PostSubject: Great Orme Sea Caves   Sat 04 Apr 2009, 11:47 am

Location
SH 783 829

Directions
Go to the Pier but do not go onto it. Instead, walk past it and past the front of the Grand Hotel. There is a 2nd entrance to the pier here; go past that too, staying on the road. Around 50 feet past the 2nd pier entrance are some steps leading down to the beach; take these down and then begin walking towards the underneath of the pier.

Access
No known permission required

Suggested Equipment
None

Length
Sea Cave #1 ~ 10 feet
Sea Cave #2 ~ 30 feet

Flood risk
Both caves flood at high tide

Cave Attributes
Small sea caves formed in dolomite.

Description
Sea Cave #1
Located before reaching the underside of the pier after coming down the promenade steps.

Formed by the erosion of dolomite, this cave is only accessible at low tide. The entrance immediately leads into a sea torn grotto with no features (but nice dolomite).

Sea Cave #2
Located underneath and just past the pier.

This cave is water formed from the rear with a trickle of water running through a crack at the back. Erosion by the sea at the front of the cave has widened the entrance. This cave is also shaped in dolomite and the walls are covered in sea anemone.

Although the entrance is quite large it tapers quickly and the crack at the rear allowing passing water is too tight to enter.

Unexplored Passages
None

Digs
None

Links
None known
