Llangrannog would have started life as a rural village attached to a port, but nowadays the beach here is the main draw and one of the best loved in Ceredigion. The beach here sits below a series of craggy cliffs and on what is part of the scenic Wales Coast Path.
Llangrannog beach is a family friendly stretch of sand which has lifeguards over the summer months. As well as being ideal for all the usual beach activities and bathing, The Beach is popular for watersports including surfing. You can also go sailing here and due to the fresh winds in the area and the slipway.
At low tide Llangranog links to Cilborth Beach to the north and there is a cliff top path between the two beaches.
Llangrannog sits close to neighbouring Ynys Lochtyn which is a small peninsula with and island just off its coast which is home to a seal colony.

One of the best

A lovely beach with golden sand and caves for the kids to explore. The north side is dog friendly. At low tide you can walk to the next beach. Nice walks over the cliffs. Parking in the upper carpark is free if you're happy to walk half a mile. Lots of nice pubs and cafés.

Stayed in a lovely house over the cliffs with grandchildren surrounded by fields and sheep, loved the cliff walks and beach, great memories for life.
Beware of the Parking Scam at this beach
JoanneNov 08th 2022
The car park machine in the village by the beach doesn’t accept card and there is no phone signal to pay by phone. On the day we visited it wouldn’t accept cash either so you were left trying to pay by internet with only a very limited and unreliable connection if you stood in a specific spot by the machine. You then get charged £100 from One Parking Solution for not paying in the first 10 mins. It seems notorious for this unscrupulous parking firm which is a shame.. We won’t visit again.
Dogs on Llangrannog beach

Its too small for dogs to be running loose.
Dogs often run across from the dog ’ friendly ’ side to the supposedly dog free side.

Family friendly? I’ve seen a dog friendly beach cleaner and less smelly.

Great beach and thankfully dog friendly, they just need to ban screaming kids and it would be even better lol.
Free car park ten minutes walk up the steep hill or a pay and display for the lazy right next to the beach. Would be better if the pay and display was for disabled and locals only so there would be less car dodging walking down from the free car park that would also keep unwanted traffic from the tiny road to the beach.
Packed, dogs barking and weeing

Beach was packed and full of dog owners though it said it was dog free. Saw dogs urinate in sand near where children were playing. Sea beautiful but they really must enforce the no dog rule as they spoil and dirty the beach.
