Penbryn beach is is a gentle sloping rural beach, with almost a mile of soft sand, interrupted only by the river Hoffnant that flows across the beach from the wooded slope above. The beach itself is gently sloping and is sheltered from prevailing winds, making it popular with families.
There are rockpools at the southern end of the beach and even a smugglers cave on the northern shore. It is also a great location for stargazing.
The producers of the 'Die Another Day' movie thought it a romantic enough spot for James Bond and Jinx to enjoy at the end of the film.
Access to the beach is along a wooded lane from Llanborth, where there is parking and a cafe. There is a turning point only at the beach itself, for disabled and emergency access to the beach.
An alternative walking route takes you down through the woods, full of flowers in springtime.
Penbryn beach lies on the Wales and Ceredigion Coast Path, between Tresaith and Llangrannog.
