We loved this beach over 30 years ago when we visited it with our daughter. A recent visit with our granddaughter was a little disappointing and I think the main reason was it was a Bank Holiday and the weather was wonderful so very busy!...More

This place is amazing. The beach is wide and clean. The water is shallow and safe. We went so our 13 yr old could have a drive in a safe area. You can park on the sand and it only costs £5 for the day....More

One of the best beaches in north wales. Plenty of flat sand and parking on the beach. All you need is some sunshine.

Absolutely love this beach, lots of atmosphere and families. £5 to get on the beach in the summer but stay all day, bbqs and picnics galore.
