Porth Iago Beach

Porth Iago beach is a beautiful small sandy beach hidden away on the Llyn Peninsula. The cove faces south-west and sits between the headlands of Graig Ddu and Dinas.

Whilst you are here or if the wind direction dictates it is worth a short walk to Porth Ferin beach which is north facing although not as sandy.

No facilities at this beach so bring everything with you, parking and access are through a farm with a fee for access and parking. Access from the car park is down a short steep sandy path.

You can camp in the car park above the beach, great opportunity for wild camping away from it all.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Porth Iago Beach.
