Harlech's 4 miles of sandy beach has something for every beach lover and is probably one of the most photographed strips of sand in the world.

The 13th century Harlech castle stands on the cliff above the beach and is open to visitors.

Boat sets off for Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) from Porth Meudwy which is around the bay to the right.

A large sandy beach on the west side of the River Dee estuary, with a famous 17th century lighthouse and backed by sand dunes. Facilities include a cafe/restaurant and toilets and dogs are also allowed.

Porth Towyn Beach and self catering accommodation nearby...

Porth Towyn Beach lies on the Aberdaron - Nefyn road, near Tudweiliog. The sand on this beach also "squeaks" when you tread on it, like its more famous neighbour, Whistling Sands. This pet-friendly beach can also accommodate surfers when the conditions are right. As you’re walking from the car park in a nearby field, you will pass many small coves to the right, accessed down the steep grassy slopes from the coastal path.

Cricieth Beach and self catering accommodation nearby...

Cricieth has two beaches, separated by the castle. Cricieth East Beach is the western extremity of Black Rock Sands and you can walk over this far at low tide. The top of the beach is mainly pebbles but there is sand at low tide. Cricieth West Beach is backed by a mainly residential promenade, whilst Cricieth's High Street and shops are not far away. The top part of the beach here has the most sand with lots of large rocks exposed at low tide.
 

Llandudno Beaches and self catering accommodation nearby...

Llandudno is Wales's largest resort, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes with two wonderful beaches.

This dog-friendly beach is nearer Caernarfon and offers good views back towards the hills of north-eastern Llyn, Snowdonia and across to western Anglesey and Holyhead Mountain.

Porth Oer Beach (Whistling Sands) and self catering accommodation nearby...

Porth Oer Beach (Whistling Sands) is definitely one of the most noteworthy beaches on the Lleyn Peninsula as the sand here does actually "squeak" under your feet! Only one other beach in Europe has this same quality and it is caused by the specific shape of the sand particles. You notice the "squeak" best on the dry sand just above the high tide mark.

There is a small cafe/shop on the top of the beach and the National Trust car park is located up a steep little hill. Dogs are not allowed on the beach in the summer months. This beach is popular with surfers if conditions are right and there are plenty of good walks along the coastal path and into the surrounding countryside from here.

There’s a shop and cafe at the top of the beach and a specific section for dogs, south of the slipway. There’s a car park nearby with good access but you will have to pay during the main holiday periods.


Morfa Nefyn / Porth Dinllaen Beach and self catering accommodation nearby...

Traeth Penllech and self catering accommodation nearby...

Traeth Penllech is a long beach on the north side of the peninsula and makes you really feel you are away from it all. This pet-friendly beach has masses of sand at low tide but take care not to be cut off on a high tide. There are some very interesting rock formations and rock pools along the beach to the right as you walk down. Another good beach for surfing when the conditions are right.
