Visit Criccieth East Beach
Award winning Criccieth East Beach, separated from Criccieth West, by the headland with the remains of the 13th century Criccieth Castle. The beach is mainly pebbles but at low tide a sandy expanse is exposed.
The water here is shallow with safe swimming conditions, and warm, due to the gulf stream passing close by. This is a great place for water sports including kayaking and paddleboarding.
Blue Flag awarded, it is an ideal spot, also for families, during the holidays, with plenty of places to eat and drink near by.
Dogs are not allowed on the beach immediately in front of the esplanade, however if you head east towards the pitch & putt course, dogs are allowed there.
On a fine day when the tide is out, you can stroll along the beach to Black Rock sands, and you might spot seals, porpoises and dolphins along the way.
