Set on Anglesey’s east coast, Benllech Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the island. It has fine golden sand and clear Blue Flag waters that are a delight for families to paddle and swim. At low tide the sand stretches for miles so there’s plenty of space for activities including swimming, building sandcastles, windsurfing, sailing and sea fishing. There are plenty of rock pools providing opportunities to see crabs, starfish and small fish up-close.
Benllech Beach has good facilities including disabled and pushchair access. Close to the village of Llangefni, it has roadside parking (fee) with easy access to the sand. There’s also a café, toilets, beach shop and first aid point. Dogs are banned from the main beach in the summer season although there are some areas that are dog-friendly all year round.
Backed by grassy cliffs, the beach has a promenade and the Isle of Anglesey Coast Path runs through Benllech village.

Not been on the beach recently but most days its not too busy and your able to walk round to the neighbouring bay when the tide is out. Love this beach
Dogs nearly outnumbered Children on the beach
We visited in August School holidays, despite signs for dog restrictions this beach was a dogs paradise, watched one owner put sand over their dogs poo instead of picking up. Won’t visit again, shame as it’s a beautiful little beach with a car park, toilets and some little places to buy ice cream.
Too many dogs
Although dogs are meant to be on lead and only on certain parts of the beach, didn’t appear to be enforced
