Cribinau and the church in the sea
Cribinau is a small tidal island off the south west coast of the isle of Angleseymarker in Walesmarker between Porth China and Porth Cwyfan. The nearest village is Aberffrawmarker. The island, which can be reached on foot at low tide, is notable for the 13th century, St Cwyfan's church perched on its top. The church is known locally as eglwys bach y mor (the church in the sea) or simply as Cwyfan. The church remains in use and is popular for weddings.

17th century maps show the church standing on the mainland of Anglesey but erosion by the sea of the boulder clay cliffs has since separated the church onto the island. To prevent the church falling into the sea , a protective wall was built around the church.

In June 2008, an electric organ was donated to St. Cwyfan's.

Only three services are held at St Cwyfan's each year.

St. Cwyfan's is opened for weddings and for the christening of local children.
