Newry Beach & Pwll y Gwman

Newry Beach

Newry Beach (above) is a narrow beach of mostly shingle, protected by the breakwaters of Holyhead Harbour and within about ¾ mile of Holyhead rail station. The appropriately named Beach Road runs behind the beach with plenty of bays for parking. Access to the shore is down slipways. Facilities include toilets ♿ and a cafe at the western end. Dogs are allowed at all times. The photos were taken an hour before low tide.

Porth y Gwman (Grid Ref : SH259823) is east of Holyhead harbour, and is a small beach of shingle, shells and patches of coarse sand, backed by low cliffs. Behind the beach are playing fields, and parking can easily be found in the nearby housing estate. The tiny islet of Ynys Peibio can be seen in the photo. Access from the playing fields is through a stone archway. Its name translates as 'Seaweed Pool'.
