This is a huge clean beach. Great for dog walking although there are restrictions from March to September. Cracking little kiosk where you can get ice cream after your walk. Well recommended. If helpful please give me a thumbs up!

Very clean! Great to walk around the bay on the beach to The Ship pub and The Boathouse restaurant at Red Wharf Bay. Then there is always the restaurant at St David’s parc with great views if you can fit in another brew 😃

Clean, safe, parking, kiosk for drinks etc. What more could you want, weather??? Lol The views are lovely despite the overlooking caravan sites. I've been many times as the dog loves it there.

Benllech beach is a nice, small beach to visit. I would reccomend this beach for older children. As it should be cleaned more, Because I often see beer and alchohol bottles, plastic and other sorts of rubbish. Some parts of the beach do allow dogs...More

This is an excellent sandy beach with easy parking and easy access from the main road. It's fairly unspoilt, so not many facilities. Good promenade to walk along, as well as walks on the damp sandy beach.

Love this beach. Always friendly dog owners to chat to. I prefer it out of season as less tourists about and sometimes it seems you have the beach to yourself. Great place.

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

I'm afraid I can't help you with a recommendation as I haven't stayed at any of the campsites in the area but maybe the Visit Anglesey website might be of some help to you. They are also on Twitter. Or ask Keith at Anglesey... More
