Red Wharf Bay & Pentraeth Beach

[Skip to Content]
Red Wharf Bay

Red Wharf Bay is a wide sandy bay with some shingle on Anglesey's east coast, with the Afon Nodwydd flowing along the western side. The main access point is at Red Wharf where there is a (free) car park near a small harbour, with a pub (The Ship Inn) and a cafe nearby. The south-eastern side of the bay is known as Pentraeth Beach and can be reached via a lane (Lon y Traeth) from the village of Pentraeth. The shore on this side is backed by low dunes and parking (free) is on the sand.

One of the hazards of this bay are the sandbanks, which can quickly become cut off from the rest of the beach on an incoming tide. For those unfamiliar with the beach, it is therefore advisable to keep close to the sides of the bay on an incoming tide.

Dogs are allowed at all times. The photos were taken at low tide.
