Season: summer

This beach is recommended by the Marine Conservation Society and the water quality is of a good standard.  The general area is a haven for wading birds, due to the beach’s inter-tidal position at the mouth of Tremadog Bay.  Watersports are popular here and you’ll find campsites, a local pub and shops nearby.  Moody hills lurk across the estuary and retail therapy can be found in nearby Porthmadog.
