Foryd Bay is a large bay off the southern side of the Menai Straits. A popular place for birdwatchers as it is home to many rare birds and a pleasant place to while away the days.
It is also an excellent venue for windsurfing in relative safety. In lighter winds it is the ideal spot for beginners with shallow flat water, easy access and a quiet, relaxed feel. In stronger winds it provides good choppy blasting conditions for more competent sailors in most wind directions.
It is only sailable two hours either side of high tide and as long as you stay within the bay the currents are fairly gentle. The less experienced should however stay away from the mouth of the bay where the currents can become very confused. It is possible to sail from here across the Menai Straits to Anglesey, but beware of the currents.
The best place to launch from is the picnic site on the eastern edge of the bay where there is plenty of free parking and a nice area of grass to rig on. You park a few yards from the waters edge allowing non-participating partners to site in the van/car and watch. A really nice spot for a mellow days windsurfing.
