Details

Silver Bay is a beautiful, remote beach facing south into Cymyran Bay. The beach is wide and sandy with rocky outcrops to clamber over and plenty of opportunities for rock pooling. It is also popular for sailing, surfing and canoeing. The beach is backed by a conifer plantation, a Holiday Park and farmland and is bound by low rocky headlands. There is no direct vehicular access to the beach and visitors should park at neighbouring Borth Wen beach and use the spectacular Anglesey/Wales Coast Path to reach Silver Bay beach.

Seaside Award beach; dogs are allowed.
