Named after the church which is visible from the sea here – Llanrhuddlad Church, to be precise, which commands an imposing presence from the top of the headland – this bay is home to a lovely example of a North Wales beach.

The beach itself is both sandy and pebbly, offering up some great opportunities for exploration and even a little bit of rock pooling. Facilities here are good, too, with public toilets, a café, a slipway and disabled facilities all nearby, but one of the main attractions would have to be the restaurant, which is famous for its lobster dishes.

There are great opportunities for fishing, and with the high quality of water (the beach has been recognised with both the Marine Conservation Society Recommendation and the coveted gold standard that is the Blue Flag Award) it is also the perfect place to enjoy a spot of swimming and diving in the sea.

Even better, the beach is dog friendly. This means that you can bring the dogs at any time of day, all throughout the year. Lovely!

Location

Church Bay, named adter the Llanruddlad Church, is located on the isle of Anglesey - close to Holyhead. Parking is available on the top of the path down to the beach.
