Cemlyn Bay is an inlet of the Irish sea located between Cemaes Bay and Carmel Head on the northwest coast of Anglesey, North Wales. The bay is defined by the headlands of Cemlyn Point and Cerig Brith and is approximately 2.5 km west of Wylfa Power Station. The shingle beach forms a barrier that protects a lagoon. The lagoon is fed by a number of small streams and the water level is regulated by a weir close to the property known as Bryn Aber. The site is part of the Anglesey Heritage Coast and the Isle of Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The lagoon and its immediate surrounds comprise Cemlyn Nature Reserve, and the Anglesey Coastal Path passes close by. The area is an important breeding ground for birds including Oystercatcher, Shelduck, Black-headed Gull and Ringed Plover. The site is an important wintering ground for wildfowl, including Wigeon, Shoveler and Teal. The site is also extremely popular with "birders" (birdwatchers), and "twitchers" and at times one could be forgiven for believing there are more birders in attendance than birds!
