The sweep of Cemlyn Bay in the remote north west corner of Anglesey is defined by the shingle bank of Esgair Gemlyn that separates the Irish Sea from the brackish lagoon that sits inland. Here hundreds of Sandwich, common and Arctic terns raise their young each year between May and July in one of nature’s spectacles. The house at the western end of the beach was built by Captain Vivian Hewitt, a flying ace and passionate ornithologist, to watch the terns, gulls and waders breeding in the lagoon that he’d created. There are several coast walks from here on the Anglesey Coast Path including to see the ancient gneiss of Carmel Head and to Trwyn Cemlyn, both with the chance of spotting bottlenose dolphins from the cliff-tops.
