Porth Swtan or Church Bay

Porth Swtan also known as Church Bay is situated on the north western side of Anglesey.

The path down to the beach at Church bay is quite a steep one from the small and quiet village. The beach which is a mixture of sand and pebbles is surrounded by tall cliffs on three sides making it a sheltered beach but getting some occasional swell from the Irish sea making it ideal for surfing and body boarding.

The beach at Church bay is a beautiful unspoilt one with a mixture of sand and pebbles, the sand is in the lower part of the beach which only slopes very gradually towards the sea making it ideal for swimming.

Church Bay beach has been awarded the blue flag for water cleanliness, but still manages to be a dog friendly beach as well.

The Postcode for Church Bay is LL65 4ET
