Get hands-on during a practical beach clean session at Morfa Bychan with Keep Wales Tidy that will explore what we can all do to reduce marine litter. Morfa Bychan, known locally as Black Rock Sands is on the Llyn Peninsular and is a 2 mile stretch of sandy beach with caves and rockpools. Its sand-dunes have been declared a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ with rare maritime plants and wildlife habitats. We will be spending time cleaning the litter that gets blown into the sand-dunes and on the beach and also learn about why these sand-dunes are so special and unique. This is a beautiful beach, great for paddling (if you can brave the cold!) making sandcastles and exploring rockpools, so if the sun shines, bring a picnic and make a day of it! Distance: 1-2 miles Time: approximately 2 hours What to bring: Packed lunch, waterproof and warm clothes, sun-screen and hat Walking ability: Easy - we will be walking along the beach and sand-dunes. Family Friendly: This is suitable for children but all under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs: Assistance Dogs only as most of the beach is designated a 'dog-free' zone. Amenities: Toilets available near the beach. Access: Please note this walk is Not Suitable for wheelchairs. Walk leaders: Keep Wales Tidy Start point and time: Morfa Bychan village - Park in the village of Morfa Bychan and walk across the golf course, or park in the car park at the end of Beach Road and keep left.
