Anglesey launching

Any top tips on easy launch sites on Anglesey? Will be staying at Red Wharf Bay next week and fancy dipping the RIBs in. Need to launch a 6.5 and a 5.5 m RIB and will have a Range Rover to launch if needed.

Also, any advice on cruising areas would be much appreciated.

Thanks

The slipway at Nant Bychan is fine.Tide out leaves a good hard sand, to the left of the bay. It's the bay after Benllech, just before Molfre. So not so far from Red Wharf Bay. It's really nice up that side of the island towards Holyhead.
Have a good un.

if the weather is not so good there's a good slip in Menai, always get some shelter round there and loads of good cruising through the Straits, but I think you need insurance etc to launch, I'm sure someone will confirm that one!!

I normally launch from Conwy but plenty of guys on here launch Anglesey so you'll get plenty of advice .. I have launched from Beaumaris a few times which has a long easy access slip with plenty of parking ... , just 15 mins from RWB. Good council web site for details is:

Launching fees for power driven crafts / personal watercraft | Isle of Anglesey

The coastline around there is brilliant, lots of coves and interesting destinations ...

Enjoy ...

Yeah Traeth Bychan is very popular about 2miles north of Benllech .

During the summer months you would have to have proof of insurance as its a council designated launch site, as is Menai. Both sites have a 15 launch fee but This time of the year there will be no launch wardens on duty so its free.
Cruise.
Head past Moelfre to Lligwy beach and on to Ynys Dullas about 2 miles for seal watching. Continue on past point Lynas light house and into Porth Llaneillian for a sheltered stop. Further on is Amlwch, Bull Bay and the Brickworks bay. Stop off in moelfre at the Kimnel Inn or tide permitting Ship Inn at Red Wharf for a pint.
