Further afield Black Rock Sands is located approximately four miles west. In addition Harlech, Abersoch, Nefyn and Pwllheli beaches are only a short drive away.
The Snowdonia National Park begins a mere 5 miles from Bay View and is a magnificent playground for those who love walking, mountain climbing or just scenery watching.
The Park covers 823 square miles of diverse landscapes. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Beddgelert (11 miles).
Snowdonia is renowned for being a very special place for walkers with mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and coastal areas. The National Park is working on developing a network of walks and more will be added every year. In addition Snowdonia National Park has a vast amount of cycling and mountain biking trails suitable for all abilities. The Park also hosts other outdoor activities such as white water rafting and climbing.
Portmeirion is a popular tourist village located just outside of Porthmadog, approximately 8 miles from Bay View. It is Wales' 3rd largest visitor attraction attracting 250, 000 visitors in 2009.
Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, which is now is now acknowledged as a unique architectural work of art. The village is now owned by a charitable trust.
The village stands on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by 145 acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. The village has always been run as a hotel, which uses the majority of the buildings as hotel rooms, together with shops, a cafe, tea-room, and restaurant.
Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in the 1960s television show The Prisoner. The show became a cult classic, and fans continue to visit Portmeirion, which hosts annual Prisoner fan conventions.
The popular harbour town of Porthmadog is located 5 miles away. Porthmadog is rich in maritime history and in times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog. Both the Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog Railway can be boarded at Porthmadog.
Further afield are the attractive towns of Beddgelert, Harlech, Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch.
Bay View is ideally situated in the picturesque coastal Victorian resort of Criccieth.
Criccieth is located to the east of the popular Llyn Peninsular and adjacent west of the Snowdonia National Park.
This pretty unspoilt village has retained its Victorian charm with colourful terraced houses and hotels fronting onto two beaches which are divided by a stony outcrop which houses the impressive Criccieth castle.
Amenities in Criccieth include a wide variety of tasteful shops, tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and galleries.
Bay View is located on Marine Terrace, which is located on the town's quieter west beach. Marine Terrace is a very quiet road, generally being occupied by residential local traffic only.
