Traeth Gwrddon Beach

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.
