A. Holly Bay
The café here serves delicious meals and sandwiches! The water’s calm in the bay, perfect for people wanting to swim across it – around 2 km! However, it’s very deep, so is only suitable for strong swimmers. There are often sand artists here, and horses for hire to take you along the beach.
This beach is popular with families with young children and people who aren’t strong swimmers, as the water is warm and not deep. Bring your own food to the picnic area, or try the great snacks at the café. However, the nearest car park is quite a walk away.
C. Barmouth Beach
This beach often has displays of animals and birds – skillfully made from sand, which you can also learn how to do. It’s also the perfect place for lying in the sun – or why not explore the beach paths on foot for an hour or two? The view are fantastic.
D. Westley Beach
There are distance swimming, sailing and surfing sessions for people of all levels, and the beach is also famous for sculptures made of sand, which artists display every weekend! It’s easily reached from the car park through a lovely wood, which you can explore on foot when it gets cooler.
E. South Beach
The sea here offers safe swimming and sailing, even for beginners, but there’s still plenty to do when you want a change from sunbathing. A teenagers’ beach club offers sports like cycle rides, volleyball and beach chess – great for everyone getting to know each other!
This beautiful beach offers safe swimming. And when you fancy a change from sunbathing or watersports, there’s a funfair nearby, and beautiful gardens to walk though, with tables and chairs where you can eat your own food. Leave your car by the gardens, and you’ll be on the beach almost immediately.
G. Silver Sands
This beach has a sea temperature slightly higher than other coastal areas, and with its gentle waves it’s perfect for children. There’s plenty to do, too, with play leaders offering games to entertain younger ones, and surfing and sailing available at all levels, including beginners. The snack bar is excellent, too.
H. Maple Sands
Adults keen on horses love this beach, with its daily riding sessions. At certain times, the sea leaves warm-water pools on the beach, perfect for children to play in, but the water further out is deeper, for more challenging swimming. And the teenagers’ beach club offers group activities, like making sand sculptures – great for making new friends!
