Beaches

It would be impossible for us to list every beach or cove that’s worth a visit on Anglesey as there’s 125 Miles of beautiful coastline to explore.

Following feedback from our guests we have tried to summarise the beaches that we feel are worth a visit! If you think we’ve missed somewhere that is worth a mention please do drop us an email and we’ll add it to the list!

lligwy view

Ynys Dulas

Lligwy Bay

We’re rather spoilt to have Lligwy Bay right on our doorstep - we even have our own private footpath leading to it from the bottom of the park! Coast Magazine voted Lligwy as one of the ‘Ten best picnic spots by the sea’ and we certainly feel that this is a well deserved accolade.

It is a large, gently shelving sandy beach which makes it ideal for swimming or sunbathing. To either side of the beach there are large cliffs, which at low tide are perfect for exploring the many rock pools.

Looking out to sea you can see the Great Orme on the horizon, and on a very clear day you can see as far as the Rhyl Peninsula. To the left you can see ‘Ynys Dulas’ – a tiny uninhabited rocky island that lies approximately 1.5miles offshore. In 1924 Lady Dorina Neave built the only structure on the island which served to store food and provide shelter for shipwrecked seamen.

Traeth yr Ora2

Traeth Yr Ora (Secret Beach)

Secret beach is definitely one of Angleseys hidden gems. It is a stunning sandy beach perfect for swimming and generally get lost in your own thoughts! It generally remains very quiet, even in the height of the summer, as it is only accessible by foot. If you’re feeling energetic head left along the headland from Lligwy Bay and you will soon come across this glorious expanse of golden sand!

Moelfre

Moelfre

Moelfre is a quaint fishing village, well worth a brisk stroll to along the coastal footpath. In the summer months you can often catch a glimpse of passing porpoise and seals, as well as observing the local fishermen at work. Moelfre has a small, sheltered shingle beach as well being home to the Moelfre Seawatch Centre and Moelfre Lifeboat Station.

Moelfre Lifeboat Day is a large event held every year and features a lifeboat display, a display from the RAF Valley rescue helicopter, a plentiful array of food and craft stalls, as well as music and entertainment. This year it will be held on Saturday 10th August

Aberffraw

Aberffraw

Aberffraw is a large sandy bay, backed by grassy headlands and extensive sand dunes. It is a great beach for swimming or sunbathing, and has fantastic views of Snowdonia. This beautiful beach is definitely worth a visit but make sure you take a picnic, as it is literally just a beach! Aberffraw is a very important place in Wales as it is ‘the seat of the Princes of Wales’.

Benllech

Benllech

Benllech is a Blue Flag beach and is approximately 7 minutes drive from Tyddyn Isaf. It tends to be one of the islands busier beaches and offers entertainment clubs for children, donkey rides and an array of ice cream parlours. Benllech itself is a small town where you can also find our nearest Doctors, Pharmacy, Bank, Cash Machine, and supermarkets.

Beaumaris

Beaumaris is a pretty coastal town famous for its medieval castle, gaol and courthouse. There is a busy harbour which makes it a great place to visit if you are thinking of going on a boat trip. The pier is also a great place for children to go crab fishing.

Cable Bay

Cable Bay (Porth Trecastell)

This narrow bay picks up plenty of swell from the South West making it a fantastic bay for surfing and canoeing. The headlands on either side of the bay also offer great opportunities for exploring rock pools. A short walk away you will find Barclodiad Y Gawres, with the largest Neolithic tomb in Wales.

Cemlyn Bay

Cemlyn Bay

Cemlyn Bay is found on the North West coast of Anglesey and is steep shingle beach, ideal for skimming stones! It is also an excellent spot for twitchers – there is a protected Tern colony, and it is also famed for Black-Headed Gulls, Ringed Plover, Oystercatchers, and Shelduck. If you take a stroll on the coastal path to the left you will meet the lagoon where dozens of seals reside.

Llanddwyn

Llanddwyn Beach and Llanddwyn Island

A picturesque area full of little sandy coves, fantastic views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn peninsula, and full of welsh history. Llanddwyn Island is the home to St Dwynwen, the Welsh Patron Saint of Lovers. It is easily accessible along various footpaths at low tide, but be aware that Llanddwyn becomes an Island for six hours as high tide approaches!

Malltraeth

Malltraeth sands

Malltraeth sands sit at the foot of the Newborough Warren Nature Reserve. These areas are home to many rare breeds including red squirrels and many other sand-based species and invertebrates. This is a great area if like walking and exploring!

Church Bay

Porth Swtan / Church Bay

Church Bay is a beautiful rocky and sandy bay, that is a perfect place to capture an Anglesey sunset! Be aware however that there is a steep path down to the beach, so it is not suitable if you are unsteady on your feet! Whilst here take time to visit ‘Swtan’ – a fully restore 17th Century Welsh cottage with a thatched roof.
