Bull Bay BeachBull Bay, Anglesey

Bull Bay beach, Anglesey, North Wales

Bull Bay (Porth Llechog) is situated in the village of Amlwch on the northern coast of
Anglesey. There are lots of facilities in the village, and plenty of rock pools to investigate in the bay - so it’s a fabulous place to bring the family. There are spectacular views across the Irish Sea and, on a clear day, you might even catch a glimpse of the Isle of Man!


Bull Bay’s sweeping coastline, which is very rocky, contains lots of caves. It is great for kayakers and canoeists to explore. Some of the rocks in the area are over 570 million years old, which make them amongst the oldest in Wales. Bull Bay is a popular destination for both diving and boating, as well as fishing and other watersports.

The village of Amlwch and the immediate area are steeped in history. Not only are there pre-historic burial grounds, 17th-century copper mines, but there’s an old port close by too. The Anglesey coastal path also passes the bay, so it’s a super starting point for some coastal wanderings.

Always follow advice from relevant authorities, including HM Coastguard and any lifeguards present on the beach. Swimming flags must always be adhered to. Currents can be strong enough to drag even a strong swimmer, and rocks and unexpected shallow or deep water may not always be obvious. Swimming should only be done in calm conditions when supervised from land, ideally by a lifeguard on a flagged beach. Avoid swimming around boats, jet skis or surfers. Check the weather forecast and tide timetables in advance of a visit to a beach. Always pack water and appropriate clothing. Be aware of the risk of sunburn and wear a high-factor sun-cream. Children and pets should be supervised at all times, and dogs should be kept on a lead.
