West Wales beach tops BBC Countryfile Magazine poll
A popular West Wales beach is riding the crest of a wave after being voted number one in a magazine poll.
Whitesands has been awarded Beach of Year by readers of the BBC's Countryfile Magazine.
The beach near St David's is popular with both surfers and families and attracts thousands of visitors every year.
Up against stiff competition from beaches across Britain, it was voted number one by Countryfile readers from a shortlist compiled by Surfers Against Sewage.
The campaign group described Whitesands as "a beach with plenty of rockpools to explore and great coastal walks, while its fantastic panoramas, white sands, green seas and beautiful sunsets steal the show".
