The Beach Guide

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.
