There really is nothing better than spending a lazy day at the beach!  And being an island surrounded by 125 miles of stunning coastline, beaches are something that Anglesey does extremely well.

Whether that great beach day means loading yourself up with ball games, buckets, spades and fishing nets, or simply involves packing a tasty picnic and enjoying the surrounding beauty, our award winning beaches make the perfect backdrop. From long sandy stretches like Red Wharf Bay where it’s sea, sand and sky for as far as the eye can see, to more intimate rugged bays such as Porth Dafarch or Porth Swtan / Church Bay, where cliff paths and rock pools are just waiting to be explored.

And with our Blue Flag beaches offering so much to do, you could challenge yourself to a sandcastle competition at Benllech, don your wetsuit and hit the waves for some windsurfing at Rhosneigr or Trearddur Bay, or discover the legends of Santes Dwynwen and gaze upon the breath-taking views of Snowdonia while you paddle at Llanddwyn Island.

Please see our list of blue flag beaches or browse through our beach guide.
