Bodorgan Beaches

Bodorgan is a private estate on the southern coast of Anglesey, bounded to the south by the Afon Cefni estuary, and to the north by 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. These are the least visited beaches in Wales, and although it is a shame that they are not accessible, the Bodorgan estate has protected them from commercialisation and caravan parks, so they are preserved much as they were hundreds of years ago, save no doubt, for a few plastic bottles on the strandlines. The table lists the beaches from east (Malltraeth) to west (Aberffraw).
