Porth Llanllawen & Porthorion

Porth Llanllawen

These two beaches lie near the tip of the Llyn Peninsula. Porth Llanllawen (above) is a tiny cove of rocks and shingle, backed by a steep sided valley. A small stream runs across the shore and a short walk-through cave is on the north side. The easiest access is from the village of Llanllawen (Grid Ref: SH147258 / Lat : 52.7984°N, Lon : 4.7489°W) from where a footpath leads ½ mile across fields and down into the valley behind the beach.

Porthorion (Grid Ref : SH156288) lies to the north, and is a small cove of rocks and pebbles backed by grassy slopes. A public footpath leads from the road at nearby Capel Carmel.

The photos were taken 1 - 2 hours after low tide.
