Whistling Sands Beach is located at Porth Oer on the
Llyn Peninsula in the north west of Wales. The white sands are known as
Whistling Sands (because of the squeaking sound made by the sand as you
walk on it). The beach is in the care of the National Trust. The Wales Coastal Path, including the Llyn Coastal Path, passes through the beach. There is an excellent cafe for
refreshments, including hot meals, and I can personally recommend the
Cornish Pasties. Besides the clear blue waters of Whistling Sands beach
children will love the opportunities for rock pooling.
The beach can be rather crowded at the height of the
season but there is a secluded cove at the north end of the beach - for
those fit enough to make the scramble down. Car Parking, for a fee,
above the beach.
Watersports enthusiasts - canoeists and kayakers - will also need a good
level of physical fitness as it is quite a steep slope to cart the
boats back up from the beach to the National Trust Car Park.
