Harlech Beach

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. Lovely sand and safe bathing within Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - surrounded by mountainous sand dunes. The 13th century Harlech castle stands on the cliff above the beach and is open to visitors.

Further along the beach there is access to the National Nature Reserve, where a microclimate in the dunes has encouraged rare plants and birdlife. A couple of paths access the beach across the golf course.

Dog restrictions apply.
