Porth Fechan (Hafan-y-Mor Beach)

Porth Fechan

Porth Fechan is a small, sheltered sandy cove on the eastern side of the Pen-ychain peninsula. It is backed by a grassed area, and there is easy access from the coastal path. A few clumps of bamboo grow wild alongside the path. A similar, but smaller cove can be found just to the south just east of the triangulation pillar and a small low-tide pebbly cove at the tip of the peninsula. Most of the beach's visitors come from the Hafan-y-Mor holiday park (formerly Butlin's), and consequently it's becoming known as Hafan-y-Mor beach. There is no parking nearby, but Penychain rail station is about 1⅓ miles away by footpath.

The photos were taken about mid-tide. The name 'Porth Fechan' translates as 'Small Cove'.
