The Best Things About Criccieth part two

Criccieth Beaches

Criccieth beaches bare plentiful. Criccieth has beaches either side of the castle.

Both are only a few minutes walk from Porthyraur. See below for videos!

Criccieth beaches are a brilliant place to swim, kayak, paddle board and depending on the weather there might be some surfing waves!

If you turn right from the front door up the hill towards Marine Terrace you will find Criccieth Marine Beach.

 

 

Dogs are allowed on this Criccieth beach all year round

If you look carefully, you may see seals or dolphins.

Thi brilliant photos of the seal near Criccieth Marine beach were posted on ‘What’s on in Criccieth’ in August  and were taken by Dave McGirr

As you continue along Criccieth Marine beach towards Pwhelli there is a large expanse of beach that joins up to the mouth of the river Dywfor.

We often see the seals in this area popping up and own again.

You can walk from Cricieth marine beach along the coastal path following it to the Afon Dwyfor estuary and then through to the main Pwhelli road, passing through LLandystumdwy (previous home of LLoyd George and the Lloyd george museum)

Criccieth Castle Beach

If you step out of the cottage and turn left, walking down the hill towards the life boat station you will find an smaller beach to the right of the slipway directly underneath Criccieth Castle. Dogs are also allowed here all yer round.

To the left of the slipway is Criccieths promenade beach which stretches all the way past the lifeboat station along Beachbank and the Esplanade all the way to Dylans restaurant. This is the beach which has seasonal dog restrictions. Once past Dylans dogs are allowed all year round.

From Dylans you can follow the beach all the way to Blackrock sands When the tide is very low you may be able to walk  round to Blackrock sands but alternatively you can walk up over the hill passing by the Blackrock sands campsite. Blackrock sands is a huge expanse of sandy beach which is one of the few beaches in the UK that you can drive your car onto (charges in peak season). Don’t get caught out by the tide though! Everyyear at least a couple of vehicles have to be retrieved after the tide has come in!
