Llanbedrog Beach is one of the calmest in Wales, sheltered by the huge headland of Mynydd Tir-y-Cwmwd. The beach stretches about a mile towards Pwllheli from this headland to Carreg-y-Defaid.
The beach is a mixture of sand and shale at the top and there is increasing amounts of sand lower down. Further along the beach (towards Carreg-y-Defaid) there are increasing amounts of rocks when the tide is out - boaters beware!
The beach is now owned by the National Trust and there is a car park up a flight of steps from the road down to the beach. A cafe/bistro on top of the beach sells ice cream through the summer months and there are public toilets a little further up the road. Access to the beach is from the lower part of Llanbedrog village, past the church.
