This small beach (otherwise known as Port Dinowic Sailing Club) is a stretch of shoreline along the Menai Straits. It features a boatyard at one end, and a sailing club, which organises regular sailing events ranging from training for juniors to racing at a high level.

From the beach there are views of boats in the Menai Straits and out towards nearby Anglesey.

There is a car park in Port Dinowic, as well as a chip shop and pub. More extensive facilities are to be found in nearby Bangor.
