Snorkelling on Anglesey
The beautiful Isle of Anglesey has some fantastic opportunities for snorkelling. Anglesey is awash with tiny little coves and inlets which are ideal, safe and excellent for snorkelling.
Many of the bays and inlets on Anglesey which are ideal for snorkelling are within easy reach of a nearby road and parking.
Porth Diana in Trearddur bay is another fantastic location for snorkelling, although very close to the road, parking is not good as there are double yellow lines pretty much the whole length of Ravenscroft road.
This stunning little cove is sheltered from the west and east making it ideal for snorkelling and even scuba diving. Being sheltered from the west means that the “viz” can be excellent here as the bottom is not stirred up so frequently.
Porth Trecastell (Cable Bay)
Cable Bay is a fantastic place for snorkelling as it has rocky sides on either side of the bay.
This stunning beach can be very busy during summer but has some great marine life to see! You can see Sea Anenmone’s, Wrasse, Shrimps and even Spider crab.
Cable bay is where the old telephone cables went across to Ireland and if you’re snorkelling down the left side you can still see the old telephone cables on top of the sand.
Parking can be a little challenges and now like most of the beaches is “pay and display” but are very reasonable. For more detailed information on this beach visit here
The are rock on the left side of Porth Nobla with a great variety of marine life, but no where near as sheltered as Cable bay on the other side.
There is decent sized “pay and display” car park only a short walk away just of the main road (A4080).
