My 5 Favourite Welsh Beaches

I love Wales and if I’m honest Welsh beaches are as hot as I can stand. I don’t do heat. But these are my 5 favourite beaches. All in North Wales


The Welsh seaside town that I always holidayed at and I actually lived there for 3 years. Beautiful and sandy.

Just a few miles south from Tywyn. Again a lovely sandy beach.

The popular Welsh holiday town again has a lovely sandy beach.


Travelling further north you reach the quaint town of Cricceith with the castle looking down upon the beach. Such a stunning view from the castle of the sandy beach.

A new discovery on the island of Anglesey. This lovely village boasts not only a beautiful sandy beach but also a harbour.

As well as fabulous sandy beaches in Wales there are also plenty of other reasons to visit Wales with many things to see, do and eat.  Where is your favourite beach?

    I’ve only ever been to Tenby but these all look equally beautiful! Wales is a place I would love to explore 🙂 ox

    I wish I’d seen this list years ago. We decided to visit Wales because embarrassingly, I’d never been there. I googled it to death and finally settled on a beach I can’t remember the name of but no where near as nice as these. It was Autumn though. Thanks! For next time…

      Love the beaches in North Wales as the are mostly sandy where as the further south you go the more pebbles there are. But believe me some if these beach look a little grim at certain times of the year

    Wales is certainly filled with so much beauty. It is a place I would love to roam and explore with my daughter.

    That second beach looks like a hot country, I’d never have guessed it was in Wales! Jealous of your sandy beaches x

    I’ve only explored a few parts in the south, but the north looks stunning too!

    We go to Barky beach a lot as it’s close by but we do love Tenby too.

    I spent many a summer holiday at Criccieth, so I guess I’d have to put that as my favourite 🙂 Oh, Borth and Llangrannog too.

    I love Borth – some pebbles, some sand, great for body boarding with the kids as it stays shallow for ages, and Ynyslas.
