Red Wharf Bay (Traeth Coch)

Red Wharf Bay (Traeth Coch)

Anglesey, North Wales


For a quiet and tranquil stroll, a visit to Red Wharf Bay is a must. The bay is located between the villages of Pentraeth and Benllech on the East cost of the Isle of Anglesey.

A visit at low tide will uncover almost 10 square miles of fine sand. Families can enjoy looking out for a range of wildlife as the bay is a designated nature reserve and species will include waterfowl, waders, shelduck, porpoise and purple sandpipers. The wharf is surrounded by sand dunes and salt marshes so families will also see a large number of plant species. The scenery is beautiful and is a relatively quiet bay with lots of small boats.

Along the waters edge is the small village which consists of three restaurants all with impressive views over the bay, and offer a place to grab a bite to eat or even a quick drink.

Dogs are permitted on the beach.

There is no life guard on duty.

Car parking is available.

Additional information:
*Check the tides to make the most out of your visit. When Clued in with kids visited the tide wasn’t completely out and so we mainly saw a pebbled terrain with large bodies of water covering the fine sand below. The tide can also come in quickly so take care.
*You can walk all the way along the beach to Benllech.
*Be mindful of potential jellyfish.
*The circular walk takes around two hours.
