is located on the north east coast of Anglesey, North Wales. There are
three beaches within the bay. Traeth Bach (Welsh for small beach), and
it's neighbour, the larger Traeth yr Ora (don't ask), both face east
toward the Irish Sea. The third beach, Dulas Beach, stretches in a
westerly direction along the estuary of the Afon Goch (Red River). At
first site, during high tide, the estuary appears to be a land locked
inland sea or lake. But in fact there is an opening at the north east
corner of the estuary that allows the tide to ebb and flow. When the
tide rescedes the estuary is a massive expanse of sand and mud but I
could not recommend it as a safe beach for children due to the speed of
the tides. In all it is a fascinating landscape and I have visited the
bay several times. It can be disconcerting when travelling by car to Dulas Bay
from Lligwy Beach (arriving on the east bank of the Afon Goch close to
Glantraeth) as the already narrow road becomes an even narrower track
until there is no way to go but on to the sand. Don't be tempted to
drive on to the sand. I have seen many cars and indeed four wheel drive
vehicles stuck on the Welsh beaches and flooded by the incoming tide.
Fortunately there is another option that involves reversing back up the
lane a few hundred yards to a field gateway where there is ample room
to manoeuvre a vehicle back to the highway. The Anglesey Coastal Path
skirts the estuary at Dulas Bay on it's way from Moelfre to Llaneilian and Point Lynas. Don't miss it ....it's a terrific walk!
