Sorry to dissapoint, but I have never known them to let you stay on the beach overnight. During the day they charge you 2.50 to park, extra charges apply if you park on the soft sand and get stuck and need a tow. I've been going for years and the beach patrol kick you off between 8pm and 8.30 pm and close the barrier. Having said that, it's a wonderful place to spend the day, and because of the weather a M/H is invaluable. There are several off road lay-bys in the area, so overnighting isn't a problem.

You're welcome Rob. It is a little bit early in the season. I was there on Wednesday and they were just setting up all the bins, etc. There are two entrances to the beach controlled by converted containers where you pays your money. For those with dogs.....there is a special section on the beach to cater for you..and for those a little bit more energetic, they do allow jet skis but only allow lauching from two dedicated parts of the beach and limit where they go to protect swimmers. Well worth a visit. Jezza

:)Just returned from a few days in the Porthmadog area.

It's 3 to park on the beach all day, the tide never covered all the beach. It seems that about 200yds of hard sand is always available to drive on.

According to the leaflet provided in the entrance fee the barriers come down at 7.30 - 8.00 pm but there are no barriers!

We went back on the beach one night about 9.30pm and stayed for a few hours, one or two boy racers were making donuts in the sand. All very tame stuff. A couple of campervans came on and were still there next morning they obviously stayed the night.

If you go to the second entrance to the sands from the direction of Porthmadog there is a campsite on the right hand side, it's basic, with good clean toilets, hot and cold water, secluded parking and 7 a night.

Try it.
