City Dulas Anglesey Wales
Click for more information
Dulas Bay 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!
