Traeth Cwmistir (above) is a beach of mostly shingle and a few large rocks on the Llŷn Peninsula's north coast. It is backed mostly by banks of boulder clay and access to the shore is down a short permissive path from the coastal path. 'Traeth' is welsh for 'beach' and is pronounced 'try-th'. The first syllable of 'Cwmistir' is pronounced 'koom' and the last as 'irr' (as in 'irrigate').
A short distance to the east is Porth Brynogolwyd (Grid Ref: SH258398), which is a cove of mostly shingle to which access is a scramble down a rough path and rocks. On the western side of the beach is a smaller cove with a waterfall and a small rock arch. According to local legend, a cave immediately right (facing inland) of the waterfall was a smugglers' tunnel which ran to a nearby farm, but like most such tales it's not true as the cave is only about 15 yards long.
