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.

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.

Disgraceful beach hut

Beautiful beach, unchanged for 60+ years until that carbuncle of a shepherd’s hut placed on the headland. Apparently for shooters. There never has been shooting on that part of the estate because of footpaths.
Shepherd’s huts have never been part of Anglesey farming practice. I weep for this selfish act.
Rhag eich cywilydd.

Great little beach, which stays relatively quiet as you need to walk to get to it or get there by watercraft.
Someone has given it a 1 star review because of people coming with speedboats and jet skis… really!
I detest the noise pollution and the attitudes of (some of the type that use these PWC but it doesn’t stop Traeth yr Ora being a beautiful beach for any one of us to use.
Remember 90% won’t make the effort to get there… happy days!????
No longer a hidden gem
Arrived last Sunday and thought I had been magically transported to Ibiza. Counted 13 speed boats / jet skis, music blaring from different directions. Didn’t stay long. So dissapointed that this beautiful usually peaceful beach was spoilt by Marbella wannabees????
Blin - have to give 5 star but hate the hutAug 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.
Spoilt by a monstrosity of a shepards hut on a beautiful prior unspoilt area. Money does not seem to buy taste or sense.
