spotless sands, awesome dunes, lovely sea, fabulous time with family and friends, parking nearby at a reasonable rate with toilets on the car park not far from the beach

This has to be one of, if not THE most beautiful beach in the UK. Miles of white sand, sand dunes and spectacular views of Snowdonia. Tranquil, exhilarating, unbelievably clean - and on our doorstep for 7 glorious days.

Went to Harlech beach for a day trip and loved it! Beautiful views with a castle nearby. Long beach with golden sand and quite clear water. Dogs aloud and the parking price is fair. Would definately reccommend to go there! :)

Harlech beach has to be the best beach in Wales. Whilst there are no facilities here just miles and miles of golden sand, if you have children or dogs it's well worth visiting.

One side of the beach has a dog ban between 1st April and 30th September. The other side of the beach is expansive.
