Ynys Eilun and Pont yr Eilun are two islets south-east of Ramsey Island, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

Geography[edit]

Ynys Eilun is located about a quarter of a mile eastward of Ynys Bery.[2] Visiting the island is not easy because of its difficult landing.[3] The waters surrounding the island are swept by a northeast current caused by the island itself.[4]
