Great beaches in Snowdonia
Enjoy Our Spectacular Coastline
Maybe the beach isn't the first thing that you think of when coming to Snowdonia but as the tag line says Snowdonia is "mountains AND coast".
Our coastline has something for everybody no matter what you're looking for. A family style "bucket & spade" type holiday, a winter walk along a deserted beach, somewhere for your dog to run, a cliff top walk, a fishing day, a naturalist beach, wildlife spotting, boat trips, somewhere with a view for a car picnic and more. Ask us for suggestions.
Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau SAC - a Very Special Area
The area of coast from the Llŷn peninsula down to just north of Aberystwyth has been designated a Special Area of Conservation. This is due to the variety of underwater landscapes and the abundance of sea life, including basking sharks, dolphins and porpoises, leather back turtles, seals and lots more. Find out more HERE. Believe it or not the largest turtle in the World was washed up on the beach at Harlech in 1988. It was almost 3m (9ft) in length. They follow the jellyfish (a favourite food) across the Atlantic and are regularly seen further of the beach. See details of this turtle HERE
