Beaches around Anglesey continue to perform well according to figures from the Marine Conservation Society, released in the Good Beach Guide 2010.

The MCS publishes the Good Beach Guide each year and this helps visitors to Anglesey and other coastal destinations to make the best choice of beach for their needs.

As the 2009 Beach Guide showed, Anglesey again comes up with 17 top quality beaches many of which are able to fly the distinctive European Blue Flag, a benchmark for quality bathing water and coastal environment.

So if you are thinking of swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, surfing or even coasteering, it helps if the beach you choose for your activity is one of those in the list.

Among those Anglesey beaches featuring in the latest guide are Llanddwyn, Benllech and Trearddur Bay.

Rachel Wyatt of the Good Beach Guide says that Anglesey has some fantastic beaches".

Remember to take care if you are venturing into the sea and make sure young children are supervised at all times. Read and follow any safety guidance set out by the council or Coastguards on noticeboards near the beaches.

What do we see from the Beach?

Lovely to hear tourists comment on how great our beaches are on Anglesey.

A wonderful time was had by all on Lifeboat Day
in Moelfre, they say there was 10 thousand there that day. We do live in a area of outstanding natural beauty.

it is unbelievable that anyone would allow this wonderful place to be spoilt by industry and factories, scaring the wonderful sea views, and lovely countryside.

But not everyone loves the views, in fact most people seem to be resigned to loosing our scenery, some think it will bring jobs.

It does not matter if we loose jobs in the tourist industry, as long as we have jobs making and maintaining 1,500 wind turbines bigger and uglier than Blackpool tower killing the wild life and destroying our environment.

In The Daily Mail on Tuesday there is an article about how inefficient these wind farms are. it says that more than half of Britain's wind farms are operating at less than 25% capacity.

So why are we sacrificing our Island for this very expensive project does not anybody see that this is not good business?

Please protest before it is too late. Barbara Benllech Anglesey

we were on Anglesey over the weekend - it was great. we went to the beach at Rhosneigr and had a great time swiming and using our "family" kayak.

Also went to Porth dafarch beach sailing our dinghy from slipway at Treardur.
