Ramsey Island

● Abermawr ● Porth Lleuog ●

Ramsey Island

The largest beach on Ramsey Island is Abermawr on the west coast. It consists of 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.

Cadair Rhwydog is the highest point on the island at 446 feet, and lies to the south. On the other side of this, and still on the west coast, is the small cove of Porth Lleuog (Grid Ref : SM699230). A steep path follows a gully down 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. Refreshments and toilets are available, but dogs are not allowed.
