FOR BEACH BOYS (AND GIRLS) Benllech The perfect example of the classic British beach, Benllech is one of Anglesey’s family favourites. Generous expanses of inviting sand provide plenty of room for busy beach games, while the gently sloping shore is perfect for paddlers of all ages. There’s a shop and café too, so you’ll never be that far from a refreshing ice cream. Don’t forget your bucket and spade. Cemaes Bay It’s two for the price of one here.

It’s part of the Newborough Nature Reserve and offers some spectacular views across the mouth of the Menai Strait towards Snowdonia. Lligwy Part of sweeping Dulas Bay on the east of the island, blue is the predominant colour at beautiful Lligwy.
