What beaches do people recommend are good in Wales.

Ive been to porth crawl surfing before which is a really nice beach a few miles from the main part however the main part is a bit rubbish and run down.

I've only been to ones in the north - some nice beaches up by Aberdaron, okay for body boarding, not much surf though.

For surfing I hear Gower is pretty good, across the bay from Porthcawl.

I take it that you are looking for Surf beaches ???

There are very few of these in Wales as they are blocked off by Ireland so tides tend to cause side ways runs but you do get some beaches like Black Rock Sands where at low tide you can drive along it 10 cars abreast as it is so wide and FLAT
plus there are lots of coves with small beaches especially to the North
there is an interesting tidal run between Anglesey and the Mainland

For me it makes fishing quite interesting with the tidal rip going from right to left some days then left to right the others but then you do get Salmon and Steelhead
