These beaches are situated at the north-west tip of Anglesey. Porth Newydd (above) is a beach of small shingle and rocks with some small patches of sand. On the western side of the bay is a mine adit, which can be explored with the aid of a torch. It divides into two passages after a short distance, the longer of the two having a total length of about 20 yards. Access to the shore from the coast path is a rough but easy path, following a small stream. The beach looks out towards the island of West Mouse.
Porth yr Ebol is a little further west, and is a beach of mostly shingle. Access from the coast path again is a rough path following a small stream down to the shore. Parking is at a small area just off the road at Grid Ref: SH317926 (Lat : 53.4039°N, Lon : 4.5327°W), from where a narrow kissing gate opens to a footpath which follows a small stream to Hen Borth beach. These beaches can be reached by following the coast path westwards.
The photos were taken an hour before low tide. The names Porth Newydd and Porth yr Ebol translate as 'New Port' and 'Port of the Colt'.
