British Beaches

Sand, sea, sun, surf and scones

This website will be moving soon! We have a new domain name, and a new design. The current site will close later this year, but in the meantime you can check out the new version at BritishBeaches.uk.

Llanddwyn Beach Beach

Llanfaer Pwll, Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire

A long ribbon of sand backed by forest and five kilometres of high dunes with spectacular views across to the mountains of the Lleyn Peninsula. There's a path leading from the beach to the nature reserve at Llanddwyn Island and the nearby forest has a fantastic network of footpaths.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Llanddwyn Island) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
