PORTHMADOG AREA

Cheshire Life - - North Wales Special -

Black Rock Sands, in the vil­lage of Morfa By­chan, might not be your typ­i­cal post­card-per­fect beach but it’s a wide, wild and won­der­ful place to ex­plore. The large ex­panse of hard, flat sand al­lows ve­hi­cle ac­cess, mak­ing it pop­u­lar with kiters, wa­ter bik­ers and the pic­nic posse, es­pe­cially dur­ing the sum­mer months.

Hid­den Gem: In ad­di­tion to its colour­ful ar­chi­tec­ture and wild gar­dens, the Ital­ianate vil­lage of Port­meirion is also blessed with one of Bri­tain’s best pri­vate beaches.

White Sands Bay can be ac­cessed via the vil­lage, which of course means pay­ing an en­trance fee. As such, it’s qui­eter than most beaches in the area, leav­ing you free to find hid­den caves, gul­lies and in­ter­est­ing plants with­out much in­ter­fer­ence. Swim­ming is not ad­vis­able due to it cur­rents and tides.
