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, 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.
