The Lavan Sands are located in Conway Bay off North Wales. They are to be found at the eastern end of the Menai Strait stretching from the Bangor Flats past Abergwyngregyn to Llanfairfechan. The Lavan Sands, or in Welsh Traeth Lafan, are a large intertidal area of sand and mud-flats. The area is enhanced by freshwater streams that flow across the flats and it is an important site for wintering waterbirds, especially Oystercatchers. In conditions of severe winter weather, Traeth Lafan acts as a refuge area for Oystercatchers displaced from the nearby Dee Estuary. Our picture is taken from the lower slopes of Moel Wnion, 580m, above the village of Abergwyngregyn. Across the sands can be seen Puffin Island and the south eastern tip of Anglesey at Penmon Point.
