Went back to Caswell Bay last night. I thought the really hot day might have triggered something. Another very dark night (no moon). Stayed until 1am and had a swim. Some luminescence but not a great deal. Still a treat though. The beach was busy last night so no skinny dipping this time! ... See MoreSee Less

As mentioned before no daily post at the moment unless we get an influx of sightings. So please post sightings on this thread for the time being. A surprise sighting was at Tenby recently, worth a check if you are local? Just a reminder, tides and moon have no real effect on if it will be seen and its been seen at 10pm as well as 4am! Any location is as good as another, just needs people to be out looking, there is no timetable or dead cert location at the moment, have fun and keep artificial lights to a minimum. ...

We thought last day of trying so we’ll try another beach and ended up trying Newton! All I can say is amazing! What an experience! I have seen the photos and stuff but to actually see it yourself it’s just amazing! Thank you to the people in this group for posting and updating I finally seen it!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ ...

Can anyone that is heading to Newton beach please be really careful, we are on a really low tide in the early hours and there is quicksand which is dangerous and you can get stuck in it If you go straight down to the sea from the slipway it's across going towards the left. This is at low tides only so please be very careful. It is a very old river bed that is thick black gloopy mud - but to look at is sandy. I'm pretty sure there's a warning and map of this area at the top of slipway. ... See MoreSee Less

Took our sea kayaks up west shore Llandudno and to the NW corner of the Great Orme. Some brilliant bioluminescence from the bow waves and each paddle stroke, especially out of the moonlight. It started about two thirds of the way along the journey and same on return. This area can also be accessed from the cliffs or along foreshore....definitely worth it especially as we combined it with sunset/moonlight swim and late BBQ. On the water (for the bioluminescence search) between 23:00 and 01:00hrs. Note we are qualified, experienced and local sea kayakers having assessed tide and forecasts carrying full safety equipment. ... See MoreSee Less
