We travelled to Porth Oer to see the Whistling Sands Beach which we learnt about from watching a TV programme. Althought the short walk from the National Trust Car Park is quite steep it is well worth to see the Whislting Beach with its rugged...More

I would really recommend this beach to anyone to go and visit. If you are a National trust member it's free to park but reasonably priced if you aren't. The views are stunning and it has to be the best beach in Wales. The cafe...More

Would really recommend this NT site for everyone. Probably the most scenic view on the North Wales coast.

We visited here a few years ago in a cold blustery Boxing Day and returned today in glorious sunshine. Only a handful of us on the beach, felt as if we owned it! A hidden gem well worth travelling to.

Whistling sands they may be - but they didn't whistle for us! That being said, this is a glorious sandy beach backed by cliffs and a good centre for walking. It is also peaceful with no facilities other than the toilets in the car park...More

Stunning beach in lovely surroundings.Fantastic walks around. Be aware the walk from the beach is uphill so if anyone is slightly infirm to bear this in mind. The cafe is very good with delicious scones and coffee which we really enjoyed.

We didn't have a great deal of time, so paid a visit whilst passing. Typical of a National Trust managed site. £4 to park irrespective of how long, we would just spent an hour there, but refused to pay the parking, at least stagger the...More

There is no part of the beach where dogs are allowed I am afraid from May till September. You can take them down the road as far as the cafe and it's OK to sit outside the cafe with your dog but you can't take them on the... More
