Distinctive remains of a native Welsh castle, probably begun by Prince Llywelyn ab Iorwerth ('the Great') around 1221. Castell y Bere was a remote outpost on Llywelyn’s southern frontier, but it was vital to his security.
This beach’s dramatic English name is based not just on its semicircular shape resembling a wide, open mouth. Its hellish dimension comes from a savage, south-westerly aspect that offers precious little shelter to sailors.
