Criccieth lies on the south coast of the Llyn Peninsula, where the edge of Snowdonia National Park meets the sea. The spectacular castle dominates the town and is well worth a visit. This area of Wales is ideal for walking enthusiasts, from the gentle rolling hills of the Llyn Peninsula in the west to the soaring majesty of Snowdonia in the east.
This region is also noted for its sunny aspect and beautiful beaches and also offers some outstanding golf courses, plus opportunities for sailing and fishing. But above all, it is an area for exploring, with unbeatable scenery and an abundance of attractions to suit all ages.
We use the George IV Hotel, a Leisureplex hotel.
Criccieth was designated a Fair Trade town in 2003 and offers an excellent range of family run shops. There are plenty of good restaurants to be found here, including several which are run by award-winning chefs.
Beaches and Gardens
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 all year round
