1. Aberdaron Beach

An attractive little fishing village at the far end of the Lleyn peninsula is situated in a sheltered bay and has a mile long sandy beach backed by sand dunes. Behind these are the delightful village with its church and medieval hump bridge. 

Just to the north you will find the whistling sands of Porthor.


2. Abersoch Beach

A delightful seaside resort popular with sailing enthusiasts, has two long sandy beaches with sand dunes to the rear. There is a lively harbour, narrow streets with interesting shops. 

Views from the bay across Tremadog bay and to the south east across to St Tudwal's Island.


3. Aberdovey Beach

Beautifully situated on a narrow strip of land between the mountains and the sweeping sands of the Dovey estuary. There are lots of beaches to choose from as the sands, backed by dunes run all the way to nearby Tywyn. 

An attractive village with a lovely links golf course.


4 Fairbourne Beach

Fairbourne beach is located about 1.5 miles from Garthyfog with plenty of parking and golden white sand that seems to stretch for miles. This beach is ideal for walking the dog and playing beach sports especially when the tide is out.  

Looking across to Barmouth on the other side of the Estuary, reachable by ferry boat or the Mawddach rail and foot bridge. 


5. Harlech Beach

Long stretches of beach (featured in the televised Visit Wales advertising campaign) here are ideal for sun-bathers and with superb views over Tremadog Bay to Snowdon in the north and to Cader Idris in the south it is a lovely place to visit. 

Nearby Shell Island, reached by a causeway at low tide, has an interesting and wide variety of shells to collect.


6. Barmouth Beach

From the hustle and bustle of the family orientated area of the seafront to the peace and tranquility of the far end of the promenade, Barmouth is a place of great contrast. 

The beaches, apart from at high tide, give wonderful walking as far as Harlech to the north and extensive views over Tremadog Bay.
