A Quick Guide to North Wales's Beaches

The northern coast of Wales is dominated by a string of popular beach resorts, from Prestatyn and Rhyl in the east to Llandudno and Conwy towards the west. There are plenty of facilities and good transport links, but the beaches tend to be wide, sandy, often windswept and rather featureless. The only lifeguarded beaches are Rhyl and Prestatyn. Across the Menai Strait, Anglesey has a much better choice of beaches which are quieter and ideal for those wanting to escape the crowds. There are no lifeguards, but the main beaches have beach wardens in summer. Popular Beaches with good facilities include Trearddur Bay, Cemaes Bay, and Benllech. For quieter sandy beaches try Traeth Llydan, Porth Dafarch, Porth Tywyn Mawr, Church Bay, Traeth Lligwy or Llanddona.
For a day out with plenty to explore, Newborough Beach and adjoining Llanddwyn Island are good choices. Secluded sandy beaches can be found at Malltraeth Bay and Traeth yr Ora. For Secret Beaches try Porth Ruffydd, Porth y Nant or Traeth Bach / Portobello. Surf beaches can be found at Aberffraw, Porth Trecastell and Rhosneigr (Traeth Crigyll & Traeth Llydan). If you're travelling by train, Traeth Crigyll & Traeth Llydan are within walking distance of Rhosneigr station whilst Porth Dafarch is a mostly rural 30 - 40 minute walk from Holyhead.
