Clarach Bay and on to Wallog Beach…

A dry day today! Some sunshine but still a bit chilly. We drove through the small village of Clarach and found a small (free) car park just above the beach. The valley backing the beach is a sea of holiday static caravans, so probably best to avoid peak times on this beach!

The beach is a crescent shaped cove covered mostly with pebbles, but a fair amount of coarse sand is exposed once the tide starts to recede. The fast flowing river Clarach runs through the beach separating north from south (seasonal dog ban on south beach) but there is a footbridge. As the beach was empty we spent awhile just tucked away off the main beach – chasing stones of course!

After a while we took a walk along the coastal path, towards Borth looking back to the full extent of Clarach Bay and a little glimpse of Aberystwyth beyond.

A couple of miles or so further on we found Wallog Beach with nobody on it – yippee.

Access was down just a few steps from the path and then beach and more beach to enjoy.

Borth beach was just over the next headland and you could see Aberdovey and Tywyn across the bay.

A lovely walk for a lovely day.

Two thoughts of the day:

Is diesel gradually getting more expensive or is this a north south thing? Or maybe urban rural thing?

Even beaches that aren’t particularly pretty are beautiful, especially when deserted!
