Criccieth is situated in Gwynedd, North Wales. Criccieth is a small town but its very compactness makes it an attractive resort for short breaks or indeed a family holiday.
The resort is located on the beautiful Llyn peninsula, the finger of land pointing toward Ireland in the north west corner of Wales. Being to the west of the Snowdonia National Park, travellers will probably arrive via the A497 and the first impression on entering the town is Criccieth Castle high on the hill. The castle overlooks Cardigan Bay and the rocky promontory separates Criccieth's second most popular attractions the East and West beaches.
All streets lead to the castle or at least seem to have a castle view. But if it's not the castle at the end of the street then its the sea ! There are fantastic sea views either west toward the Llyn peninsula, east toward Snowdonia and Porthmadog, or across Cardigan Bay toward Harlech and its very own medieval castle. ....
