Llanbedrog Beach - Gwynedd

Llanbedrog was put on the map in the 1890s when a tramway was erected here by Solomon Andrews meaning that people could access this town from neighbouring Pwllheli. Located on the south coast of the idyllic Llŷn Peninsula, Llanbedrog Beach has lost none of its former charm. You can expect vast swathes of golden sands that give way to shallow seas that are ideal for swimming in the warmer months.

The beach is understandably popular with families and, in addition to sheltered bathing waters, younger visitors can get a National Trust “Family Fun Adventure Pack” upon entering the car park at the end of the beach. Here you will find a range of beach themed activities including leaf trails and wildlife games.

Nature enthusiasts will also find plenty to interest them at Llanbedrog Beach as the sands are the home of birds like oyster catchers as well as curlews which wander the beach looking for food.
Just off the main beach you will find winding paths that lead to lush woodlands and heaths along the headland. One of the best walks from Llanbedrog Beach includes the ramble up to Mynydd Tir y Cwmwd to the famous Tin Man sculpture which affords stunning vistas back over the wider Cardigan Bay.

Llanbedrog Beach also has a range of amenities that make it easy to use and you will find a cafe here as well as disabled access and toilets. One of the signature features of Llanbedrog are its colourful seaside beach huts dotted along the coastline.

Superb beach

Has an outstanding beach bar. Superb, enclosed large bay with wooded cliffs .
Swimming is excellent and few boats!
Only downside was it was very sea-weedy along the tide line.
