Anglesey Beaches - Disabled Facilities/Access

by Naomi
(Cardiff)

Hi


My friends and I are thinking of visiting Anglesey in the summer and we have a friend who is in a wheelchair.

Are the beaches mainly hidden behind sand dunes or do any/some of them have a car park or promendae that a wheelchair could see the sea/beach from?

Are there any cafes /pubs that have a sea view?

Any other information or tips for disabled travellers would be much appreciated

Thanks

Naomi




Dear Naomi

Thank you for contacting me with your question.

I'll respond to your question later this evening, as I want to make sure I offer you as much detail as possible.

Many of the beaches are well served with facilities, though as you may have guessed, not all.

However, there are plenty of excellent and accessible areas, not necessarily the expected.

I'll write later,

Wil

Thanks for the input.

Thankfully Anglesey County Council is doing a good job - one beach at a time - and Arriva buses drop to pavement level on arrival so that my Mum and here friends and wheelchair users access and egress with lovely ease.

There used to be a First World War tank at the local Park in Holyhead in the 1930's and my Dad used to play on it.

Probably went toward the war effort on the next big bang.

wild wales beaches -
by: Anonymous


Natural nature in wild Wales doesn't supply bridges, ramps, escalators or elevators ? I know tanks in the sands of the western desert had tracks provided, but sand in the ball bearings was also a problem. We had a person here who had a very specialised car built and paid for by charitable locals' contributions. Later this same person took a small, struggling, local bus company to task over access... The small bus company could not afford it, and went under, with subsequent job losses.

beautiful Treaddur bay !
by: Drewi bach.

Treaddur bay would be my first choice here for views and cafe/s. I remember a ''down-ramp' at the northern end, but sand then follows. Other folks love Newry beach. But watching the waves crash onto the rocks at Treaddur Bay for me was fun. That and the wind blowing..Ahhh !!! LIFE ! glows.
