Foryd Bay. This horseshoe bay has very strong rip tides but is also a good location to practice carve gybes if you are competent with water starts. It is only possible to sail two hours either side of high tide because the water in the bay disappears and sailing while the tide is going out isn’t really suitable, unless you are an experienced sailor.
Getting there: Head S on the A487 from Caernarfon. The bay is then signposted
Parking: Parking available in picnic area
Ideal Wind: S – SW
Accomodation: Hotels and B&B’s in Caernarfon
Water Quality: Not tested
