Llwyngwril Beach - Gwynedd

Llwyngwril is a pebbled beach located a few hundred meters from the village (of the same name). As the tide goes out it reveals a large number of rock pools which children will enjoy exploring on a family day out.

On the right conditions the beach can produce some good waves, making it popular for surfing, although a number of boulders in the water can pose a risk so surfing here it is best left to experienced surfers. The beach is also popular for walking, being dog-friendly and offering excellent views of the surrounding mountainous countryside.

The closest parking and public toilets are in the town of Llwyngwril. There is also a railway station along the Cambrian Coast Line, where the trains stop on request. A path passing the railway station, gives access to the beach from the town. Llwyngwril has shops and a pub. There are a number of caravan parks in the area, some of which have direct access the beach.
