  • About Us

    Whistling Sands Beach Information

    Whistling Sands is a crescent-shaped sandy beach backed by grassy cliffs located at Porth Oer on the Llyn Peninsula. The beach is looked after by the National Trust and is a good family beach also providing rock pools to explore.

    The beach gets it’s name from the sound made by the sand as you walk on it.

    The beach can be very busy and crowded when we have good summer weather, although you do have a smaller secluded cove to the North of the beach.

    Facilities include seasonal cafe and toilets, and a National Trust Car Park short walk to the beach.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for Whistling Sands Beach.
