The award winning main beach at Benllech is a long stretch of rich golden sands backed by cliffs. Benllech is a prime sport for long seaside walks or across the cliff path to the neighbouring village of Moelfre.
A short walk round the headland at low tide takes you to Red Wharf Bay. Alternatively head north from Benllech to Traeth Bychan, a water sports centre with a slipway for launching boats.
Anglesey is surrounded by beaches! Everyone has their favourite beaches for –
