Llangrannog and Cilborth Beaches
Cilborth beach is immediately north of Llangrannog and is accessed by steps down the cliff or from Llangrannog beach when the tide is low. This fantastic beach is sandy and secluded in a hidden cove. It can be easily identified by a dramatic tooth-shaped rock known as Carreg Bica. According to legend this was a tooth that troubled a local giant, which one day he ripped it out in anger, whereupon it happened to land in Llangrannog!
Around Carreg Bica there are great rockpools to explore, and find colourful seaweeds, shellfish such as limpets and mussels as well as starfish and crabs. The beach also has a series of caves, carved out of the contorted rock formations by the sea.
The Urdd is the Welsh youth movement and it is the biggest of its kind in Europe. Each year its summer camp near Llangrannog provides activities for some 20,000 youngsters and features a heritage centre about Llangrannog. The Urdd centre has a dry ski-slope and is open to visitors.
Surfing and rowing are popular activities enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
