Llanbedrog Beach is a delightful place with a wooded backdrop and a distinctive run of colourful beach huts (which can be hired on a daily or weekly basis). Tucked in behind the protective presence of the Mynydd Tir-y-cwmwd headland, it is a sheltered, family friendly spot with shallow and typically calm water.
The beach is south west facing and about 1.5km long. It consists of coarse sand and shale near its top and becoming more sandy lower down. Further along towards the smaller headland of Carreg y Defaid it becomes quite rocky in the low tide area.
As with many of the good beaches in this area, the National Trust is the owner. It is well worth taking a stroll up onto Mynydd Tir-y-cwmwd (which is also owned by the National Trust) and exploring the network of paths – this beautiful heathland is teaming with wildlife and allows stunning views over Cardigan Bay. Be sure to check out the Tin Man sculpture too. Family fun adventure packs can be picked up from the National Trust car park – these contain a variety of interesting activities, including bug hunting, games and leaf trails.
Facilities wise there are public toilets close by and a café/bistro which is open during the summer months. A short walk away at the bottom of Llanbedrog village there is a pub and a mini supermarket shop. There is also a garage by the side of the main road on the Pwllheli side.
There are no dog restrictions on this beach.
