Nice clean beach with paths available to walk along. Goes through the small town at one end where the shops are located.

What a place to sit and have your morning fry-up, a view to die for, it doesn't get better. Breakfast was well priced and plentiful, try it for yourself 👍😀

A very clean beach with interesting rocks at intervals which added interest. On a clear day you can see Harlech castle on the opposite shore.

Another great Welsh beach. Excellent rockpooling at the far end of the beach where dogs are welcome.

The beach is quite big with a nice promenade and a restaurant at one end. The castle is at the other end and a lifeboat station.

I didn't see any signs saying they couldn't go on the beach. Also there were dogs there when I was there.
