Croeso i Pwllheli – Welcome to Criccieth
Criccieth is known as "The Pearl of Wales on the Shires of Snowdonia". Criccieth is a town and community in the area of Gwynedd. This popular seaside resort has a rich and long history dating back to the pre-mediaeval times. The area around Criccieth holds chambered tombs one of which is, Cae Dyni. It consists of seven upright stones, and there are 13 cup marks, arranged in several groups. Historians believe that this was done by Celtic settlers. To learn more about this incredible history why not check out Cricceth Castle and heritage centres.
Criccieth beach is a what I’d like to call…views for days. One of the perks of going to this beach is that it splits into two beaches and both overlook Criccieth’s medieval castle. There are a range of shops and places to eat near the beach and in the summer months you’ll find ‘Cariad Gelato Piaggio’ ice cream truck which is famous for their homemade ice cream flavours!
Accessibility to the beach is limited with steep paths and rockery. Those with mobility issues may find this difficult. Please bear this in mind when visiting. There are nearby public toilets which include a disabled facility. Dog restrictions may apply throughout the year.
Criccieth’s town centre is bursting with quaint shops, gifts cafes and takeaways. You’ll find everything that you need here to fill your shopping needs. One of our favourite shops is called, ’The Naked Spinner’ and here you can find a range of bespoke gifts produce locally by local farms.
Parking can be found around the town centre and beaches. Parking prices range between £2.00 - £10.00 but this is subject to change. Although most parking meters take cash only there are options to pay through the, PayByPhone app around the town centre. This process is simple and easy. Public toilets can be found around the town centre with disabled access.
