Aberffraw is a long, sweeping, sandy beach backed by high dunes. Access to the beach is by foot across Aberffraw Common alongside the River Ffraw. Accommodation, shops and other facilities can be found in the small village. The walk across the common tends to deter people from using this beach for 'forces-of-nature' sports, but it can pick up some surf on occasion. These waves can be of decent quality too, breaking on the sandbars formed by the River Ffraw Generally though it is a nice pleasant beach for soaking up the sun and swimming in the clean waters.
