Silver Bay is a 600 yard wide sandy beach backed by dunes, a small coniferous plantation and a holiday park. A few rocky islets in the bay and a colourful variety of pebbles can be found on the shore. The beach looks aout across Cymyran Bay towards Rhosneigr. There is no public car park (or space to park) anywhere near, and all public access is via the coastal footpath. The best places to park would be Rhoscolyn or Borthwen. It's a popular beach for kayaking and occasionally surfing. Due to its proximity to Valley airfield, there can be frequent noise from aircraft.
Dogs are allowed at all times.
Porth yr Ych is a short distance to the west, and is a small cove of rocks and shingle, to which access is an easy climb down the rocks on either side.
