Porth Pant Gwyn & Porth Bieg

Porth Pant Gwyn

Porth Pant Gwyn (above) and Porth Bieg are essentially one long beach of sand and shingle on the Llyn Peninsula's northern coast. Both beaches have mostly seaweed-covered rocks below the mid-tide point. Access to Porth Bieg (Grid Ref: SH254380) is from the coastal path north of Porth Towyn, which drops down to near beach level as it crosses a small stream.

About 400 yards further north, the coastal path crosses the Afon Mynachdy, where waterfalls drop onto the shore - this end of the beach being known as Porth Pant Gwyn and is a little more sandy. It's possible to scramble down to the beach at this point, but something more resemblant of a path can be found further east. The closest parking is as for Porth Towyn, at Towyn Farm.

The photos were taken around mid-tide.
