Penllech Beach

Penllech beach (Traeth Penllech) is an unspoilt wide sandy beach and at high tide, it all but disappears whilst at low tide you have rock pools to explore.

The beach is unspoilt and not very busy in part due to the lack of facilities, and can be popular with surfers when conditions are right.

You have a choice of parking either set back from the middle of the beach and a short walk to the sea or to head for Porth Colman (which has a slipway) and walk along the coast back to the beach. You can click street view on our interactive map and explore the options.
