ABOUT

The Bitches reef is a notorious reef of rocks running out into Ramsey Sound from the east side of the island. The Sound is home to some of the strongest tidal currents in the UK and on a flood tide the rocks act to dam the tide, resulting in huge white water rapids as the tide pours over the top of the reef.

It is an incredible sight to behold on a big spring tide and on a quiet evening the sound of the water roaring over the rocks can be heard from St David’s.
