Porth Llanlleiana Beach

Located between Porth Wen and Cemaes Bay, at what is the most northerly point in Wales, is the small pebble cove of Porth Llanlleiana. Set in a green grassy valley, the beach itself is fairly unremarkable, but this is a very pleasant spot.
Just behind the beach are the remains of Llanlleiana porcelain works. Pottery was produced here from china clay quarried at nearby Dinas Gynfor. This operated until the 1920s when it was damaged by fire.
The area of grass in front of the porcelain works provides a more comfortable spot to relax than the beach and even has a picnic bench for just this. An ideal stop off for anyone walking the coast path.
