Porth Aels & Porth Terfyn

Porth Aels

Porth Aels (above) is a beach of coarse sand and rock-pools on the western side of the Braich-lwyd headland. Access to the shore is down a short path on the eastern side. It's quite sheltered and good for sun-bathing, but noise from the nearby motor-racing circuit occasionally spoils the peace.

Porth Terfyn (Grid Ref: SH343676) is on the opposite side of the headland, and is a small beach of mostly shingle, with a tiny sandy cove to one side. The name translates as 'Boundary Cove'. Access is a short scramble down the rocks on the east side.

The photos were taken at mid-tide.
