Ynys Gifftan is an island near the south east shore of Traeth Bach, the Dwyryd estuary near Portmeirion in Gwynedd, north Wales. There is a public footpath to it across the estuary; it can be reached on foot at low tide and is 38 metres (125 ft) high.[1] The island has been uninhabited since the mid-1960s and the island's single cottage is in a state of disrepair.[2] It is one of 43 (unbridged) tidal islands which may be reached on foot from the mainland of Great Britain.[3]
