WALES BEACH GUIDE

Traeth yr Ora & Traeth Bach

Traeth yr Ora

Traeth yr Ora is undoubtedly one of Wales' best beaches. It consists of coarse sand and shingle, backed by bracken covered banks and looks out toward the island of Ynys Dulas with its tower (built as a refuge for shipwrecked sailors). The nearest parking is at Traeth Lligwy, about a mile away, so the beach is usually very quiet. Alternatively, there is space for roadside parking outside the Capel Elen Caravan Park, from where a public footpath leads over the hill towards the coastal path. Dogs are allowed at all times. The name 'Traeth yr Ora' translates as 'Golden Beach'.

On the headland to the north is the cove of Traeth Bach which is a small sandy beach flanked by rocks.
