Cwmtydu Beach Car Park

Location description

This car park offers a fabulous location for stargazing, being distant enough from the nearby caravan park and out of sight of any direct lights allows the incredible dark skies above to be enjoyed in all of their glory! We'd like to thank Wesley for his recommendation!
