This small, picturesque National Trust beach, backed by steep grassy cliffs, is on the Llŷn Heritage Coast. It’s famously known as ‘Whistling Sands’, a nickname based on the sound the granules make underfoot when you walk over its gleaming sand.

This beach’s dramatic English name is based not just on its semicircular shape resembling a wide, open mouth. Its hellish dimension comes from a savage, south-westerly aspect that offers precious little shelter to sailors.
