Foel Jetty, Brynciencyn


Best at / for: low tide, winter sunset, summer sunrise.

Best avoided: flat light.

Parking: free parking right alongside.

Access: no walking required – suitable for disabled.

Notes: a quiet change from usual coastal locations.


This quiet little location offers something a little different to the usual coastal areas of Anglesey. Getting there is very easy and you can park waterside with very little walking necessary.

The attraction here is the Menai Strait fore-shore, the derelict jetty itself, of course, and the Snowdonia mountains in the background.

This stretch of waterway gets good side-light during winter sunsets and summer sunrises, but in most lights with the tide low enough to reveal the jetty there is much of interest to the landscape photographer.

The jetty is one of many along the Strait which served local fishing boats and as a landing point for ferries across to the mainland.

Whilst walking any distance is unnecessary here, if you do elect to follow the course of the Anglesey Coastal Path, the landscape photography compositions and the scenery make for an interesting trip out.
