Porth Nobla BeachLlanfaelog, Anglesey

Porth Nobla beach, Llanfaelog, Anglesey, North Wales

Porth Nobla is a peaceful beach in a rural location close to the village of Rhosneigr. It is bordered by cliffs and headland, which is where you’ll find the 5000-year-old ancient burial chamber of Barclodiad y Gawres. 

It is a wonderful place for picnics, sunbathing, building sandcastles, and having some old-fashioned seaside fun! Porth Nobla forms a pretty little crescent of sand and shingle, and there are rock pools at low tide, and lots of offshore rocks too, so it’s a super place for kids to explore.


Porth Nobla forms the far end of Rhosneigr’s Broad Beach. It is close enough to stroll over for an ice-cream, but far enough away from the hubbub if you’re after some peaceful downtime! It has been voted Anglesey’s favourite beach in ‘The Beach Guide’ and won a ‘Keep Wales Tidy, Rural Beach Award’ too.
