Cemlyn is one of North Wales Wildlife Trust’s star reserves. It is valued for both its scenic qualities and its unique range of wildlife and is as popular with general visitors as it is with birdwatchers and naturalists. It includes a large lagoon, separated from the sea by a spectacular, naturally created shingle ridge.

During the summer months, Cemlyn is home to one of the most important tern colonies in Wales, including Sandwich Terns and Arctic Terns. Please note that when the birds are nesting on the shingle ridge access to it is restricted, but you can still walk along the beach itself.

Cemlyn also offers some great winter bird watching opportunities. It is also a great base to kayak from.

There are two car parks, one at either end of the main beach. See NWWT website entry for details or NWWT Cemlyn Leaflet.
