Traeth Soden Beach (Cwm Silio)

The remote cove of Traeth Soden is set at the foot of a long wooded valley through which the little Afon Soden river cascades. As this provides the only access from the road to the beach it is generally quiet, in fact Traeth Soden is known locally as “the secret beach”.

The beach here is a mix of sand and shingle flanked by grassy headlands. The small stream cuts across the beach and sometimes forms a little lagoon above the high tide mark. As the tide goes out a rocky shoreline is revealed with a few rockpools.
