Summary (optional)
start content

Grid Reference: SH 667745.

Glan y Môr Elias is within easy access of Llanfairfechan just a short walk westward along the promenade. It has expansive views and its saltmarsh is a magnet for roosting seabirds. Take a telescope if you can and, if you are lucky, you may also see some rarer divers and grebe species on the adjoining Traeth Lafan mudflats, which is an area of European importance. In addition,Traeth Lafan, Glan y Môr Elias and Morfa Madryn, together, form a Local Nature Reserve.

The North Wales Coastal Conservation Partnership publishes a leaflet describing the Coastal Reserves of North Wales between Caernarfon and Conwy, including Glan Y Môr Elias. For information on this and other Countryside publications, please click on the link below.
