A trip to the beach at Black Rock Sands might not be what you expect. For one thing, the sand isn’t black; when the sun catches it at a particular angle, it actually has more of a rich copper colour. All in all, it’s a great beach spot either during the summer or on a windswept winter’s day.

Black Rock

Your experience at Black Rock Sands starts with a little treat: you can actually drive your new Kodiaq down on to the beach; this two-mile stretch is one of only a few beaches in Britain where you are allowed to do so.

And you’ll find more than just paddling and sandcastle-building going on here. There’s a designated area for motor boats and water bikes; windsurfing and kite buggying are popular pursuits; or go explore the sand dunes, as their particular configuration made them a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The view from the beach is quite nice too: looking out to the sea, you’ll see the 13th-century Criccieth Castle in the distance.

If you want to reconnect with your outgoing, outdoorsy side – and if you’ve chosen the Kodiaq, you must have one – you’ve found the right place to come.

Recommended near-by locations…


57min away

Are you prepared to push your adventurousness further? Are you ready to rediscover the exhilarating thrill of the new, to feel again that combination of excitement and apprehension we experience less often the older we get?

Then head north from Black Rock Sands to Bethesda, a small town on the edge of Snowdonia.

Here, in a former slate quarry, you’ll find the longest zip wires in Europe – and the fastest in the world. On wires a mile long, you’ll reach speeds over 100mph and feel as though you’re flying.

The journey back may be the only time the Kodiaq seems comparatively sedate, though perhaps you’ll be relieved to reconnect with its comforts after your airborne exploits.


1h 3min away

This is a more bizarre route, not for the road itself but for some of the places you’ll come to along the way.

The first port of call is Portmeirion, built in the style of a village on the Italian Riviera and the setting of the enigmatic 60s TV series The Prisoner. Created by the architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis over a fifty-year period from the 1920s, it’s not the sort of place you’d expect to discover in this climate and landscape. But at ŠKODA we of course admire and applaud those who are driven by something different.

The unusual also awaits a few miles further on, near Blaenau Ffestiniog. Here, you can bounce on circus-style trampoline nets deep underground in a vast former mining cavern. We know of nothing like it.

When you finally arrive in Dolgarrog, you can take to the surfboard. Nothing out of the ordinary there – except that Dolgarrog is several miles from the coast. This is the location of an artificial surf lagoon, where perfect wave follows perfect wave follows perfect wave.

Bold, unconventional man-made constructions inspiring real, natural feelings of happiness. Something to consider on the drive home.
