Llangrannog and Cilborth Beaches

For many Welsh people, the village of Llangrannog conjures up happy memories of school trips to the activity centre there that’s been run by the Urdd (Welsh Youth Organisation) since 1932. This Blue Flag and Seaside Award-winning beach is especially popular with families, as there’s plenty of facilities and places to eat nearby, plus lifeguards patrol the beach during the summer. Just north of Llangrannog beach is the secluded cove of Cilborth, accessed either from Llangrannog beach at low tide or via the cliff steps from the Coast Path. Between the two beaches is a large tooth-shaped rock known as Carreg Bica. Legend has it that it once belonged in the mouth of a local giant.
