Llanrhystud Beach (South)

This popular beach in Cardigan Bay consists of a long bank of pebbles with sand at low tide. There are two beaches in Llanrhystud, with this, the south beach located, on the southern side of the Afon Wyre river. To the north the coastline is much more rocky.

Llanrhystud is backed by fields and rolling countryside along with a caravan park which provides facilities.

Just to the rear of the beach is a small car park

Quiet and beautiful

Lovely beach no matter the weather or tide. Our 2 dogs always have a great time. A very clean beach with a bin that accepts dog waste.

My favourite beach. Lovely when the sand is out. Equally as nice when it’s not as it’s peaceful
