Church Bay is so called because of the nearby Llanrhuddlad church which is visible from the sea. A small and delightful little pebble beach. Some facilities are available nearby, and the restaurant is famous for its cooked lobster.
Certainly one of Anglesey’s most beautiful beaches. Winner of the European Blue Flag award since 2004. That should say it all. Lots of space, clean sand and ice cream parlours, a seaside shop, and food available right beside the beach. Parking is available, but often gets full
