Amazing beach, brilliant views!

We visited here in a very windy day in April. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, it was so clean and it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves too.

May seem a good idea to drive on the beach Until you nearly drive down someones sand hole Bit dirty to be honest On a Nice day Not sure you Would want cars driving past you while sunbathing Good If its bad weather to sit and have a sarnie

Love Black Rock Sands. Drive your car right onto the amazing beach, miles of sand, sand dunes, rock pools, sea. We took kites, great place to fly them. Ice cream man drives up and down the beach, problem is cheapest cone is £2.50! I think a tenner for 4 average ice creams is a bit steep. Take a picnic and... More

Love coming to this beach. Great for a walk or a drive in the car. It is pricey to get your car on the beach but worth it if you're there all day or with children. No parking nearby. Toilet facilities just off the beach. Lovely long beach with catering facilities on the beach - burger van and ice cream... More

Huge sandy shore that you can drive on. Also has sand dunes and caves in the rock. Only downside is that you can get loads of teenagers driving quad bikes.

Good place to go if you've limited mobility and love the beach. Disabled parking free. Five pounds fee to get vehicle onto beach is a little steep but you can stay all day! If you like cliffs and coves turn right open beach and dunes turn left. Low water you can walk to criiccieth 😄

The beach is nice and clean and you can drive your cars on there there is a small price to pay to park on the beach but it is worth it as the beach is kept clean and if you have dogs they are only allow them at the one end.

this beach has so much to offer if you are a fan of the natural coast, walking through endless sand dunes, with little water inlets, vast amounts of far reaching golden sands with the impressive black backdrop of mountains...cant beat it
