Lligwy is a beautiful sandy beach which will steal the heart of even the most hardened cynic.
At high tide a narrow strip of sand is left at the top of the beach but come low tide several hundred metres of flat sand stretch out to give a gloriously open space. Just the sort of place to stretch your legs and breathe in the fresh sea air.
Good surf is not that common here; fishing, swimming and sand castle building are more regular activities.
Further north beyond Porth y Mor is Traeth y Ora, another delightful beach which is well worth visiting, especially if you are in need of some peace and quiet. If the tide is low you can reach it by walking along the beach; otherwise just follow the Anglesey Coastal Footpath which traces the edge of the land above the beach.
Other interesting features nearby include the extraordinary Lligwy neolithic burial chamber and the Din Lligwy prehistoric settlement.
There is a beach café here and public toilets. There is also a small shop in the adjacent caravan park and snacks can be bought from the container in the northern car park. If you need more than that then the nearest place is Moelfre which has a shop, cafes, pubs and chip shop.
Dogs are allowed here.
Approach / parking:
There are two car parks located at either end of the beach.
