Porthclais Beach

Porthclais beach is really more a harbour than a beach. You have sand at low water but not what you would call a spectacular beach.  To gain access to sandy part you need to walk down the harbour which has a stream running through it.

Good access to cliff path walks from the National Trust car park a few yards up the road that has toilets and a refreshment kiosk during summer season.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Porthclais Beach.
