Traeth yr Ora Beach

This lovely wide, sand and shingle beach is just far enough off the beaten track to make this one of Anglesey’s true hidden gems.

The beach itself is a long stretch of sand and shingle at high tide. As the tide drops out an expanse of flat sand is revealed.

Set between its more popular neighbour, Lligwy beach and the mouth of Afon Goch (Red river). A little way off the coast is Dulas Island with its pointed tower. It is said the tower was built by the lady of Llys Dulas Estate to offer shelter to any shipwrecked sailors who might wash up on the island.

With the nearest parking around a mile away at neighbouring Lligwy the beach is usually quiet throughout the year.

Blin - have to give 5 star but hate the hut
Aug 24th 2021

How can a hut like this be allowed in an area.of outstanding natural beauty. What is the point if having aonbs if monstrosities like this as are allowed by the council. Perhaps the owners were confused and thought they were in city Benllech ( or Benidorm) not city Dulas.

Found this beach whilst on a coastal walk from Lligwy and returned on the recent May Bank holiday Monday. Whilst Lligwy was heaving from tourists and locals set free from lockdown and rain, this beach was the haven for us and not too many others. If you don’t mind a walk and check the tide times you will be rewarded with a lovely, relatively peaceful sandy beach (family with jet ski and speed boat!) No parking, toilet or refreshment facilities nearest such facilities are at neighbouring Lligwy beach about 1 mile away.

Spoilt by a monstrosity of a shepards hut on a beautiful prior unspoilt area. Money does not seem to buy taste or sense.

What did we get wrong?
