This is a beautiful and amazing place to visit. The views and wind are breathtaking. Children can run freely with so much space to explore. My children loved playing in the pools left by the retreating tide. Great natural fun all round.

Such breathtaking beauty what ever the time of year, rain or shine. The visitor centre is full of good useful information and serves the best hot chocolate according to my 10 year old.

Fantastic beach & dunes. Nice flat firm sands for children to play ball games and a resident ice cream van - what more could you need?! Dog friendly.

Camping on the beach at Ynyslas is not allowed because of the tides and it is a nature reserve. Also, shame on you AndyHough for suggesting people don't pay for the car parking there, without the funds raised the nature... More
