The Beaches near Penmynydd Holidays



The winner of the Green Coast seaside award, Rhosneigr sits on Anglesey’s Western shore. With sandy beaches (two of them), Traeth Crigyll and Traeth Llydan, it is a popular hot spot for all watersports (especially surfing).

Activities include: swimming, surfing, wind surfing, kite surfing, wakeboarding, shore and boat fishing, water skiing, golf, tennis and underwater diving.

Rhosneigr is also superb for long walks on the beach, with rocky outcrops and magnificent sand dunes. Also nearby is Llyn Maelog which has an all access boardwalk for those wanting to watch Anglesey's wildlife.

Llyn Maelog is a lake of around 65 acres in total with depths of up to seven feet.

It is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There is a good stock of fish in the lake which includes perch, bream, roach and pike.

There is also a large variety of birdlife that inhabits the reedbeds.

Including grey heron, snipe, reed warblers, coots, mallard, shelducks etc...

Black headed gulls nest on the small island.

The lake is circled by public footpath which is popular with walkers and is great for relaxing walk as it's mostly flat.

In 2011 it became the first lake in Wales to be classified as a village green.

Trearddur Bay

Trearddur Bay has stunning large, sandy beach with 2 areas separated by a small rocky island sloping to the sea. It has lots of Rockpools and a slipway for powered craft etc... This beach has a protected bathing area marked by buoys. Cafes, toilet facilities (including disabled), car parks and beach warden service (in high season).

Boat launching is free if you can get up early enough (or don't mind waiting) as the warden is usually absent until 8.30am and leaves around 5.30pm.

Launching conditions can be found on the notice board near the slipway or by contacting Anglesey Council.

There are two general shops in the centre of the village, along with a garage, two golf courses, one 18-hole (Holyhead Golf Club), and one small 9-hole, and two hotels including a large hotel, Trearddur Bay Hotel, which overlooks the beach. There is also a number of self-catering holiday cottages, many with views of the sea and easy access to the beaches.

Just off the two beaches — Porth Diana and the main beach — there are some shallow scuba diving areas, and the main beach is one of Anglesey's tourist hot spots during the summer.

There is excellent sea fishing in the area. With Boat trips and fishing trips are available from local charters. Horse riding is also available, as is kayaking and sailing.

The seas around Holy Island have been providing some of the best kayaking in the world for many years and each year the best just keeps getting better.
