Things To Do On Anglesey With A Dog

Posted: 21st February, 2017

Anglesey is a wonderful place for all of the family to explore, and that doesn’t stop with humans – it’s also a fantastic place for our pets to enjoy.

Our golden coastline matched with our green, forest woodlands are the perfect place for paws to trek –  which means that your dog can enjoy a break on Anglesey as much as you.

We welcome dogs onsite at both Silver Bay and Woodland Falls, because we know your pet pooches are also a beloved member of your family unit. So if you’re planning on bringing your dog to our holiday park, or are simply popping over to Anglesey for a day visit – this blog is for you.


Running wild and free is one of every dog’s favourite pastimes – which is why they love frolicking in the sand at Silver Bay beach!

Our green coast award-winning beach provides a safe haven for your furry one to be let off of the leash and have some much-deserved exercise and fun.

There’s plenty of space for your dog to bound without disturbing anyone else enjoying a day out at Silver Bay beach – it’s the perfect solution for dog-loving families looking for an outdoor retreat suitable for everyone in their party.

Keen on taking in some local history? Then look no further than Beaumaris Castle! This striking tourist attraction, situated to the South East of Anglesey, dates back to the reign of Edward I (14th Century) and is best known as the castle that was never built.

Another beautiful part of the Anglesey coastline, this bay on the east of the isle is situated between Pentraeth and Benllech. It’s particularly fantastic for stretching your dog’s legs due to the sheer size of the bay. When the tide is at its lowest, the sands stretch almost 10 miles.

The village overlooking the bay is also a beautiful little place to visit if you want to quench your thirst or pick up a bite to eat. If you’re visiting by car, there’s also parking overlooking the bay.
