Between 1st May and 30th September, no dogs on the main area of beach. Dogs must be on a leash on the promenade. A corridor at the top of the beach allows access to unrestricted beach to the south (see Anglesey county Council web site).
Benllech has regained the Blue Flag for 2013. The beach has a proud record of unbroken Blue Flag success for many years.Beaches are awarded the Blue Flag based on compliance with 32 criteria covering the following:
Included not just because it is a popular sandy beach sheltered from westerlies.
This was where I and my siblings spent only too many happy hours enjoying the privilege of having such
a playground just down the road during our juvenile years.
The beach can get busy, especially at weekends, and if a spring tide is in (check here) you might wonder whether there would be more beach somewhere else. Be that as it may, there are usually donkey rides; the beach is a regular venue for the United Beach Mission and is good for fishing (off the rocks to the N) and boating (slipway).
I recommend excursions: south along the sand to St. Davids point marking the start of the vast red Wharf Bay, where you can explore the limestone outcrop of Castell Mawr (cave at one corner, one point of weakness for the bold to carefully scramble to the top); or over the rocks and fossiliferous limestone beds to the north to a little cove known locally as the Creek with a natural rock arch and, for the keen, on via the Coast Path to another cove known as Borth Wen and eventually to Traeth Bychan (or even Moelfre). Fine sea cliffs and coastal scenery, rich in sea birds.
