Safety First – Our Company Protocols and FAQs regarding Covid-19

Paws For Thought

We all love our canine companions and the thought of them not being part of our holiday, especially one that’s only a car journey away from home, is unthinkable. You’ll be pleased to know that all of our self catering cottages welcome dogs and are perfectly placed for some of the best walks straight from your door.

Across the UK, many beaches operate dog bans between the months of April and September, however the last thing anyone wants on the first “beach day” of the holiday is to turn up ready to unpack only to find that your four-legged friend isn’t welcome!

Along with stunning coastal paths to explore, Anglesey also has some fantastic beaches where dogs are welcome throughout the year. Here is our list of 10 favourite year-round, dog friendly beaches that are within a 15 minute-drive of your cottage. With miles of golden sand, rockpools, caves and dunes to explore your dog will be in its element and so will you!

Lligwy Beach – A great sandy beach only minutes from your cottage, backed by dunes to dig and delve in. The handy café means you can enjoy lunch “on the sand.” They will provide your pooch with a bowl of water and will supply those essential bags if you run low!

White Beach – Our local secret beach and a great place to picnic, fish and explore. This beach is off the beaten track and a lovely place to visit.

Penmon Point Beach – This pretty, pebbly beach has a small café to enjoy. Sit while you dog sniffs and relax as the sounds of the waves and the lighthouse bell drift over you.

Red Wharf Bay / Pentraeth – It’s huge, golden and the perfect place for children and dogs to run and run. Low tide makes for even more sand and flat terrain. Take your bat and ball and play for hours.

Cemlyn – One of the more remote beaches and just a short drive from Dulas is Cemlyn Bay. It’s a great beach for the active amongst you. There are long walks from the beach, good fishing and kayaking off the shore. Take your binoculars and try to spot some of the local wildlife.

Moelfre – Moelfre is as pretty as a picture. The sheltered beach is pebbly and from here there’s a nice walk north to a second beach.

Church Bay – This small beach with a Blue Flag Seaside Award is surrounded by steep cliffs. It has some great evening waves and parking close by.

Traeth Bychan – A great mix of sand and pebbles along with rockpools and cliffs, there is plenty to explore along with a pretty picnic area. It’s the perfect day out for you and your favourite canine pal.

Fydlyn – This is a secluded shingle beach on the north west coast that can be tricky to find by car but it’s a great place to walk to along the Coastal Path. With rockpools and caves to discover, it’s worth the effort to get to and a great spot to aim for with a dog that needs a good run out!

Porth Eilian – This rock and shingle beach nestles between the rocky headland Point Lynas, and the inlet known as Porthyrychen, close to Llaneilian Village. Orca have been spotted swimming off the point beneath the lighthouse so keep your eyes peeled for the abundance of wildlife.

There are many wonderful beaches around the island and with 125 of coastline to explore, you’ll never tire of new spots to discover. We love seeing you enjoying your holidays with your favourite companions, four legged or otherwise! Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram @sageandseaanglesey so that we can see what you got up to!
