The largest beach on the Ramsey Island is Abermawr on the west coast. It is mostly sand and shingle surrounded by cliffs of mudstones and tuffs. Although there is a steep path down to the shore, the beach is officially off-limits to the public. The beach looks out towards the islands of the Bishop and Clerks reef.
On the other side of Cadair Rhwydog is the small cove of Porth Lleuog. There is a steep path down a gully to the shore, but again it is off-limits to the public. Ramsey Island is owned by the RSPB and is open every day from 10.00 to 16.00 between 1st April and 31st October. Boats run from St Justinians with a crossing time of about 10 minutes.
