Porth Ysgaden & Porth Gwylan

Porth Ysgaden

A long track with a parking area at its end leads to Porth Ysgaden, which is a narrow sandy beach backed by the usual cliffs of boulder clay. Access to the shore is down a slipway. Only authorised vehicles are allowed to use this.

Porth Gwylan is approximately half a mile to the south, and is a very sheltered 'L' shaped bay consisting mostly of rocks with some sand at low tide. Access to this beach is down a wide path which leads to some concrete steps. Porth Gwylan translates as 'Seagull Port'.
