Llandanwg Beach

Llandanwg, Harlech, Gwynedd, LL46 2SD

Llandanwg, between Barmouth and Harlech, is famous for its church which stands just a stone’s throw from the sea. The beach is sheltered from strong winds, making it a perfect place for relaxation.  It’s popular with fishermen – the local catch includes dogfish, bass, flatfish and mackerel. The beach is accessible by a path through the dunes from a car park. This west facing, shallow shelving beach is a part of the Snowdonia National Park. There are dog restriction areas on the beach. Nearby Mochras – better known as Shell Island – is a popular spot accessible by low-tide causeway, with a beach, dunes and an amazing variety of shells. On Shell Island you will find a large sandy beach, variety of wild flowers and breath-taking views. The area caused a sensation with the British Geological Survey in the 1960’s thanks to it’s research.
