Attraction Information

  • Beaches icon Beaches

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

At Harlech Beach the golden sands are four miles long and provide a truly superb spot for walking, beach combing, kite surfing and bathing, though there is no lifeguard cover. The sands are backed by a dune system that has been accreting so radically that Harlech Castle, almost a mile inland, was actually built right by the sea. See our listing for Harlech Castle for more information.

On the northern side of the beach is the Morfa Harlech Nature Reserve, a haven for rare plant species and birdlife.

On the southern end lies the promontory of Shell Island where more than 200 different types of shell have been found. Leatherback turtles are occasionally seen offshore hunting the jellyfish which are abundant in the bay, so do be careful of those when swimming.
