Porth Padrig Beach (White Lady Bay)

Secluded sandy cove near the village of Llanbadrig on Anglesey’s north coast. The large crescent shaped bay is backed by cliffs but it is the large white quartzite sea stack mid-beach that identifies Porth Padrig.
The “White Lady” is named after after Ladi Wen, a ghost from Celtic mythology.

The beach is named after St Patrick as it is said the saint took shelter in a nearby cave after being shipwrecked. There is another man-made cave on the beach - an old mine adit that was dug into the cliffs to prospect for iron ore.
