Where is the lagoon?

Fourmile Bridge, near Valley on Anglesey

Fourmile Bridge, near Valley on Anglesey

Hi I Loooove your site.


We're coming next week! But WHERE IS THE LAGOON?

My friend told me she found by accident a beach with a stunning lagoon (like a tropical paradise) but I can't locate it on any site.

Thanx, Goldie Weltscher




Dear Goldie

Sorry for the late response. Family health issues taking up a lot of my time at the moment.

I live in the centre of Anglesey and probably don't know a lot of the very local names for particluar spots on the Island.

There is only one clear possibility for The Lagoon in my knowledge bank and that is the Inland Sea at Fourmile Bridge near Valley on Holy Island.

It qualifies as a tidal lagoon and when the tide is in (as in the images I've posted above) it is a lovely spot indeed.

The spot above is also the beginning of my little walk to Ynys Leurad.

Rhoscolyn Beach is around the corner and Trearddur Bay a few miles north.

There is also a very, very small cove between Ty'n Towyn Beach and Broad Beach (Traeth Lydan) in Rhosneigr.

You'll find it below and to the south of the three big beach houses. When the tide's in and the old currant bun's (sun) at it's best, then the water here is tropical warm.

There you go. If you missed them this time then you'll know when you return to Anglesey.

Best wishes

Wil

Goldie's mysterious lagoon
by: Bryan

Could it be that reference is being made to the lagoon at Cemlyn, the abode of Pink Flamingos some years ago?

Although not strictly a lagoon, Dulas Estuary might also qualify.

Hi there, Bryan,

You're right. It could well be. I was thinking along the lines of a place to sit down to laze or dip one's toes.

Cemlyn Bay really is a lovely location and the Cemlyn Tern Colony at that particular man-made lagoon really is fascinating.

Cemlyn Bay



In good weather Cemlyn Bay is really beautiful and I would also call it tropical. Been there so I agree with you.

Mind you, it is also a really passionate Celtic place in stormy weather.

I'm not sure that Dulas Estuary on Anglesey's north east coast would qualify, despite being a wonderful place to explore when the tide has gone out.

However - and a nice however at that - I would like to direct visitors to my Dulas Evening Amble page.

A walk down to Dulas Estuary as the Sun is setting is heart satisfyingly wonderful. Just sit to listen and watch the birds settle down for the evening.

It is a memory that warms me - even now as I sit here typing.

Thanks for your advice Bryan and I hope that Goldie will be able to discover these two other of Anglesey's Gems.

Wil
