White Beach (Traeth Fedw Fawr)

White Beach

From the small hamlet of Mariandyrys on the eastern tip of Anglesey, a narrow no-through road leads to a small parking area at the National Trust's Fedw Fawr property. The lane is signposted as being unsuitable for wide vehicles, and there's little space for turning at its end. There are extensive views over the Irish Sea, and towards the Great Orme to the east. From here, access to White Beach (also known as Traeth Fedw Fawr) is down a steep path with steps. A larger parking area can be found at Glan-yr-afon - about ¾ mile away.

The shore is mostly limestone pebbles with some small patches of sand and is bounded on the eastern side by a narrow headland. A short, easy scramble over this headland leads to a similar and even more secluded beach. There can be strong currents offshore, so swimming is not advisable. Dogs are allowed at all times.

The photos were taken an hour after low tide.
