“Just a beautiful beach”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A very large beach, great sand and sand dunes. Not that busy during our visits (can't understand why, but very grateful!). Great for a day with the kids and/or a beach walk following dinner at one of the pubs or restaurants in the town which is on 5 minutes away by car.

“Fantastic Beach!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We planned our trip to Harlech over the August bank holiday week and decided to go to the castle after a few hours on the beach. Fortunately the weather was great (22 degrees plus) so we decided to go for a swim in the sea, which wasn't too cold and the waters were crystal clear. Ok it wasn't as warm as when we were in the sea in Malta three weeks before but it was the first time I have been in the sea in Britain for years. The beach was immaculate - no rubbish whatsoever although bins could be provided - everyone must have taken theirs home with them. There are no real amenities except for toliets at the car park (0.5 miles away) but there is a useful Londis stores for drinks, sandwiches and snacks just before the car park. The beach was relatively empty - a real gem!

“A splendid day at the seaside”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We found this beach by accident and spent a wonderful afternoon on the emptish beaches and lovely waters. Dog friendly although many visitors hasn't cleaned up after their dog visit and the tide carried some faeces down towards the dog zone which was sad. However the sand was excellant and the lack of wind in this sheltered cove was so nice. Will go back but will select area close to no dogs allowed section
