Swansea Bay is a glorious place to start your visit, and holds the title of Watersports Centre of Excellence. Offering sailing, paddle boarding, and surfing, amongst other activities, this is a must-do for any fans of messing around in water. The Bay itself is perfect for soaking up the rays, or a gentle stroll taking in the fresh sea air.
Culture vultures, and those wishing to learn about the history of Wales should head for the National Museum of Wales.

Why not treat a friend - and yourself, of course.
