Nice beach with safe swimming when calm. A nice stretch of the Welsh Coastal Path. Just don’t venture into the dunes around the nudist area!

We enjoyed the beach beautiful views of the Lleyn and the Rhinogs behind. Too cold for the Nudists and believe me there is nothing to see there anyway. Elle, Claudia and Naomi take their holidays elsewhere.....here you would only get to see Steptoe and Son!

Loved this beach. Wide sandy beaches backed by dunes. A lovely board walk leads to the beach. Plenty of parking spaces and easy to get to through the village.

Had a wonderful few days in the area and spend two days on the naturist part of the beach. The only thing that spoiled it was when we ventured into the dunes with my kids, I saw three males having sex in them, fortunately my kids did not see it - what a shame that folk use this amazing beach for this.
It is a pity that this section of the beach is a walk from the car park and there are so many pebbles to get over before the sand of the beach, strong footwear is needed for those pebbles.

If you are female and wish to try sunbathing in a nude for the first time please do not choose this beach. It will ruin your first time experience and will put you off for the rest of your life. It is a beautiful sandy beach, but as soon as you settle, you will be surrounded by 5-6 single old men who will start wanking looking straight at you. You will first see them walking along the beach shamelessly playing with their junk and looking for their prey. As soon as they see you they come straight close to you and start wanking, regardless if you are alone, a couple or a family. If you are a seasoned naturist or maybe an exhibitionist then you may not see it as a problem. But if you want this to be your first time, please do not do it at that location. Sunbathing naked (in a specially designated public areas) is a great liberating feeling. Do not get it ruined by a few sad little men with their little manhoods. Travel to France or Spain instead, or stay in a secured naturist only resorts.

We visited the naturist part of the beach. This part of the beach is a bit of a walk but we'll worth it to enjoy a beautiful day of sun, sea and sand without the hindrance of swimwear. It truly is one of life's simplest, natural and innocent joys. The beach was not to busy, everyone was friendly and as a family group we felt perfectly safe. Its also a very peaceful part of the beach. The veiws of surrounding mountains also adds to its beauty. Its the perfect place to shed off the stressless of everyday life, be free and recharge.

On a practical note Its a bit of a walk back to the public toilets so make sure you go prior. Also we love to swim in the sea but there are a lot of jelly fish. They normally float on the surface so watch out for them. But it didn't put us off swimming and the chances of of getting stung are fairly slim. Obviously also watch where you tread because some wash up on the beach.

Pebble invasion!!!….the pebbles that keep increasing, I assume in an attempt to protect the dune system are now stretching from Barmouth Bay holiday park all the way past Benar Beach Boardwalk and almost up to the nudist beach….so to get on to the sand from Dyffryn Seaside Estate and Fford Benar boardwalks…you have a precarious scramble down a 20 ft slope of pebbles before you get to the sand…when the tide comes in there’s virtually no sand left to walk on.

This outstretched pebble mountain must be costing a fortune and now from many parts of the beach you cannot see the dunes! Coastal erosion has existed for all time, so why not let nature take its course? The sea was once at the foot of Harlech Castle…so we’re still a long way off that…

This work is spoiling what was once a fabulous beach…and if you have anyone with a buggy or wheelchair, or anyone elderly in your party, forget it…just not accessible…perhaps that is the aim, to keep people away.

In a recent week at Dyffryn we have only visited the beach once and I’m sure others have done the same. Able bodied youngsters probably have no difficulty - I assume they’re the ones leaving tons of litter everywhere too.

We have recently stumbled across this beautiful beach when driving from Harlech .. and it’s become a firm favourite to visit with the dog .. gorgeous clean flat sand, sunsets, sand dunes and mountain views cannot be topped in my opinion

This is an extensive, sandy beach with plenty of room to enjoy relaxing. I went with my wife,arriving fairly early. The beach remained quiet and pleasant.

We decided to walk the beach at Dyffryn in February as the weather was fine. We walked north from Benar Beach car park to the end by Shell Island. This was a distance of approximately 2 1/2 miles. The tide was out and the beach was stunning. Sadly we came across the remains of a wale beached near the high water mark. A little further along the beach we found an adult dolphin also sharing the same fate. We had taken a plastic bag to collect rubbish of the beach and we didn’t have to look too hard to find plenty. It’s such a shame that we little some of our most spectacular beaches!, This beach is worth visiting any time of year but please bring a bag and leave with more than you arrived with.
