Red Wharf Bay, also known as Traeth Coch (Welsh for "red beach"), is a village and a wide sandy bay in the Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the east coast of the island of Anglesey in Wales. The bay lies between the villages of Pentraeth and Benllech. It is also close to Castell Mawr Rock, thought to be the site of an Iron Age fort.

Red Wharf Bay beach itself has a large expanse of sand at low tide.

  • Lovely bay area just around coast from Beaumaris. Sand can be a bit soft in places so wellies or good boots needed. Lovely walk up to the rocky area great views. Plenty of parking but fills...

  • Lovely secluded place with 2 great places to eat and drink. Very small car parking area though
  • Beautiful bay with Curlews, Oystercatchers and Little Egrets in Autumn feeding when the tide is out. Careful though don't get caught by the incoming tide it's very very quick!
