image for Beach item typeTraeth Bach (Little Beach), Cemaes

Beach, free entry


Located on the North Anglesey Heritage Coast, the small harbour village of Cemaes is the most northern village in Wales. There are two great beaches Traeth Mawr (meaning simply 'Big Beach') and Traeth Bach (meaning 'Small Beach') offering safe bathing, golden sands, and rock pooling for the children. Traeth Bach is located on the west side of the bay, over the river from Traeth Mawr and is a popular place for kayaking and windsurfing. At high tide there is a little beach but you can still discover Samson's Rock which is steeped in village folklore. A slipway gives disabled visitors and those with infants access onto the beach. A range of local shops, cafes and pubs are available in the pretty village just behind the beach. The Anglesey Coast path runs through Cemaes in both directions. The scenery to the west is some of the most remote on the island and the route takes in the National Trust owned Nature Reserve at Cemlyn, while to the east the footpath follows rocky clifftops with spectacular views.

Parking. Dogs are allowed.
