Porth Tyn Tywyn

Porth Tyn Tywyn is a south facing storm beach just east of the town of Rhosneigr. Quite a good size beach backed by sand dunes which are great to explore. It is generally soft sand to the rear of the beach with sections closer to the sea a mixture of sand and shingle.

To the east of the beach there are a few rocky outcrops that form rockpools at low tide, great for the kids to explore. The section of rock seperates Tyn Towyn beach from Porth Nobla, the rockpools are great and full of life. In summer they are literally teeming with prawns which can be caught with nets. In summer you could have a BBQ with the amount of prawns you will find here, or just chill out relax and enjoy a lazy day at the beach.

Tyn Towyn beach is pretty flat, which is great for playing ball games on. It never gets too busy either, with plenty of parking behind the dunes. Unfortunately its now pay and display but it doesn’t cost too much for the day. There are also toilets on the car park which are open during the holiday season, a bonus as most beaches don’t have these facilities as close by.

Close by is Porth Nobla, Cable Bay, Anglesey Circuit, Rhosneigr and Barclodiad y Gawres, a 5000 year old Neolithic burial chamber. Some of which are only a 5 minute walk away. Keen fishermen are also known to come here to catch Bass and Rays in the evenings and early mornings.

If you are looking for a nice beach and prefer being away from the hustle and bustle of busy beaches like Rhosneigr, Tyn Tywyn maybe the beach for you.

Check it out next time you are in the area or head straight there, you won’t be disappointed.

The beach can be found here A4080, Ty Croes LL63 5TD
