Porth Eilian Beach

The small bay of Porth Eilian is set on the fairly remote north-eastern tip of Anglesey. The name comes from the rocky headland to the east - Trwyn Eilian (Point Lynas). It is well worth walking out to the lighthouse for the views back to the bay and along the coast.
This is also a good spot for taking in the local wildlife such as choughs and ravens. If you are fortunate you may even spot dolphins or harbour porpoises off the headland.

Porth Eilian is relatively sheltered and has a slipway making it popular for a variety of water based activities including sailing, kayaking and diving. Other facilities include toilets and (free) parking a short walk from the beach.

Brilliant beach.  Much better out of season, no offence meant, I just like there when it’s quiet.

What did we get wrong?
