Known by the Welsh as Cymru, Wales has the Irish Sea to the West, the Bristol Channel to the south, and England on its eastern borders. Home to three national parks - Eryri, the Bannau Brycheiniog, and the Pembrokeshire Coast, Wales is known for having a glorious, yet rugged coastline, spectacular sandy beaches, and wild mountains and moorlands.
