Family holiday in Wales

I'm after any suggestions of destinations of places to visit in Wales this summer with a 9year old. He loved the beaches in Cornwall last year but I don't know where's good in Wales where there's alternative stuff to do if the weather is bad.

Pembrokeshire has fantastic beaches and a good choice of small villages and larger seaside towns. Plenty of things to do if it’s not beach weather- a nine year old would love Pembroke Castle.

there are huge sandy beaches between Aberystwyth and Porthmadog, with a selection of castles and steam trains (all or any of which may require reservations, certainly in the early part of summer).

If he's into low flying jets NATO often put on "displays" over the A487 near Minnfford slightly inland and about half way up this stretch of coast. Search for "Mach Loop" in Google Maps and Youtube, the MoD publishes details of when this MIGHT happen , check LFA7 here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/operational-low-flying-training-timetable

Another vote for Pembrokeshire. I live in Wales and work for a large UK wide organisation. So any colleagues with young kids from other parts of the UK visit Pembrokeshire each year and many for repeat visits. And other thing, Folly Farm is a must with young children.
