Private Beach is located in the Penrhos Coastal Park to the east of Holyhead. At one time it was privately owned, hence the name. It's a beach of white sand backed by the woodland of the coastal park, with the headland of Gorsedd-y-Penrhyn to the east. Dogs are allowed at all times. The closest car parking is for the Penrhos Coastal Park (Grid Ref SH275806), which has toilets and a small tea-room. Access to the beach is then a mostly level walk of about ½ mile along good paths.
