Cable Bay

Cable Bay or Porth Trecastell is located between the town of Rhosneigr and Anglesey Circuit. Soft sandy beach to the rear and quite large when the tide is out, it is bordered by cliffs on either side so is relatively sheltered for bathing.

Popular with families due to its sheltered nature, on summer days it can feel like a sun trap. It is also a favorite among the Kayaking fraternity with its calm waters. There is also a section used by divers on the right hand side, the location is perfect for divers. Crystal clear waters and an abundance of marine wildlife. Moreover the rocks on the end of the cove is a venue often fished by sea anglers.

On a personal note I have seen dolphins here on several occasions, passing the end of the bay. There are videos created by divers showing the diverse marine life, blue Lobsters are seen regular in this area.

As the tide retreats sections of the beach open up to reveal rockpools which are always a family favorite. The amount of creatures you can find is amazing, Prawns, Fish and Sea Anemone are numerous.

Parking is directly behind the beach and is now pay and display but not expensive at £4 for the day. In summer there is usually an ice cream van or catering van parked up. No toilets though, there are some at the rear of Tyn Tywyn Beach towards Rhosneigr. I would advise walking as your parking spot will be taken in seconds!

Cable Bay Anglesey is definitely in the top 10 of beaches on the island.

Cable bay is so called due to the cable laid down in 1902. This was a link to Ireland that then went on to America though it’s no longer in use.

Closest toilets are on the car park behind the beach at Tyn Tywyn but they are not always open. Rhosneigr library car park does have public toilets with a 20p charge. LL64 5YJ
