Additional Site Details


At Llandegai, near Bangor, turn off past Penrhyn Castle then take a minor road going left towards the shore. Park at the car park at the shore. For the Spinnies reserve (North Wales Wildlife Trust) walk back along the road to reach the gate on your right. Note that you can walk all along the shore from Llanfairfechan to Aber Ogwen, though parts may be impassable at high water on the highest tides, and you may cause disturbance to roosting waders.


From A55 east of Bangor take A5122 north into Llandegai. Take the road past Penrhyn Castle and then the minor road on the left towards the shore. The car park is at the end of this road at SH615723.
