Full of dogs, the beach has a big problem with dog feaces, absolutely disgusting. Dogs should be kept on leads, very annoying.

Benllech is so beautiful and the views are stunning out to sea. A long sandy beach and costal walks.

Called into Benllech beach whilst driving around the coastline of Anglesey. Unfortunately it was wet and windy whilst there and couldn’t really enjoy the large open sandy beach and shoreline. Looks a very nice beach and good for swimming when weathers better.

This is a beautiful flat, sandy beach there is short term parking along the sea front and two other car parks nearby for longer stays, shop cafe and ice cream stand provide all you need without over commercialising the place

Lots of parking on the seafront and a shop selling beach gear also nearby, along with an ice cream kiosk. This beach is fantastic! Lots of sand and lots of rocks, perfect for crabbing! The sand is a fantastic blend, perfect for sandcastles. Thoroughly recommend...More

Dogs are allowed on a section of the beach but it’s easier to go along the cost a few miles to Red Wharf Bay as we discovered
