Bennar Beach is long and sandy, backed by a pebble bank and dunes. Parking is at a well landscaped P&D car park with toilets and a picnic area. Access to the beach from here is a 200 yard boardwalk over the dunes. Dog restrictions operate to the left (south) of the main access point for a distance of about 1000 yards to the Afon Ysgethin river from April 1st to September 30th.
There are two camping sites within walking distance of the beach and the nearest rail station (Dyffryn Ardudwy) is about 1 mile from the beach, with a pub (Cadwgan Inn) right next to it.
