Sandy beach (Porth Tywyn Mawr) is located on the far west coast of Anglesey, there are two holiday parks to the rear of the beach and very little else.
Sandy beach is beautiful, what is striking is just how crystal clear the water is at times, the view from the beach is straight out across the Irish Sea.
It is a relatively safe beach for swimming or paddling, it is a gently slopping beach that is quite shallow close in. There are no lifeguard facilities on this beach which though is something to be aware of. Further up the beach to the north there are rockpools that are slowly uncovered as the tide recedes. Kids can lose hours searching through the pools in search of crabs, prawns and other mini beasts..
Backed by soft sand it is great for relaxing in the sun. It is also a dog friendly beach unlike some others on Anglesey, just don’t forget to clean up after your furry friends. There is plenty of room for everyone
To the left of Sandy beach, next to the holiday park is a slipway, ideal for boat launching. The site has a tractor unit or two to assist with launches. I can think of worse places to launch. The are plenty of boats and jet skis flying around when the weather is good, these don’t feel intrusive. you could almost be sat somewhere in the Mediterranean.
The holiday park to the rear has a shop and restaurant should you need anything, the beach is in quite a remote location so it can come in handy. The road down to the beach and holiday park can be very congested in summer as its a popular beach. It effectively becomes as single track road as visitors park up along the narrow lane. Don’t let that put you off as there is plenty of room, its an amazing place to visit, in fact you should definitely visit. You will be back if you do.
Sandy beach Anglesey is busy during the summer holidays as it is a great all rounder! If you are in the area you definitely must pay it a visit. When you see it you will know why. Its also a great place to visit outside of the holiday season.
