Beaches

The closest beach to the accommodation is West End Beach which is an isolated pebbly beach. It is approximately a 25 minute walk downhill through fields with steps down onto the beach (sturdy footwear required), while Trefor Beach (a mixture of rocks, sand and clay) takes about 30 minutes down a steep road, or a 5 minute drive. Larger sandy beaches can be found a short drive away. In Summer these can be busy beaches while out of season they are virtually deserted. Despite being popular, they are spacious enough to accommodate crowds and a short walk along the beaches will take you to quieter places.

 

Dinas Dinlle is a huge beach towards Anglesey. There are toilets, carpark, gift shop and chip shop at the busy end of the beach. A short drive along the road will take you to smaller carparks away from the crowds where the extensive sandy beach can be accessed down a bank of pebbles.

 

Pwllheli, Aberdaron, Llanbedrog & Abersoch beaches are situated in seaside resorts. Abersoch in particular is an extremely busy place popular with the surfing/sailing community. Llanbedrog has several beach huts and a £4 National Trust car park.

 

Hell's Mouth is a large sandy beach with soft cliffs and pebbles, popular with surfers. It has a small carpark with no amenities.

 

Black Rock Sands is an extremely popular huge expanse of sand. For a £4 parking fee visitors can park on the beach.

 

Whistling Sands claims to have sand which whistles as you walk on it. We have yet to experience this!

 

Between these beaches there are a number of smaller beaches and coves which are more isolated and relatively unknown.

 

Porth Dinllaen has a beach characteristic of this area (rocks, sand, shingle) which leads to the ever popular Ty Coch Inn. This beach pub serves lunches from spring to autumn and is accessible only by foot via the beach or the golf course situated on the headland.
