Llanbedrog Beach is approximately 1 mile long and is well known for its row of brightly coloured beach huts, which are available for hire. The towering granite headland of Mynydd Tir-y-Cwmwd (436 feet high) is at its western end and shelters the beach from Atlantic swells, making swimming generally safe. At the eastern end is the smaller headland of Carreg-y-Defaid. The beach is backed by banks of boulder clay, with mostly coarse sand at the top of the beach and a good variety of small pebbles lower down, including plenty of pure white quartz pebbles. Dogs are allowed at all times.
From Llanbedrog church a narrow lane runs right down to the beach, where there is a cafe / ice-cream shop, (seasonal) toilets ♿ and cycle stands. There is no space to turn and vehicles are not allowed on the sand. Parking is at an attended National Trust car park. Llanbedrog village has a pub serving food (all day) and a village store.
