Porth Meudwy

Porth Meudwy

Porth Meudwy is a cove of sand, rocks and a few small caves backed by high cliffs, and is the departure point for boat trips to Bardsey Island. It's probably not the best choice for a day at the beach, but a good place for an evening's swim. A free NT car park with cycle stands and an information board is pleasantly situated in a grassy hollow about 700 yards away. From here a track descends the narrow valley to the beach. The name Porth Meudwy translates as 'Hermits Cove'.

The photos were taken 2 hours after low tide. The one below shows the view out to sea and the islands of Ynys Gwylan-fawr (left) and Ynys Gwylan-bach.
