Disgrifiad o´r Safle The 4 mile stretch of coast faces southwest and the prevailing winds. The beach is backed by steep clay cliffs with a rocky headland at each end - namely Cilan Headland on the eastern side and the slopes of Rhiw mountain on other. The cliffs suffer badly from erosion, especially on the western side. The bay has entrapped many vessels causing shipwrecks.
