Aberffraw beach, or Traeth Mawr as it is known in
Welsh, is a beautiful long sandy beach set against a backdrop of
glorious sand dunes. Some say the beach is the best in Anglesey and
indeed the beach is popular with locals and visitors alike. The beach is
particularly attractive in its setting next to the inlet of the Afon
Ffraw and the rocky headland of Braich-lwyd.
Aberffraw Dunes are as high as 30 feet and more and they are a Site of
Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and also a Special Area of
Aberffraw beach has excellent water quality (2008). There are no beach
facilities but a short walk takes you to the village of Aberffraw where
there is both a village shop and a heritage centre and with luck the
attractive looking old pub will have reopened (2008). A cafe with
refreshments and toilet facilities is available at the Llys Llywelyn
