Porthygwichiaid is a secluded shingle cove on Anglesey's east coast and is approximately 400 yards wide at low tide. A public footpath leads from the nearby lane (which is very narrow) to the coastal path. Access to the beach is at the northern end, where a little used public footpath leads to some steep zig-zag steps. The photo was taken at mid-tide.

The name 'Porthygwichiaid' translates as 'Periwinkle Cove'.
