Gorgeous quiet beach. Shame some fellow users left a good deal of glass bottles and cans behind, though it wasn’t there long after my husband discovered it. Saw dolphins swimming by also

Me and Hubby are regularly visitors to Criccieth. On Tuesday (after our walk along the coastal path), we strolled along Marine Terrace/Marine Crescent which runs adjacent to this section of the beach on the west side of the castle. The beach itself is very stoney....More

Great beach for walking the dog. Peddles, but even better when the tide is out and you can walk all the way along on the sand Lots of rock pools to explore Not very busy when I was there

We walked along the lower pathway and were pleased to see the beach so clean. Evening will find families playing on the beach at low tide. Well worth a visit.

Not much to say really about this beach. It's small and unsuitable for children because of the deep water and lack of sand. It's a steep slope down to the beach from the road and tough going back up again, for somebody elderly.

It's a rather unassuming beach with no outstanding features. Mostly rocky and pebbly. However, it's worth taking a walk along the coast to where the river exits into the sea. The river has dug a channel into the beach. The very fast flowing and wide...More
