Create an itinerary including Harlech Beach
Overlooked by an impressive medieval castle, Harlech Beach features coarse golden sand backed by sand dunes. Lapped by gentle surf, the beach is the perfect place for taking long walks, windsurfing, and swimming--just beware of the strong currents near the Glaslyn estuary at the north end of the beach. Amenities include public restrooms, parking, and an ice-cream van in the summer. From the nearby attractions, you might consider visiting the World Heritage-listed Harlech Castle or the internationally renowned Royal St David's Golf Club.

  • Nice walk along the beach when the tide is out. Just need to clamber over the shingle to reach the beach. There are no toilets or cafes, just a vast expanse of sand.
  • One of the best beaches I've visited. Huge expanse of sand is ideal for taking a walk while enjoying stunning views of the surrounding mountains and castle. The beach itself was very clean and fairly quiet in April.
