Introduction to the Anglesey Coast

The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path passes through some of the island’s most interesting and varied landscape.

The natural landscape value of the coast has earned it the designation of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  AONBs are internationally important landscape designations, comparable in natural beauty to Britain ‘s national parks. The AONB was designated to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the island, in particular its landscape, geology, wildlife and archaeology.




Anglesey Beach Guide

Anglesey ‘s coastline is spectacular and diverse. Whatever type of beach you prefer there is an ideal place for you along our long and varied coastline. Whether you are looking for sun drenched sand for a leisurely picnic, a refreshing swim or fun with the family.

The fact that most of the coastal area is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and that Anglesey holds awards for 26 of our beaches, holds testimony to the quality and beauty of this unique part of Wales.

Many of Anglesey ‘s beaches won awards in 2004, but an incredible 6 won the prestigious European Blue Flag awards. Namely, Benllech, Trearddur Bay, Porthdafarch, Llanddona, Silver Bay, and Llanddwyn.

The majority of the beaches mentioned below are sandy, and suitable for all ages. The odd beach is a little difficult to get to, but in most cases it is a case of driving right up to the beach car park. As with most places (sadly) these days, care must be taken anywhere where your car is parked unattended. Ensure valuables are locked securely out of sight.
