This is a fun and full exploration of Merthyr Mawr taking in two castles, stepping stones, sand dunes, the beach, the Wales Coast Path, the ocean and the gorgeous picture postcard village of Merthyr Mawr with it’s quaint church and thatched cottages!

There will likely be time for a cafe visit at the end of the day for those who crave more chit chat and cake!
