Penbryn beach

Penbryn beach is one of Ceredigion's most popular beaches. Owned by the National Trust, Penbryn lies between Tresaith and Llangrannog, two other popular coves linked by the Wales Coast Path, and a network of quiet wooded lanes.

Penbryn Beach

Penbryn beach is a mile of soft sand, sheltered by wooded slopes, and is a great location for stargazing - no wonder it was chosen as a location for filming James Bond's romantic assignation in 'Die Another Day'!

There is a choice of routes down to the beach from the car park and cafe at Llanborth Farm: you can walk along the lane (turning point overlooking the beach) or take the path through the wood, which is full of flowers in spring.

Smugglers and Saints

Was this one of the routes smugglers used to transport their contraband - the valley's Welsh name - Cwm Lladron - provides the clue!

Other paths take you up the valley and to the 12th century St Michael's Church - a pretty whitewashed building in an interesting churchyard.

Also nearby is the Corbalengi Stone with its early Christian inscription ‘Corbalengi Iacit Ordovs’ (Here Lies Corbalengus of the Ordovices) which refers to the local pre-Roman tribe, whose name was given to the distinctive rock strata which is exposed along the coast.
