White Beach (Traeth Gwyn / Traeth Fedw Fawr)

Set on the remote north eastern coast of Anglesey White beach really is a bit of a hidden beauty. The name (I’m guessing) comes from the white pebbles that make up the beach. These slope down steeply to the rocky shoreline which is exposed at low tide.

Access to the beach is via narrow lanes followed by a steep stairway down the cliffs, which judging by the hoof prints is frequented by the wild ponies which graze the Fedw Fawr headland.

Whilst swimming here is not advised due to the unpredictable currents the fishing can be good.
