Moelfre South Beach

Moelfre South beach is one of two beaches in Moelfre and is situated on the North easterly side of Anglesey. This pretty little beach is more central and maybe easier if you have young children and push chairs.

Like it’s sister beach the North beach this is also quite small beach but nearer to the centre of Moelfre and it is also a beach with beautifully smooth rounded large pebbles.

This beach is very pretty when the tide is in during summer, with its beautiful clear blue water, but can be a little busy during peak times!

Children playing at Moelfre South beach

Moelfre South beach is stunning when the tide is in, and is very popular with launching canoe’s and kayaks at high tide.

Moelfre is lucky to have two beaches, the South beach which is nearer the village of Moelfre which is a very small beach.

Then you have the North beach which you can walk up the hill and round to the right of the headland along a coastal path past the Sea watch Centre, with a statue to Dick Evans then past the newly built Moelfre lifeboat station which was rebuilt in 2014.

This station is normally open to the public where children will enjoy the sight of this new huge lifeboat in its brand new home. The North beach is to the left and if you carry on to the right you will come on to the sloping rocks which are used for fishing. The view from here is beautiful you can see across to Puffin island and the great Orme.


As the South beach is more central, there are more facilities, there is some limited pay and display parking, an ice cream parlour and for food you have a choice of either Anne’s Pantry or the Kinmel Arms, both are within meters of the beach.


Follow the road into the village from the main Amlwch road (A5025), carry on down the hill past Anne’s pantry on your left and the beach is on your right. Postcode is LL72 8HN

Very small ‘pay and display’ next to the beach, which is extremely busy during peak times. There is a larger car park which is FREE, as you come down the hill, turn left just after the chip shop and its about 50 yards on the right.

Dog Restrictions

No dog restrictions but can be very busy with young children.
