Llanrhystud

Llanrhystud

Llanrhystud has a half mile long sandy beach at low tide, backed by a storm bank of shingle, behind which is agricultural land. A single track road just south of the petrol station in Llanrhystud leads to a small free parking area with parking possible on the shingle overlooking the shore. To the south the shore becomes rockier, backed by low cliffs of boulder clay with five historic lime kilns adjacent to the path. To the north is the Afon Wyre, beyond which the shore is completely rocky and backed by a large caravan park. The beach has views towards Snowdonia to the north and Bardsey Island to the north-west.

After a short inland diversion through the village, the coastal path continues south along the top of the shingle bank, which has been levelled as much as possible to provide a reasonable walking surface. Swimming is generally safe, and dogs are allowed at all times.

It's a good place to spend an evening, for either a late swim, a barbecue or just to sit and watch the sun go down. Also, being just a short distance from the A487 it's a good place to stop off for a break. Facilities at Llanrhystud village include a pub, cafe, supermarket, post office and camp site.
