Between the small towns of Rhosneigr and Aberffraw, and near to the picturesque little village of Llanfaelog, the quiet beach of Porth Nobla is the perfect destination for a bit of solitude and relaxation. You can feel all your big city troubles just melting away as you sit on the golden sands here.

It’s not a large beach, but that just adds to the restful atmosphere of the place. The beach is about as rural as they come, backed by a grassy headland and bordered by cliffs to the south. Along the headland you will find something a little unusual – Barclodiad y Gawr is an underground burial chamber that supposedly dates back to the Stone Age.

Dogs are allowed on the whole of the beach all throughout the year, which makes it the perfect place to walk the dog while taking in your surroundings. Just offshore you can see a number of rocky little islets, making for some picturesque views.

There are toilets nearby, and visitors are spoiled for choice when it comes to activities: you can enjoy canoeing, diving, snorkelling, surfing and sailing, as well as a bit of sea fishing, and of course the requisite sun bathing and paddling. Lovely!
