Welsh coast 'is Europe's leisure playground'
People who have enjoyed stays in hotels in Wales have spoken highly of the country's coastline.
According to a spokesman for the South and West Wales Marine Leisure Federation David Reed, tourists who have visited the country have said that there is a lot to do in Wales.
He stated that the Irish Sea, on the coast of Wales, was particularly popular among holidaymakers, with people saying it is "the new marine leisure playground of Europe".
Mr Reed suggested that this was down to the many facilities on offer on Wales' shoreline, including lots of castles to explore, places to enjoy going out on boats and water sport centres.
He added that its wildlife and "stunning seascapes" are also what make Wales "special".
Earlier this month, the Office for National Statistics revealed that the number of overseas residents' visit to the UK rose by ten per cent over August 2010, reaching 7.7 million - with many of these tourists likely to have chosen to visit Wales during their break.
