Cemlyn Bay is a stunningly special location on the north west coast of Anglesey. The bay consists of a steep shingle beach stretching over 600 metres round with rocky outcrops to the right. Cemlyn Bay has a little bit for everyone, sea fishing, bird watching or just taking in the beautiful scenery.
The bay is a favourite spot of many anglers but they don’t get on well the resident grey seals! Behind the shingle beach is a man made brackish Lagoon. Cemlyn Bay is home to hundreds of sea birds and has the only breeding Sandwich Terns in Wales. These both make up part of the Cemlyn Bay nature reserve.
The Cemlyn estate is owned by the National Trust and is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is also an area of special scientific interest and part of Angleseys heritage coast. I told you it was special!
The bay is definitely a place to visit if you particularly enjoy watching various bird species. Plenty of native species are here year round with some migratory ones stopping over.
Parking is plentiful on both sides of the bay and it is currently free. The carpark to the west (Bryn Aber) will put you closer to the birds, its a lot more of an interesting area to explore. The one to the east will leave you with a bit of a walk but its also better for anglers.
