Kayaking around Anglesey

The Isle of Anglesey is a fantastic location for water sports and has some amazing coastline to explore if you love kayaking.

One of the great things about kayaking on Anglesey is the fact that it has so many beaches and excellent places to launch your kayak. Being an Island, we have an excellent variety of locations which can help provide different conditions depending on the weather and the level of your skill.

Great Places to launch your Kayak

Just a few of the many locations where you can launch your kayak with some spectacular attractions close by are listed below: Locations

Launching at Porth Y Wrach in Menai Bridge

MENAI BRIDGE - Porth Y Wrach

Menai Bridge is a great place to launch your kayak as it is very close to the Menai Suspension bridge, the Swellies and also Ynys Gorad Goch. The Swellies at high tide is a fast flowing body of water running between the Britannia bridge and the Menai Suspension bridge with an Island in the middle.

Due to the very rocky seabed, this creates some fantastic whirlpools and back eddies to play in! Parking is limited, in the nicer weather you may need to drop off your gear and find some where up the road.

Ready to Kayak at Cemaes bay beach

Cemaes Bay beach

If your looking to explore the top end of Anglesey, then Cemaes Bay beach is a great starting point. The coastal scenery up this end of the island is just magnificent.

There is usually plenty of parking, although a small fee is payable. Access to the beach is easy. Cemaes Bay is only 35 minutes from the bridges. Cemaes Bay had good toilet facilities with plenty of choice for food and drink in the local vicinity.

Launching Kayaks from Moelfre beach on Anglesey

Moelfre South beach

Another great place to launch your Kayak as you can see. Probably easier at high water, although when the tide goes out it’s just firm sand as opposed to mud! Nearby toilets and places to eat.
