Anglesey Beaches – more information from North.Wales

North Wales news and information

With miles of coastline to explore, Anglesey is a superb place for nature lovers to visit. One of the best ways to discover some of the finest beaches Anglesey can offer is to follow the coastal path for the complete 124-mile trip around the island. Travel by car, or – for the more adventurous among you – hike the path with pre-planned stops at designated points.

Our picks of some of the best beaches on Anglesey

Different people have their own ideas about what makes a beach ideal. Here we choose our personal favourites – one of which might become yours, too.

Cemaes Bay

Location – about as far north as you can go without falling into the sea. Turn off the A5025 to reach it. It is worth a look as it is home to the popular Traeth Bach. The translation is small beach, so it gives you an idea of what to expect.

There are two beaches here along with a charming harbour, so it is a real three for the price of one delight. The second beach takes the name Traeth Mawr, and if you guessed that meant big beach, you were correct. Don’t miss the village of Cemaes either, as you can enjoy local services and perhaps a meal while you’re there too.

Porth Dafarch

Location – head for Holy Island via the A55 North Wales Expressway and then west on Lon Isallt to reach the coast road.

Could this be the most picturesque beach on Anglesey? It offers a pleasant stretch of sand hugged on either side by dramatic rocks and scenery. This is a popular spot for those who love scuba diving, so its dramatic appearance fits nicely with this popular sport. Throw in some rock pools and you can see why this is popular with families too. A real treat that feels like it should be undiscovered.

Trearddur Bay

Location – take Lon Isallt from the west or the B4545 from the south or east to reach this charming bay.

A quick look at a map reveals the large sweeping bay protected from the rigours of the sea. It’s no wonder this area has become so popular, with hotels, holiday cottages, restaurants, and bars servicing those who visit the area. It’s safe for families too, thanks to its protected bathing area. Stay within the buoys for safety. It also boasts a wide expanse of sand, providing families with the perfect spot to set up and enjoy the beach for the day.
