Distance to beach Can be reached in 10 mins on foot Things to do / Places to Visit nearby Beaumaris is a captivating seaside town, with its mix of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture.

Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour is situated in the heart of Beaumaris and brings the finest ice creams and sorbets to the beautiful resort town of Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey. This ice cream has to be the best in Wales (and I’ve sampled most of them!). Great selection of flavours, helpful friendly staff, and even outdoor seating. A real treat. Beaumaris Castle. A World Heritage Site, Beaumaris Castle has a perfect concentric design, is surrounded by a water moat, and has stunning views over the Menai straits and Snowdonia mountain range. A great castle, albeit one that was never finished. The walls are very impressive and surrounded by a moat. It is worth taking the stairs up to the walls and walking around the views are outstanding. Beaumaris Gaol and Courthouse. Recommend buying the joint ticket to see both. Both buildings are pretty much as they were hundreds of years ago. Great insight into law and order and how it worked and failed back then. Including Beaumaris’s links to pirates. Beaumaris Pier is located on the banks of the Menai Strait in the town of Beaumaris, Anglesey, North Wales. Beaumaris Pier is popular with anglers, holiday makers and children simply having good old fashioned fun catching crabs from the clear waters of the strait. Rib Ride. Experience the tranquility of the Menai Straits, its stately homes, ferocious tides and whirlpools or travel seaward to Llandwyn Island, a rocky peninsula of outstanding beauty surrounded by white sandy beaches.

Your guide to Beaumaris
Welcome to Beaumaris
Named by the Normans who built its dramatic castle for Edward I, Beaumaris translates from the French as “beautiful marshes.” So it shows. This town sits magically on the eastern end of the Menai Strait, the slip of water between the island of Anglesey and mainland Wales. A walk along its seafront on arrival is recommended: you’ll be treated to Snowdonia’s rugged peaks in the distance, the town’s sweetly restored Victorian pier, and pleasure boats, especially in high season, gently puffing along.
The town proper hosts some remarkable historic buildings, including the 14th-century Tudor Rose, one of the United Kingdom’s oldest black-and-white timber-framed houses, and the Beaumaris Courthouse and Gaol, both open as eerie, characterful museums. Beaumaris is also bustling with places to eat and drink: everything is here, including bakeries, bistros, tapas bars, and tandoori restaurants. It’s also a great base to see the island, only 30 minutes’ scenic drive from the beaches at Benllech (with excellent facilities for visitors who need help with access), Red Wharf Bay, and Newborough Sands.
How do I get around Beaumaris?
Getting here by train is a particular treat. The nearest station, a special request stop, is in a village with the second-longest name in the world (it’s 58 letters long, and known as Llanfairpwll for short — and of course it has a long platform sign which is perfect for photos). You’ll have to organise transport for the six miles to Beaumaris from here, though. A stop earlier on the North Wales Coast Line is Bangor, which has half-hourly bus service to Beaumaris; this train route also terminates at Holyhead, for sea transport to Ireland. Drivers travelling west to Beaumaris will enjoy the scenic pleasures of the A55, giving stunning views of the coast to the north and the mountains to the south. The nearest airport is Liverpool John Airport (LPL), an hour and 45-minute drive away.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Beaumaris?
Summers in Beaumaris can often be surprisingly warm for Wales, influenced by Anglesey’s pleasant position in the Gulf Stream. This often makes beachcombing, sunbathing, and sea-swimming a joy, sometimes with seals bobbing alongside you in the water. The warmer seasons also bring boat trips heading out to Puffin Island, nine miles east of Beaumaris at the end of the Menai Strait, which is an uninhibited outcrop teeming with wildlife. April to July are the best months to see puffins there, as well as razorbills, common guillemots, and kittiwakes. Also, if you’re lucky, a porpoise or dolphin might pop round. September is the month of the Beaumaris Food Festival, which fills the town with more than 100 exhibitors, and many happy, hungry mouths. Autumn and winter are quieter, but Anglesey’s milder winters mean they’re a joy for walking and gentler sight-seeing.
What are the top things to do in Beaumaris?
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path
This coastal path hugs Anglesey’s coast for 130 miles, taking in rolling dunes, woodland, heather, and farmland. From Beaumaris, a walk south to Moel-y-don takes in the beautiful Eisteddfod stone circle, kissing gates in the woodland, and the Menai Suspension Bridge.
Built by Edward I’s men as part of his campaign to conquer North Wales, Beaumaris Castle is impressively fortified with turrets and walls within walls (it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its majesty, even though it was never completed). It also played a crucial part in Owain Glyndŵr’s Welsh rebellion and the English Civil War. An exhibition and digital trail delve into all the dastardly details.
Ten minutes drive from Beaumaris brings you to an unexpected set of ancient treasures: a windy old toll road (bring your change), a pretty dovecote, monastery ruins, and a church with a 10th-century cross. Penmon Point sits at the end of it all, looking out to the kayakers circling Puffin Island, and Llandudno’s headland, Great Orme.
