Porth Eilian & Porth y Corwgl

Porth Eilian

Porth Eilian is a sheltered sand and shingle cove on Anglesey's north coast, and is perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The road from the village ends in a turning circle, allowing passengers to be dropped off and there is a (free) car park and toilets a short walk back up the lane. The beach looks out towards Point Lynas with its lighthouse. Dogs are allowed at all times. The photos were taken at mid-tide.

A short walk eastwards along the coastal path will lead to Porth y Corwgl (one of three Anglesey beaches with this name), a very small cove which is inaccessable on foot (there is no path down, even though another source says otherwise). However, the rocks just outside the cove are easy to get to, and on a calm day it's an easy 50 yard swim to the beach. The photo of Porth y Corwgl was taken an hour after low tide.
