Beach info

Beach type

Mostly sandy. However, the northern end of the beach forms the southern arm of Red Wharf Bay and at very high tides it’s little more than shingle. Low tide exposes a large stretch of sand.

Once on Anglesey, take the A545 to Beaumaris, then the B5109 towards Benllech - which climbs steeply. Nestled at the southern end of Red Wharf Bay, Llanddona is signposted to the right and divided into an upper and lower village. The road by the side of the Owain Glyndwr pub leads down to the lower village and the beach.


Bear in mind that there are only basic amenities at the beach including parking, toilets and a beach café. More facilities (although very limited) are available in the nearby village, but for a better choice you’ll need to head further afield to Benllech and/or Beaumaris.

  • Toilets close to the beach, open 15 March - 30 September, with disabled facilities and drinking water.
  • There’s a beach shop/cafe with picnic tables. However, it’s not always open out of season.
  • Cycle stands. 


The road by the side of the Owain Glyndwr pub leads down to the lower village and the beach. Halfway down the road divides in two. If you take the left-hand lane, which has a slightly easier descent, it’ll lead you down to the large car park, just at the back of the beach. The right-hand lane leads to the lower part of the village, then along the beach road where, approx 400 yards to the north, it reaches the car park.


Relatively easy and suitable for pushchairs etc. From the car park, walk across the road, through the sand dunes and over the shingle. Within 15 yards you’ll be on the beach.

Dog restrictions

Restrictions apply between May and September when dogs are banned.

Fishing is popular here, as it is on White Beach, which is close by. Reportedly, fishing from the right-hand side of Llanddona is where you’ll find the best marks.
