Hell's Mouth or Porth Neigwl is a 3½ mile long surfing beach at the southern end of the Llyn peninsula. The beach is mostly medium or coarse sand, backed by banks of sand and boulder clay, which become higher towards the north-western end. The shore has a rich variety of pebbles from white quartz to black slates. Parking is at a small free car park reached from the village of Llanengan, with plenty of space for roadside parking nearby. The car park usually has a catering van and ice-cream van in summer. Access to the beach is a 200 yard walk along a sandy path. There are no toilets here and dogs are allowed at all times. The nearby village of Llanengan has a pub which serves food, with seafood being its speciality. Surf conditions are fairly consistent, but best around mid tide, and a reef at the north-western end usually produces the best surf. Windsurfing is also popular here, but it's only suitable for the more experienced.
The north-western end of the beach is quieter, with a small car parking area and some roadside parking just off the Rhiw road at Grid Ref : SH241285. Access to the beach at this end is a salebrous path down the subsiding boulder clay cliffs. A campsite at this end has idyllic views across the bay, but facilities are very basic.
The photos were taken 1½ - 2 hours after high tide.
