We visited Benllech Beach again this year during our stay near Caernarfon. We had two of our grandchildren with us and they insisted on going to Benllech beach as we have had such wonderful times there over the years. The beach is well kept and a man is always picking up debris and any litter that has been dropped by us tourists.It is a blue flag beach and when the tide is out it is exceelent for the kids to play ball. The car park is just above the beach and just across the road. My only "beef" is it cost £4 for the day to park which I think is just a bit steep! There is a good cafe/shop and takeaway just above the beach. We only had drinks so I can't comment on the food. I noticed that some previous reviews had commented about dogs on the beach but we saw no evidence of them while we were there so there was not a problem as far as I could see.

I've been coming to this beach all my life, this beach has been our family holiday for at least 4 generations. Every time i have been there, dogs have been on the section there allowed to go on, the cafe has always been open however that is because we go when it is the 6 weeks. The cafe closes in the winter. This beach has been given the blue flag a couple of years ago, the beach is always tidy and the sea is always clean!

Nice family friendly beach but unfortunately ruined by ignorant dog owners on a beach which has dog restrictions. There are 4 large signs showing area where dogs are allowed and are ignored. There were 23 couples with dogs in the space of 30 minutes when we were there. 2 dogs defecated in area where children play and were not picked up. This beach will never achieve a clean beach status.

Not much there, cafe was closed, looks a little run down and tired. Beach seemed very clean though, dogs are kept off for parts of the year, although they were on in the evening as no-one there to monitor!
