The beach at Moelfre is mostly rocks and small shingle, but has good facilities. A small P&D car park overlooks the beach with plenty of seating and a small snack bar and ice-cream shop to the side. A pub (The Kinmel Arms) is located on the opposite side of the road. Further (free) car parking with toilets can be found just a short walk away in the village. From here, a footpath follows a small stream as it tumbles down through the village, emerging onto the beach via a culvert. The beach looks out along the north Wales coast towards Great Orme Head.
Porth yr Aber beach is about 400 yards to the south, and is a bay of mostly shingle with easy access from the coastal path. Between the two beaches, a wave-cut platform about 100 yards long provides a good place for sunbathing.
