Dead easy there, park right on the beach and access to Criccieth, Harlech etc
Thanks for that I was going to ask about Black Rock Sands as I have been looking on Google Earth for potential easy launch sites, I have a 4mtr sib with a 25hp could I just turn up park on the beech then launch from the beech (once registered of course) or do you have to use a slip or dedicated launching area.
Do you know what the charges are for over 10hp engines, sorry for all the questions

Black rock is where I launch from,parking on the beach costs 4(whole season is 40/45),you will need to register with the council,I'm under 10 hp so it's free launching
For me,registration cost 25.
You will need to sign a declaration for insurance purposes.
The best thing I could suggest is go and see the harbour master in Porthmadog,really help full and tell him your intentions obviously with a bigger motor the fees will be somewhat more than I pay...
There are dedicated launching areas.....maritime are on patrol and are on the ball as to where and where not to launch.but again they too are good chaps.
There are 2 access points to the black rock beach with your car and boat,one on beach road,not that good for launching and another at the end of Morfa bychan,this is where you are recommended to launch from,but because the beach is so big it's pretty good in most places except the beach road end,sandbanks appear very quickly as the tide is going out.
For places to go once launched Catch the tide right you can go back down the estuary into port via borth-y-guest which is a nice ride,Harlech beach isn't to far away either,or you can head over to cricceth and beyond...
Oh and launching is a piece of cake..

Hi I live in towyn, llandudno is good to launch if you get as close to the paddeling pool as you can its a lot easier to retrive your boat, and less of a walk, but by far the best is pensarn beach go over the cobble bridge and turn right, I go an hour before high tide and fish for a coupple of hours I have had loads of mackrel this year but I also have a winch in the back of my van for pulling it up the beach, a word of warning the council bloke is a little hitler, we have had a coupple of barneys but I just ignor him and launch lol, there is also a old lauch ramp in llandulas but please go at low tide and study the rocks and ramp hope this helps
Paul
