Aberffraw Bay - Anglesey

Aberffraw Bay (pronounced "Aber-frown") is an unspoilt sandy beach that is just far enough from the nearest parking spot to make sure it never get busy.

Backed by extensive low sand dunes, the beach feels particularly expansive. These dunes are a Special Area of Conservation and lead all the way back to the village of Aberffraw where you will find shops, cafes etc

At the northern end of the beach the river Ffraw runs out to sea. This is apparently a good surf break on the right day, but that's not too often!
