Beaumaris beach and pier from promenade

Beaumaris beach is easily accessed and you will need to get to the small beach early in the day as it can fill up quite quickly.

This beach is clean and safe and ideal for young children, and also has dog restriction from May through to September.

The beach at Beaumaris faces south towards the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia and gets the sun all day until late afternoon in the Summer.

There is also a lovely promenade with beautiful views towards Snowdonia, across to Bangor and then in the other direction towards Puffin Island and across to the Great Orme.

The two beaches at Beaumaris are separated by Beaumaris Pier which is a fantastic place for the children to crab fish from, in the summer months dozens of children line the pier with their buckets and crab lines

Beaumaris and its love affair with sailing

This beautiful town has a long and traditional connection with sailing, not only is it the home of the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club, but the RAYC also hosts the annual Menai Strait Regattas.

Held over the last week of July and first in August, when boats from many sailing clubs on the west coast come to enjoy the fortnight of racing, which can be very interesting if the wind blows.


Pleasure boat trips from Beaumaris Pier

You can also catch a pleasure trip by sea, Seacoast Safaris run pleasure trips to Puffin Island and they also run a faster, more exhilarating ride on their Rib (fast inflatable boat) to Puffin Island and down the Menai Strait under the two bridges.
