Welcome to North Wales

Things to do on site.

Llech campsite is a little piece of paradise, close to the Rhinog Mountains, Harlech and Porthmadog.

It is located right on the Dwyryd Estuary, just past Ynys village within the Snowdonia National Park and looking out directly towards the Italian inspired village of Portmeirion and Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa). You will immediately see why North Wales is known as the land of castles, mountains and Sea!

For lovers of the great outdoors this idyllic bolthole is an ideal base.

Whether you like water-sports, walking, hiking, exploring, stargazing or simply relaxing in front of stunning views, there is something for everyone…

Enjoy Watersports

Take advantage of the high tide on the estuary with a spot of fishing, or bring your own kayak or paddleboard for a day on the water. Information can be found about the tides on-site.

We are on the estuary so the water comes in twice a day, we have a notice board on site with all tide times.

Amazing Sunsets

The stunning sunsets and beautiful panoramic views around the site are a magical way to spend the evenings. With very little light-pollution in the area, it’s a stargazers dream when the stars come out.

Walk over to Ynys Giftan

Take a walk over to Ynys Giftan- A small unoccupied island that was gifted to Lord Harlech by Queen Ann.

Its a fabulous tidal walk across beautiful salt marsh and expansive tidal sands of the Dwyryd Estuary to reach this island that sits in the shadows of the mountains of Snowdonia. You can even paddle board or kayak out to the island on high tide. Please remember to check the tide times as we don’t want you getting stuck.
