SN3557 : Cwmtydu Beach

near to Nanternis, Ceredigion/Sir Ceredigion, Great Britain

Cwmtydu Beach
Cwmtydu Beach
Cwmtydu Beach is a secluded little bay that was once renowned for smugglers and pirates with its many hidden little caves and coves.
Sion Cwilt was one such smuggler who used this bay.
On the sea front stands a limekiln that has been restored in recent years, a memory of time gone by.
During WW1 a U-boat commander came ashore to gather fresh supplies for his crew.
But now the only landings on the beach are that of Atlantic Grey Seals who come in shore to give birth to their pups during the autumn season.
