Sibbing around north Wales

Can anyone help out.im finally in a position to give my sib (4.3m quicksilver)and mariner 30 a test run.school holidays are around early June so what I'm after is a site near to a beach that I can take our tourer on and have a play in the boat.Don't mind if I have to travel from the site to the beach so has anyone any suggestions.I have been diving to Trevor pier but can't seem to find any info on launching from there.
Thanks Pete

Wow a tourer and a 4.3m and a 30hp - What do you tug that load with?
Oh and we fancy N Wales for 2013 so will watch with interest. This years holidays are already booked including 10 days on the shore of Windermere.

Totally agree thats another forum
Only site i knew of was St Davids at Anglesey but after calling them they only let holiday residents use the slipway not tourers.
Were of down Corwall in August to Pentewan sands love the place.

I seem to remember that last time i went diving there was a body in a little cabin taking payment for launching and checking insurance (which i do have)I also have in the back of my head that a licence of some sort needs to be obtained from the council but i will be buggered if i can find anything on the net.

Try here. Has a great beach, massive sand dunes, boat launching facilities, and a great for kids. Spent a few days there in 2011 and my (now) five and eight year old haven't shut up about it. Oh, dog loved it too.
