The tiny cove of Traeth Gwrddon is a real gem for explorers. Set at the foot of a steep, lush green valley this is a spot to get away from it all.

The valley here was carved millenia ago by the water from melting glaciers. There is still a stream running down to the cove and there are a couple of little waterfalls en route.

Once there were a handful of people living in the cove and making a livelihood fishing. The houses are gone but there are still steps cut into the rocks by the side of the stream.

At low tide there is a good little patch of golden sand in the cove. However, as the tide comes in the beach all but disappears.

Secluded beach

Quite difficult to get down to, but worth the effort - but you need to need fit and agile. Had the beach to ourselves all morning (except for a couple of perv middle aged kayakers). Not suitable for little children or dogs.
