Anglesey is famous for its beaches, the choice on offer is extensive and some of them are truly stunning. What’s particularly fantastic about the beaches on Anglesey is they are so varied with stunning walks, sand dunes, surfing beaches, private coves all at your disposal.
Here we pick our favourites and give you advice and directions on how to get there.
Trearddur Bay – Main Bay
This is an obvious choice as it is directly opposite the Pant y Llyn Anglesey holiday house. It’s a multi-award winner having held the prestigious blue flag for numerous years. It’s also multi-faceted with beautiful sand when the tide is out and fantastic swimming too. There is a designated swimming area and when the wind picks up, it offers excellent ‘rough bathing’ or even surfing.
Boats tend to be launched from the North of the beach and can even be rented from the boatyard opposite the Trearddur Bay Hotel. There are also ice creams vans and the Waterfront Inn overlooking the beach in case you get parched or ravenous.
Our particular recommendations are an evening dip directly opposite the house as well taking any children ‘crabbing’ directly opposite.
Trearddur Bay – Port Diana
Simply turn left out of the house and walk down the road for approximately five minutes’ and you will come to Porth Diana. It’s actually the second (and larger) of the two beaches that will appear once the road bends to the left after the Seacroft Pub. It offers fantastic swimming and rock jumping and there is a diving shop selling ice cream and drinks.
In summer it can get quite busy, particularly in August during the sailing season.
Rhosneigr – Broad Beach
Rhosneigr – Town Beach
This is a very popular kite surfing spot due to the strong wind, shallow water and rolling waves.
This beach is simply huge and starts at the inland sea next to the Anglesey RAF base. It is quite confusing to get to but is usually very quiet once you get there.
