Porth yr Ynys

Porth yr Ynys (above) is a beach of shingle near Moelfre on Anglesey's east coast. It looks out towards the island of Ynys Moelfre, about 100 yards offshore. The coastal path runs along the back of the beach.

A little further west is Porth Helaeth, which is almost entirely rocks and pebbles. Access is from the coastal path which drops down to beach level. On the top of the hill to the west is a memorial to the Royal Charter - a steam clipper which was wrecked on the rocks here in October 1859.

The names Porth yr Ynys and Porth Helaeth translate as 'Island Cove' and 'Wide Cove'.
