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.
