Criccieth Beach

Criccieth, Gwynedd, LL52 0HU

Criccieth’s two beautiful beaches are separated by its prominent – and still powerful – medieval castle, perched on a small headland. The eastern beach is pebbly and better for children, since its shallow water makes it a safer place for them to play. Here you’ll find the Lifeboat Station and a convenient car park. There is also a craft exclusion zone and restrictions on dogs. The western beach, a mix of sand and pebbles, extends along Marine Crescent to Marine Terrace Both beaches are sheltered from the prevailing westerly weather and are lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. At low tide they are popular with walkers who come to take in the magnificent views of Cardigan Bay, the mountains of Snowdonia and Mid Wales.
