Criccieth sit on the Cardigan Bay shore of the Llŷn Peninsula, roughly halfway between Pwllheli to the north and Porthmadog to the south. A seaside resort with a fascinating history dating back to the bronze age.
Criccieth has two beaches either side of the Castle. The beaches are a mixture of sand and pebble with a rocky area at the far end of the eastern beach exposing rock pools at low tide.
There are no amusement arcades or vendors along these beaches so you can enjoy a relaxing time soaking up the sun with only the sounds of the sea washing over you. Criccieth Castle dominates the town standing high on its rocky perch and is a must visit. You can visit the Castle between 24th March and 4th November. Tickets: £5.50 Adults -- £3.30 Children -- Family £16.00
