GLANNAU PENMON BIWMARES SSSI (part of the Menai Strait - Conwy Bay SAC)

The muddy and bouldery shores of the Menai Strait from Beaumaris to Penmon include tideswept sediments with relatively low exposure to waves and distinctive muddy-gravel communities. The site also includes important deposits from the last glaciation, at Lleiniog, displayed as clay and gravel deposits in the soft cliffs and stangely carved "stacks". Access is easily obtained from Beaumaris, Friar's Bay, Lleiniog, or Porth Penmon. Beware of holes created by itinerant bait-diggers and soft sand in the lower shore of Friar's Bay.
