Rhoscolyn - Borth Wen Beach (Borthwen)
© Eric Jones and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
Borthwen is a pretty, sandy crescent located on the southern shore of Holyhead island. Backed by sand dunes there are also a few little rocky islets along the length of the beach.
This is a great family beach with its shallow sloping sands and abundance of rockpools. There are also a few basic amenities such as toilets and showers.
The beach at Borthwen is reached by a very narrow lane and there is a small (free) car park by the beach.
