The large sandy beach at Aberffraw Bay faces S and offers good flat water sailing conditions in NW wind. In S and SW winds this beach is one of the first in the area to get waves though this spot is not as popular with the locals as Rhosneigr. There is a strong rip tide running out of the river estuary and inexperienced sailors may find themselves heading sideways without warning.
