This sheltered cove has a large, sandy, sloping beach backed by dunes and edged by rockpools. The Anglesey/Wales Coast Path runs alongside the beach and this part of the coastline is one of the most impressive stretches, with cliffs, sea arches and caves nearby. The surrounding area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is home to varied flora and fauna, including spotted rock rose (the county flower) and resident choughs.

Approached by a narrow winding lane with limited space at car park by the beach; toilets, pub located on the approach road. Dogs are allowed.
