Attraction Information

  • Beaches icon Beaches

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Porth Dafarch Beach is a quiet and secluded sand and rock cove with European Blue Flagged waters which are great for bathing in. That said there's no lifeguard cover, but there is a beach warden from Easter to September, and it's firmly populated by dinghy sailers and kayakers.

Surrounded by cliffs the beach is covered in lovely rock pools both in and off shore, often full of mini sea life to discover. Divers can delight in the ones just off shore, and more experienced divers will love the wreck of the 1886 Missouri which lays half a mile offshore.

Walk north west along the dramatic Anglesey coastal path and you reach Ty Mawr and South Stack, a tiny island with a lighthouse and precipitous cliffs on either side. There are 400 steps down to the island if you're determined to explore, or you can watch the 4000 odd birds, including puffins, kittiwakes and razorbills, nesting on the cliffs from the RPSB's information centre at Ellins Tower where binoculars and telescopes are provided and the views are truly extraordinary.

Immediate facilities are limited to toilets but they do have disabled access and baby changing.
