Wales cannot be seen in a day, so do not try. The problem is usually that you are in too much of a hurry. Look at these three maps above and you will see why Wales cannot be "done" in a day

Stone walled villages, glorious beaches, sandy coves, the splendid moated castle of Beaumaris

A twenty mile stretch of long sandy beaches, broken by the occasional headland
