The ruins of imposing Criccieth Castle are a superb example of a native castle. Built during the reign of Llywelyn the Great, one of the greatest Welsh statesmen of the Middle Age, these spectacular ruins, dramatically situated on the headland between two sandy beaches, tower over the blue waters of the bay. The castle looks down on the pretty seaside resort of Criccieth, and offers a vista from which to survey the North Cambrian Coast and the Llŷn Peninsula of North Wales.
Nefyn Beach is a stunning unspoilt beach on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula, Wales, perfect for traditional seaside holidays. With its long stretch of sand, small collection of picturesque white cottages and clean sea, it is ideal for families to spend a day with the children. The beach is also a magnet for people looking to do a spot of sea kayaking and canoeing, and occasionally the waves even become large enough for surfers to enjoy.
