Porth Towyn is a small sandy bay on the northern coast of the Llyn Peninsula. There is very limited roadside parking on the lane behind the beach, but Towyn farm usually provides some parking with an honesty box for the fee. Access to the beach is a walk of about 200 yards down a good path. Alternatively, it may be easier to park (roadside) in the nearby village of Tudweiliog, from where a public footpath leads across fields about ¾ mile to the beach. A dog ban operates on most of this beach from April to September inclusive. The shore is mostly firm sand, backed by grassy banks. The sand here - when dry - makes a squeaky sound when walked on, similar to nearby (and better known) Whistling Sands. Facilities include a craft shop which also serves teas and ice-creams.
Porth Pengallt (Grid Ref : SH232377) is the next beach to the north east, which divides into three smaller coves after about mid-tide - two of which are connected by a short cave. Access is a scramble down the grassy slopes.
