Red Wharf Bay, or Traeth Coch

Red Wharf Bay is a small village situated just off the A5025 road from Menai Bridge to Benllech. The village is in two distinct parts, upper and lower. The lower section is where one should find a handful of eateries. Red Wharf Bay used to have a modest ship-building industry, but that has long since gone. There is a Red Wharf Bay Sailing Club, but curiously that is based further up the coast at Traeth Bychan.

At low tide, over 10 square miles of sands are uncovered at Red Wharf Bay. However, visitors should note that the incoming tide is noted for its speed, and caution should be exercised if walking on the sands.
