Known locally as Sandy Beach, Porth Tywyn Mawr is a sandy bay, near the village of Llanfwrog. Sandy Beach is serviced by two caravan/camp sites; one has its own launching runway they both also launch from the beach. The only drawback is that jet skis also use the area, but have found them to show consideration and giveaway to sail and paddle powered boats

How to get there:

A55 towards Holyhead, turn right at Valley and down single-track lanes to the caravan/camp sites.

Facilities:

Both sites have site shops, one has a small bar and restaurant, the other has a heated swimming pool for inclement days

Hazards:

Jet skis and the bow wave from the Holyhead Dublin ferry

Ins and Outs:

See description

Overview:

A Sheltered mile long beach, only used by two caravan/camp sites so never gets crowded. Plenty of small coves and two seaweed-covered islands to explore below high tide.

Location:

Sandy Beach Bay
