Visiting Llanbedrog beach
Llanbedrog’s sandy beach has been enjoyed by generations since the Victorians first started to visit the area. It has sheltered waters and views over Cardigan Bay. Still popular with families today, it’s the perfect place for you to spend a day on the beach.
Visiting the beach
The gently sloping sands provide a great base for a family day at the seaside. The water provides plenty of room for children to paddle. Colourful beach huts have stood on the beach since Victorian times. The huts and chalets have continued to bring colour and brightness even on a cloudy day.
Coastal birds can be seen probing the expanse of uncovered sand at low tide. Hear their distinctive bird song of oyster catchers and curlew who search for food in the sands.
A variety of insects inhabit the woodland and heathland areas that surround the beach. Take a wander through the network of paths to discover butterflies in flight.
Say hello to the tin man
Climb through the heathland of Mynydd Tir y Cwmwd for a better view of the Llŷn peninsula and Cardigan bay. Stop to visit the tin man sculpture who admires the view here.

Bringing your dog to the beach at Llanbedrog
Your furry family friends are welcome on the beach all year round. During 1 April and 30 September your dog will need to be on a lead in the main beach area. A short walk to the end of the beach huts will give them extra space and more freedom to come off the lead if you wish.
