Great expanse of clean beach. Part of it a designated dog area. 5 minutes walk from car park where there are toilets and usually an ice cream van. Fabulous sand dunes but there are warnings to keep off them. We went in August and it wasn't overcrowded so plenty of space to play cricket etc.

one of the best beaches you will ever find, takes a bit of effort to get up the boardwalk as the sand often drifts over it, the sand is very soft and you can end up wading through it rather than walking on it, but once you are there it is well worth it, soft sand at the top of the beach and firmer near the sea, great for castles or cricket, take a picnic or ust stroll along and forget the world exists for a few hours.

Lovely huge and clean beach with grassy areas for shelter. The left hand side is designated for people with dogs. Parking charge in car park but not excessive, toilets and ice cream van usually there too!

Acres of golden sand, great view of snowdoniaI mountains, and if you walk a little, quiet. Best out of season

A short walk from the car park, over the dunes (not suitable for those who don't like to walk up hill!) brings you to what must be one of the finest beaches in Europe. The great thing is, turn either right or left and after five minutes walk you have the beach to yourself, even in the holiday season and when the sun shines.
