If you ever find yourself near the tiny village of Llanfaelog in western Anglesey, then you owe it to yourself to make the short journey to the nearby beach at Cable Bay. The beach is a classically sandy one, with its white-gold sands being sheltered in between headlands on either side.

The beach is more or less completely undeveloped – you are coming here purely for the serenity of an untouched beach, with no gimmicky attractions like donkey rides. It draws in a number of visitors each year, all of which are attracted by its natural beauty and unspoiled surroundings.

The sands slope gently towards the sea, and there are a few rock pools at either end of the beach, making it the perfect place for a little coastal exploration. It is an ideal beach for families – all you need is a couple of beach towels, a bucket and spade and maybe a picnic, and you’ll have a perfect day by the sea.

There is also something of interest on the northern headland: take a trip to the top and you will find Barclodiad y Gawres, a large, underground burial chamber that dates all the way back to the Stone Age!

Located on the Isle of Angelsey, Cable Bay is a very natural, underdeveloped beach. There is plenty of parking behind the beach, so don't worry about that!
