Visitors Guide


Criccieth must surely enjoy one of the most beautiful locations to be found anywhere. Situated on the coast at the edge of the Snowdonia National Park with all its attractions there is something to do for everybody. Castles, walks, mountains, beaches, scenery, trains, golf, water sports, fishing, plus excellent visitor attractions in abundance.



This part of Wales has an abundance of historic castles. Criccieth castle dominates the town standing high on its rocky perch and is a must visit. Many more castles surround us and you will find details of these by following the link above.




Criccieth itself has two beaches either side of the Castle. The beaches are  a mixture of sand and pebble with a rocky area at the far end of the eastern beach exposing rock pools at low tide. There are no amusement arcades or vendors along these beaches so you can enjoy a relaxing time soaking up the sun with only the sounds of the sea washing over you. To find out more about these beaches and others in the area please follow the link above.
