If you like your beaches long, sandy, and peaceful, Llanddona on Anglesey is something of a hidden gem. The approach road to the beach is very steep, and can be busy at times with passing traffic, pedestrians, and walkers, so take a note of suitable passing points as you go. The beach is in between Penmon and Benllech on the Anglesey coastal path, and there are pleasant short walks from here to Holy Well and Penmon Priory.
There’s a shop and café, and the nearby town of Beaumaris is easily accessible. Basic toilet facilities are also available at this beach, which is popular with windsurfers and swimmers, as well as canoers and kayakers, although there is no lifeguard service. You’re also likely to encounter groups enjoying beach cricket and kite flying on this clean and quiet beach, with a forest at your back and stunning views of the coast.
Between 1st May and 30th September dogs are not allowed on the western part of the beach, which has held Blue Flag status in previous years.

This is a beautiful beach - huge expanse of sand right over to Red Wharf Bay. There is a car park with toilets and a kiosk. We came by foot along the coastal path from Red Wharf and decided to go back across the sand. Be warned!! The beach is so expansive that you couldn’t see that the sea had started to come in at Red Wharf and we were heading for the Ship Inn! Couldn’t get across the water at Red Wharf and had to head back across the sand until we could cross the water and get back onto the path. Best to stick to the path if planning to walk this.
My heavenly place

A beautiful place to visit with a very long, clean beach. However, the downside is the very steep and narrow road that you have to navigate to get to the beach. Not everyone is courteous enough to allow you through.
Last year, when we were making our way down on a Sunday morning, one of the locals decided that they were going to come up towing a horse box and they were not going to back down, even though afterwards, we discovered that it would have been easier for them to have reversed the short distance. It ended up with my husband burning the clutch out on the car and being stranded halfway down.
That said, there are some lovely locals who helped to get our car back to the top and drove me and the rest of the family back to the top.
