Without any doubt some of the best beaches in Wales

The Llyn Peninsula beaches are famous for their breathtaking beauty and each have their own individual attractions.


There is a glorious sandy beach at Aberdaron, with two small islands nestling in the bay. This picturesque village has little shops and cafes for you to enjoy, as well as St Hywyn’s church with it’s link to the well known poet R.S.Thomas,

Hell’s Mouth Bay “Porth Neigwl”

Hell’s Mouth is four miles long and is very popular with windsurfers from all over the UK. The beach is overlooked by steep clay cliffs and there is a rocky headland at each end. The miles of clean sand and sea are perfect for surfing, windsurfing, sailing, water-skiing, kitesurfing, kite flying and wake-boarding.


Abersoch is a very popular village seaside resort. You will find more than one great beach here with shops and restaurants to visit. Water sports feature prominently here and there is room for the novice as well as the experienced sailor in Abersoch.


Porthdinllaen is a National Trust beach. It’s a fabulous spot, with golden sands, rockpools and spectactacular views over to the Rivals. It has a rich and interesting history that includes ship building, fishing and smuggling. The Porthdinllaen lifeboat station is situated in a small cove just beyond the bay – perfect for a picnic!


Nefyn is a quiet seaside town with a proud maritime history. The beach here is sheltered and safe – come and sit here and enjoy the view towards the Rivals, three mountains set side by side.

Whistling Sands

Whistling Sands (Porth Oer) is a National Trust managed beach and it is a beautiful piece of unspoilt coastline. There is a car park and a road down to the beach which boasts a small cafe cum beach shop. 

Penllech Beach

This is not one of the well known beaches but we think it’s pretty spectacular. It is completely unspoilt and a walk there is truly good for the soul.
