absolutely incredible! If you're up for a day of hiking, then we cannot recommend this enough.
Image - Tenby Watersports
Tenby Watersports
Kelly:You can hire out your own watersports gear in Tenby, and even book several boat tours such as a tour around Caldey island or a Seal Safari!
