Anglesey is chock full of beautiful beaches, and Bull Bay is certainly no exception. This little cove, which is also known as Porth Llechog (“sheltered bay”) to the locals, is overlooked by the town of Amlwch, meaning there are plenty of facilities close at hand, such as a café, pubs, public toilets and plenty of local shops.

Luckily for you, Bull Bay is one of the many beaches on the Isle of Anglesey that is entirely dog friendly, meaning pooches are allowed to run and play about on the sands at any time of year.

There are plenty of activities that you can take part in here, if that is more your style of doing things; these include snorkelling, diving and rock pooling, and the opportunities for fishing are plentiful, found in and around the bay.

It is a wonderfully calming place – look out to sea as the sun starts to go down and you will see exactly what we mean. If you are travelling to Bull Bay, make sure to take a bit of time out of your day to explore the village.
