Views from the Zig-Zag footpath towards the Llyn

Views of the Rhinog Mountains and the Llyn Peninsula make Y Maes Café an ideal place to stop and enjoy the stunning scenery and clean Welsh air. There is a large grassed National Trust field, Y Maes, to the front of the café, a great place for flying kites, kicking a ball or just sitting and enjoying the cultural atmosphere of rural Wales. The ‘pay & display’ car park (£1.10 for 4 hours), has ramp access down on to the beach, a public toilet block and gated access to the National Trust field. Awarded ‘Clean Beach Award’ for the past 7 years, the beach is great for children to explore, build sand castles, dig holes or to just sit and relax. Y Maes Café offers reasonably priced food and drink, gluten free options and locally sourced produce, whenever possible, along with a relaxed customer friendly service. We hire out wind-breaks, sun loungers, umbrellas and sell all the buckets and spades you could possibly want.
