Traeth y Fydlyn

Traeth y Fydlyn

The rocky islets of Ynys y Fydlyn shelter a small shingle beach which is known locally as Traeth y Fydlyn (pronounced 'Try-thur-vudlin'), or more simply as Fydlyn. It is set at the end of a secluded valley at the top north-west corner of Anglesey, with good views towards the Skerries (in the distance, above). The islets are accessible on all but the highest of tides, and have some small caves. Behind the shingle bank is a small lake (Llyn y Fydlyn) which often dries up in summer. A small parking area is located at Grid Ref: SH303914, from where a public footpath leads about ¾ mile across sheep-grazed grass to the beach. Most of the land here belongs to the National Trust.

The photos were taken at mid-tide.
