Penbryn Beach

Penbryn beach is a mile long rural sandy beach owned by the National Trust that is backed by cliffs and a dune system.

The beach is situated in an unspoilt area of Cardigan Bay and on the Ceredigion Coast path.

No parking by the beach as the end of the track just has a turning circle. Parking is at the farm approximately 400m from the beach. You have two choices to walk to the beach either down the lane or along a path through a nice wooded area.

At the farm you have a cafe, shop and toilets.

Penbryn Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

Penbryn Beach has dog restrictions.
Penbryn beach, dog restrictions between 1st May and 30th September.
