Lleiniog Beach is also known as Penmon, and it can be found at the tip of the north eastern corner of the Isle of Anglesey, a little way north from the town of Beaumaris.

The beach is of the sandy and shingled variety, and makes a crescent of a curve along the Menai Strait, the stretch of water that separates Anglesey from the mainland. This itself provides some pretty impressive views, especially on a clear day, when you can look across to the dramatic peaks of Snowdonia.

Dogs are allowed on the beach all through the year, and you can enjoy some good fishing here, too. Once you have had your fill of sand, sea and (hopefully) sun, head over to Penmon Priory to take in the sights, before paying a visit to the restored Norman castle that is Aberlleiniog. From here, you can enjoy a fantastic view of Puffin Island, too.

Beaumaris is only a short drive away; here you will find a wide range of shops, restaurants and the like, though there is both a café and a pub closer to the beach. The water quality is excellent too – perfect for a swim!
