Bodorgan Beaches

The private estate of Bodorgan (emphasis on middle syllable) lies on the southern coast of Anglesey between the Afon Cefni estuary and the dune system of Tywyn Aberffraw. The Anglesey Coastal path takes an inland diversion around it, and there is no public access. The shoreline consists of a series of small, intimate sandy coves flanked by low cliffs and backed by dunes. Most beaches face south-west, but Porth y Ddraenen-wen and Porth Cerig-cochion lie the east of the Pen-y-parc headland and face south. Porth y Cwch (above) is one of the largest. Being inaccessible to the general public, these coves have been protected against commercialisation and caravan parks, and remain now much as they have been for hundreds of years.

The table lists the beaches from east (Malltraeth) to west (Aberffraw).
