Red Wharf Bay & Pentraeth Beach

[Skip to Content]
Red Wharf Bay

Red Wharf Bay is a wide bay to the east of the village of that name, on Anglesey's east coast. The shore is sand and some shingle, with the Afon Nodwydd flowing along the western side. The village has 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.

On such a wide, sandy bay with little gradient, the incoming tide will flood the bay quickly, so make sure you know the state of the tide if venturing any distance from the shore.

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