Llanbedrog lies on the south side of North Wales's Lleyn Peninsula, just under 3 miles south-west of Pwllheli. There is a popular, mile-long, sandy beach here, stretching all the way around the bay to Pwllheli to the east. At the south-western end of the bay, the Mynydd Tir-y-Cwmwd Headland offers a wide expanse of heather heath and woodland, which has a network of paths to explore, some offering stunning coastal views.
The beach is backed by fields, and the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park provide a beautiful backdrop. There are brightly coloured beach huts along the beach, which can be rented from the National Trust. The relatively warm, shallow waters of the bay make this beach popular with families, as well as watersport enthusiasts.
