Porth Eilian & Porth y Corwgl

Porth Eilian

Porth Eilian is a small inlet of sand and shingle near the village of Llaneilian on Anglesey's north coast. Its sheltered location makes it a good choice for sunbathing and swimming. Sailing, scuba diving and kayaking are also popular.

The lane from the village ends in a turning circle, allowing passengers to be dropped off. Access to the shore is down a slipway. A (free) car park and toilets are a located a short walk back up the lane, and 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). There is no path down to the shore and this beach is not accessible on foot. However, the rocks just outside the cove are easy to reach, 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.
