Sea Kayaking

Sea Kayaking

The east coast of Anglesey is known, somewhat ominously, for the many sea wrecks that have occurred here. Kayakers should not be too alarmed though as this stretch of coastline has many escape options for a small craft. The main cause of concern for the paddler is the overfalls off Point Lynas – indeed the sea can get very rough here. There is big tide race with corresponding overfalls forming up to one kilometre offshore. It is normally possible to bypass the overfalls by staying close to the headland between the jetty at Pilot Cove and Porth Eilian.

The other key features are Ynys Dulas and Dulas Bay. Ynys Dulas offers a landfall and the opportunity to see some seals. A slim white tower in the centre of the island is both a landmark and potential shelter for seamen. At Traeth Dulas do take note of the narrow entrance of Ceg-y-Trai – the tide rips through here at up to 6 knots on springs.


Access is possible via the Moelfre harbour slipway while egress can be made at Porth Eilian where there is a small beach close to a road.
