This video of Sandy Beach on the West coast of Anglesey gives the viewer a feel of this fine location for sailing a dinghy or enjoying a range of watersports.
The Anglesey Coastal Path runs along this beautiful sandy beach, south towards Valley and the Stanley Embankment and north towards Church Bay.
Just above the beach there is a caravan park where some new units have been added, reaching right up to the edge of the beach. They offer a prime location for anyone wanting to have a holiday home with virtually a beach for a front garden

There is a wide enough channel stretching to the west to allow dinghies and even small to medium sized yachts to approach Sandy Beach.
You can anchor a yacht off the beach and then either swim ashore or use a tender. Anchoring in the bay is a breeze with the prevailing south westerly winds, so long as it is not more than force 3-4.
Winds anywhere between the north and south easterly direction are also fine. Only a strong northwest breeze is likely to cause quite a swell and so make conditions difficult for a yacht trying to enter or leave the beach area.
Getting here is easy by road. When on the A5025 from Valley to Amlwch, take the first left turning after leaving the village of Llanfachraeth. The minor road is signposted for Llanfwrog and Penrhyn.
At the first junction take the left turning and at the second junction, the right fork. There is some parking space above the beach.
