North Wales is such a beauty spot that everything you could want for your next relaxing family holiday is right on its doorstep. So if you’re interested, take a look and get in touch today!

Newborough Beach

First on our list is the fantastic Newborough beach. Tucked away on the south coast of Anglesey, Newborough beach is home to one of the largest areas of sand dunes found in the British Isles. The beach, also known as Llanddwyn, boasts spectacular views over the Llyn Peninsula. The perfect stretch of the sea for watersports, you and your family will never have a  dull moment exploring both the water and sands here. Newborough beach has all the amenities that you could need, including refreshment vans and toilets. The blue flag awarded beach is also really clean, so there is no need to worry about your children’s safety.

West Shore Beach

The phenomenal beach at West Shore is next on our list of places that you should visit, and it’s easy to see why; with breathtaking views out over Anglesey and the quietness it provides thanks to being a little further away from the town centre should be noted! Appreciate the true beauty of Llandudno from the beach here. Kept immaculately clean and with a small tea room in close proximity, there is everything here that you need to have the best day out possible.

Harlech Beach

Four miles of calming ocean contrasts the conflict that used to take place at Harlech beach. Raising up from the top of the cliff, the spectacular Harlech castle looks out towards the sea. Built by Edward I in the 13th century, a long siege once took place here during the War of the Roses. On the beach, however, its dunes are a Site of Special Scientific Interest, as well as a National Nature Reserve. Once over the dunes, you’ll feel isolated from other families thanks to the sheer size of the beach. The beautifully clean water is the ideal place for you and your family to take a dip, and the golden sands provide the perfect sand castle building material.

Barmouth Beach

Southern Snowdonia’s most popular seaside resort, Barmouth, provides families with the perfect backdrop for a sunny day out. The mile long promenade is amazing for a walk, but it is the rolling dunes and blue sea that make this place one of our favourites.   One-half of the beach is dog-friendly, so if you’re looking to bring your pet pooch with you on your day out then look no further! The beach is also super close to the train station, with other amenities also nearby you needn’t stress as everything you need is at your fingertips!

Black Rock Sands Beach

Last on the list, but definitely not least is Black Rock Sands beach. When first arriving at Black Rock Sands, you might notice something a little unusual about the car parking facilities. Unlike most beaches with a designated area for you to park your car, Black Rock Sands actually charges customers £5 to park their car on the beach, making this the perfect place for families or for those who have difficulty walking! Once on the beach, there are a variety of food and refreshment options if that is what you are after. However, it is the stretch of unspoilt golden sand and crystal clear water that makes this place somewhere worth visiting! The dune-lined beach provides just enough shelter for families who are spending the day here, and in peak season half of the beach is also open to those who wish to bring a dog with them.  Images: Pearl BucknallNanimoIan  WarburtonNigel MykurGoleudy
