At ⅘ mile long and over 400 yards wide, Llyn Gwynant is one of North Wales' larger lakes. The A498 runs along the south side, and some space for parking is available. There is a small 'beach' area, here and on a hot day the temptation for a swim is irresistable. On the opposite side is a large rock, known as Cormorant Rock - about 360 yards away if you fancy a swim. At the eastern end of the lake is Llyn Gwnant campsite, which also has a good-size 'beach' area.
