Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 30th April 2020- Mixed bag this week with varied winds from all directions including Westerly and Easterly, this will affect South Wales Coastline for sea conditions and inshore water access across the region. Best place to dive would be in West Wales in Martins Haven and St Brides bay as well with the coastline protected facing towards the North. The swell is also varied this week and will affect mainly South and West facing beaches and again will have little affect on the protected North Facing Beaches in West Wales. Weather is colder than the last few weeks but strong Easterly winds have died down dropping the wind chill.
