Cilborth beach is a small sandy beach sitting under steep cliffs to the north of Llangrannog. The beach is sheltered and a distinctive large rock on the shore’s edge, Carreg Bica (Giant’s Tooth) marks the entrance to Llangrannog main beach to the South. There are a few smaller sandy coves beyond Cilborth, accessible when the tides allow.

Access to the beach is either via the cliff and a steep flight of steps, or from Llangrannog beach when the tide is low.

Surfing, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are popular activities. For walkers, the Ceredigion Coast path passes through Llangrannog with opportunities to spot seals and dolphins from the cliff paths. Wild flowers are abundant in spring and a wide range of sea-birds can be seen nesting on narrow cliff ledges.

Car parking is in a small carpark next to the beach or there is free parking in the upper part of the village. A shuttle bus operates between the upper car park and the beach during the summer.

Lifeguards are on patrol from June to September.

Dogs are allowed on the Cilborth side of the beach but are not allowed on the main section of Llangrannog beach area between Nant Hawen and Pen Rhip between the 1st May and 30th September inclusive.
