West End Beach (also known as Traeth yr Eifl) is situated to the west of the village of Trefor on the northern coast of the Llyn peninsula. The beach is overlooked by the former granite quarries on Yr Eifl mountains, and unsurprisingly the larger rocks on the foreshore are mostly granite. The lower part of the beach consists of a variety of smaller pebbles from the boulder clay which backs part of the beach, and some small areas of sand.
The village of Trefor has a small car park opposite the former chapel at Grid Ref: SH371466. From here, continue along the lane and pick up the coastal path (heading north) at the small bridge which carried a tramway to the quarries. Follow this path, bearing right onto the National Trust Nant Bach property and past West End cottages, where the path down to the shore can be seen.
The only facilities are a small store in the village. The photos were taken at mid-tide.
