Criccieth lies on the south coast of the Llyn Peninsula, where the edge of Snowdonia National Park meets the sea, with spectacular views over Cardigan Bay. The medieval castle, originally Welsh but later taken and reinforced by the Normans, dominates the town. The castle headland divides the seafront into two with a pebbly bay to the west and a sheltered mainly sandy bay to the east. This area of Wales is ideal for walking, from the gentle rolling hills of the Llyn Peninsula in the west to the soaring majesty of Snowdonia in the east with delightful gardens and castles at every turn. Criccieth railway station provides a great way to visit Porthmadog or Pwllheli on the Cambrian line as well as giving an easy route to explore the world famous Ffestiniog and the Welsh Highland Railway.


Criccieth boasts two Blue Flag beaches which are clean and safe for families. There is a range of watersports such as sailing and fishing and the area is also renowned for its spectacular sunsets. Due to its temperate climate, the town is awash with floral colour almost all year round.


Criccieth has a selection of family run shops and some good pubs and restaurants. There is plenty of parking and some pleasant walks around town.
