Penrhos Beach

Penrhos Beach

Penrhos Beach or Towyn Bay (as shown on nautical charts) is just to the east of Holyhead. It is mostly sand backed by a grassed area, with the coastal path and the A5 to Holyhead just behind. To the eastern side, low cliffs provide sheltered coves. Swimming is generally safe, but waves are to be expected from ferry movements at Holyhead port. There are free car parks (6' 6" height restriction) at both ends and Holyhead rail station is just under a mile away. It's popular with locals for swimming, dog-walking or just sitting on the benches behind the beach.

Comment : Quiet beach, great for families. Safe swimming for children, the comments that the beach is affected by waves from the ferries is out of date as the fast ferries that caused any large waves stopped running in 2016. Only gentle waves which the kids enjoy these days. No toilets or ice cream/ food vans to be seen. You can have a break from the beach and walk around the attached Penrhos Nature Park. Peaceful and tranquil.
