About Traeth Yr Ora

Traeth yr Ora is an isolated, sandy beach about half way between the villages of Amlwch and Benllech and is one of the island’s hidden gems – reachable only after a walk of a couple of miles from the larger Traeth Lligwy. One of three beaches that form the shore of Bae Dulas, Traeth yr Ora lies on the north east coast of the island.

Access to deeper water comes a little way out from the shore where the seafloor drops quite steeply – meaning that swimming should take place close to the shore or be done only by strong swimmers. The nearest car park is at the north end of Traeth Lligwy which is also where you’ll find the nearest amenities.

The area around Traeth yr Ora is mostly undeveloped, meaning that the amenities on offer are virtually non-existent. However, the beach is really a place from which to watch sunsets, relax or take in as part of a longer coastal walk – and it serves those purposes tremendously.

Activities

The activities on offer on and around Traeth yr Ora generally revolve around the landscape. While strong swimmers can swim Bae Dulas to their heart’s content, for the most part visitors will need to be content with the magnificent sea views, the wildlife both around the beach and on the nearby salt marshes of Afon Goch.

As a result of the lack of amenities, Traeth yr Ora is best viewed as part of a day of walking – somewhere quiet and isolated to sit and picnic before heading back to the more populous area of Lligwy.

Location

Traeth yr Ora is located on the north east coast of the island, and visitors will need to park a couple of miles walk from the beach at the north of Lligwy beach and walk along a coastal path from there, past Porth y Mor all the way to Traeth yr Ora, or at Maes Parcio Brynrefail and follow signposts to Traeth Lligwy and Capel Elen then along the single track road to Dulas.

A few miles away from City Dulas and slightly less from Rhoslligwy, Traeth yr Ora is one of the most isolated beaches on the island. As such, there are very few amenities in the immediate vicinity – though it’s really a beach that allows an escape from some of the busier beaches during peak tourist season and there are sacrifices that are made for that pleasure!

Visitors to Anglesey will find the beach by taking Pentraeth Road (A5025) from either of the bridges which becomes Bangor Road (A5025) and then heading to one of the two car parks nearest to the beach and walking the final two miles.
