Internationally recognised, the Blue Flag award is widely considered to be a gold standard for beaches and is much sought after. It’s such wonderful news to see that out of 44 beaches in Wales to be awarded, 18 of these are in North Wales.
North Wales is home to a diverse range of stunning beaches that will simply take your breath away. From wide sandy shores backed by the mountains of Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula to secret, picture-perfect coves.
And with hundreds of fabulous holiday cottages across Anglesey, the Llŷn Peninsula and Snowdonia, Menai Holiday Cottages offers a home from home to enjoy some of these wonderful Blue Flag beaches for yourself. Now, where to visit first…
Some of the criteria for a beach to be awarded Blue Flag recognition include:
On the island of Anglesey, Benllech, Church Bay (Porth Swtan), Llanddwyn, Llanddona, Trearddur Bay and Porth Dafarch beaches have all made the grade. RibRide has also been awarded the Blue Flag for Sustainable Boat Tour Operator.
Barmouth (Abermaw), Abersoch, Criccieth Traeth y Promenade, Dinas Dinlle, Morfa Bychan and Pwllheli are championing the beautiful Snowdonia and Llŷn coast.
Across Conwy, Llanfairfechan, Penmaenmawr, Llandudno West Shore and Rhos Colwyn Bay beaches are setting the pace. All wide sandy beaches, these are not to be missed. Prestatyn, a sandcastle maker’s paradise, has also received the award.
