The weather wasn't exactly tropical yet the beach was very welcoming. Very clean, accessible (not with a buggy mind!) Lovely outlook with parking nearby.

A very pleasant walking beach with great views just across to Barmouth and up the estuary. Free car park right behind the beach at the end closest to Barmouth.

Nice once you get over the cobbles & work out where the doggie friendly parts are. Was not at all busy despite it being peak season.

Great spot much less crowded than the beach in Barmouth when the sun is out. Nice spot to get a bit of a tan and look back toward Barmouth.
