Top 5 Beaches to visit in North Wales
1. Llanddwyn Beach, Newborough, Isle of Anglesey
Providing views of the Snowdonia mountain range and the Llŷn Peninsula, Llanddwyn Beach has to be our number 1 beach.
Llanddwyn Beach is located at the southwest tip of Anglesey and can be reached via Newborough Forest. Whilst it can be enjoyed all day long, our favourite times to go are sunrise & sunset as the views are among the best in North Wales.
It is an excellent spot for kite-surfing, thanks to exposure to the western Atlantic.
You can enjoy miles of walking along the golden beach & dunes before reaching Llanddwyn island, which is home to a lighthouse & a row of tiny terrace houses.
2. Benllech, Isle of Anglesey
Set on Anglesey’s east coast, Benllech beach is one of the most popular beaches on Anglesey.
Benllech beach offers plenty, whether you want to go for a long walk on the golden sand, have a quick swim in the gorgeous blue waters or enjoy ice cream on the promenade.
Facilities include toilets, disabled and pushchair access, shops, food, a slipway, promenade, and parking is available, but on hot summer days can get full.
