Free Fun days out in Wales

March 17, 2019 Garreg Goch

The best things in life are free, so the old adage goes. Whoever came up with the phrase Had clearly been to North Wales. Sure it has some excellent attractions that do cost - but you don't need loads of money to enjoy some of the very best things to do.
Beach Combing 
We all love a day on the beach and it doesn't matter what the weather is like, it doesn't have to be boiling hot to enjoy a day at the beach in fact if you go Beach combing it doesn't matter what the weather is like at all , Come autumn and winter North Wales can get battered by some fairly hairy storms. They are dangerous but they can throw up some wonderful treasures from the sea, Enjoy the marvelous rolling sand dunes before heading to the sea front and pick out some gems newly washed up - best be careful there's a few jellyfish about as well and remember to always check  tide times,

Gelerts Grave (Beddgelert)
Deep in the heart of Snowdonia, lies Beddgelert, described as the national park’s loveliest village. Follow a footpath along the banks of the Glaslyn lake to discover the Beddgelert’s most famous historical feature, Gelert’s Grave. As legend has it Gelert was the hound of medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn the Great. One day the dog’s master went hunting, when he returned he discovered Gelert covered in blood and his son’s cot empty. Assuming that the dog had killed his heir the furious prince drew his sword and ran it through the animal. No sooner did Gelert let out his dying yelp, than the prince heard a child’s cry. The boy was unharmed and nearby was the body of a wolf. The remorseful father never smiled again and buried his faithful pet at this spot.

Splash out in wild waters

The Blue Pool, Golwern Quarry, above Fairbourne, Gwynedd, is possibly the finest spot to go wild swimming in Wales. This disused slate quarry is not difficult to find and while cold, the crystal clear and surprisingly deep waters are said to be ideal, especially on a hot summer’s day, it makes a lovely picnic spot. There are plenty of other isolated spots around the region to take the dive. But do take care, there are no lifeguards to hand.
                                    
Go Crabbing
Porthmadog Harbour is a popular Hotpot for Crabbing, the kids and adults will have hours of fun and endless enjoyment, trying to catch the crabs, Armed with just a crabbing line, bucket, and bait, you can set out as if you was hunting jaws, 
Dolphin spotting,
No matter how many times you see a dolphin, it’s a daily summer spectacle – you never get bored. Bottle nose dolphins are so common here, in Wales,  you’d be unlucky not to spot one. You’ll also see seals, and maybe porpoises. And if you’re super-lucky, Orcas, Basking Sharks and Whales. Yes we really have Whales in Wales !

Climb a mountain 
Nobody ever said climbing a mountain was easy (and you shouldn’t believe them if they do). But some peaks are far more accessible and manageable than others. If you’re fit, have trekking experience, and are prepared to sweat, really sweat, there are a number of mountains around Wales with attainable peaks. Cader Idris, Moel y gest , Snowdonia, Crib Coch, Cnicht and many more,
