A day out at the beach is what holidays are all about.
Close to Hafan y mor you will find geat beaches such as the ones below.
Barkby Beach - is a long sandy beach. Divided up by a series of rocky breakwaters the beach is backed by a wide promenade. This beach has sand dunes and grassy areas, some of which are set up as picnic areas. The north-westerly aspect of the beach makes it ideal for windsurfing but can leave it a little exposed when there is a breeze.
Black Rock Sands Beach - Morfa Bychan, known locally as Black Rock Sands. The beach stretches for about 2 miles and is backed by a dune system which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There are plenty of rockpools to explore here as well as some interesting caverns. A slipway provides vehicular access to the sands and most visitors park on the beach, making it a popular picnic destination and providing easy access for those with mobility problems. There are designated bathing and boat launching areas. Dogs are banned from the central section of the beach but are allowed on the eastern and western sections.
Llanbedrog Beach - popular with families and, in addition to sheltered bathing waters, younger visitors can get a National Trust “Family Fun Adventure Pack” upon entering the car park at the end of the beach. Here you will find a range of beach themed activities including leaf trails and wildlife games. Llanbedrog Beach also has a range of amenities that make it easy to use and you will find a cafe here as well as disabled access and toilets. One of the signature features of Llanbedrog are its colourful seaside beach huts dotted along the coastline.
Prestatyn Beach - has three beaches that join up to form a five mile stretch of sand, interspersed with rock groynes. Prestatyn Central Beach is located between the Ffrith and Barkby Beaches, only half a mile from the town centre. It is popular for watersports including surfing, sailing and windsurfing and has a large tidal range. Prestatyn is a wide, north-facing sandy beach interspersed with rock groynes. A 4-mile long promenade runs along the beach with ramped access from the car parks.
Pwllheli Beach - has not one but two beaches, and an attractive seafront promenade. Glan y Don Beach, which is south-facing, is one of the Llŷn Peninsula’s ‘best-kept secrets’, and can be found at the rear of the new marina’s workshops and compound. It’s around three miles long, covered in fine sand and pebbles and backed by sand dunes. South Beach is a shingle beach that stretches from Gimblet Rock along the promenade and around towards Llanbedrog.
Glan-y-Mor is located at the back of the marina, starting off a little muddy around the harbour, but soon becoming sandy and running for three miles all the way to the Penychain headland.
