Malltraeth Bay is ideal for those seeking a beautiful sandy beach without the crowds. Situated between Llanddwyn Island and the Cefni estuary, it is 1½ miles long and a good mile's walk from the nearest car park (at Newborough Forest). Not surprisingly there is always plenty of space here. The beach is backed by tall dunes with Newborough Forest behind. Green pillow lavas outcrop at the southern end near Llanddwyn Island. Roughly at the mid point of the beach are the remains of the Athena - a Greek ship wrecked in 1852.
'Malltraeth' translates as 'Desolate beach'. The photos were taken at high tide.
