"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Red Wharf Bay Beach

This long sandy beach is located at the eastern end of Red Wharf Bay and it is great for bathing, paddling, beach combing and walking. Whilst it offers basic amenities including toilets and beach café, most visitors travel to the nearby village of Llanddona or Beaumaris for a wider choice of amusements. Llanddona is perhaps most famous for its tales of witchcraft, and 'the witches of Llanddona' are well-known. Historically, these ship-wrecked foreigners settled on common land along the sea shore, and were feared among the local community

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
