Lovely beach, very clean, kids loved it. Slightly hard to get down to due to pebble ridge but not a huge issue for us but would be more so if you have mobility issues.

It is a beautiful beach with a long stretch to walk and enjoy and would recommend spending a day down there for the beauty and tranquity of the beach.

Lovely little village and the beach is lovely, especially around the estuary. Decent parking, lovely views from the sand dunes and over the estuary. Great view of the Barmouth Bridge, you can also catch the ferry here. Cafe with toilets. Lovely clean sandy beach.
