WALES BEACH GUIDE

Porth Helygen & Porth yr Aber

[Skip to Content]
Porth Helygen

Porth Helygen is a small cove of rocks and shingle 400 yards south of Porthygwichiaid, and looks out towards the island of Ynys Dulas. The path down is a bit rough, but leaves the coastal path at its lowest point behind the beach.

A public footpath leads directly from the nearby lane, which is very narrow with no easy parking spaces.

The coastal path takes an inland diversion at Porth yr Aber, which is a completely rocky beach with no obvious path onto the shore.

The photos were taken at mid-tide.

The names Porth Helygen and Porth yr Aber translate as 'Willow Cove' and 'Estuary Cove'.
