Lligwy Beach - Anglesey

Wide, sandy beach located just around the corner from the village of Moelfre. The beach of Traeth Lligwy is backed by low sand dunes giving it a wild, open feel, which is exactly what it is.

At low tide a large expanse of firm sand is revealed providing all the space you could need for beach games of any description. Along with a range of facilities including toilets, car parks and a shop this is a great family beach that still manges to retain a natural feel.

Traeth Lligwy beach is also popular with water sports enthusiasts and can be good for windsurfing, kitesurfing and even surfing.

Lligwy Beach Reviews

Spacious sandy beach

Jun 28th 2019

Great beach backed by dunes, large carpark and seasonal cafe. Toilets in carpark. Good base for cliff top walks into Moelfre. Mixed landscape including sand dunes, steam estuary, reed beds, rocks and rock pools. In the summer the cafe has an events tent with bar and live music.
