Shore dives are often ideal for first sea dives but in themselves offer interesting experiences allowing more flexibility when planning:
- Trefor Pier – Located on the Llyn peninsular it is a site popular because of it’s safety and diverse marine life. Unfortunately the pier has now been removed so care is needed.
- Criccieth beach – a sheltered beach dive with lots of marine life. You can even have an ice cream afterwards.
- Porth Ysgaden – on the llyn peninsular this is a nice sheltered site suitable for novices.
- Menai Strait – There are a number of shore dives near the suspension bridge. Slack water is required so careful planning is needed. More for the experienced diver.
- Porth Castell (Ravens point) at Trearddur bay on Angelsey – this is a nice sheltered site suitable for novices and family outings on the beach.
- Mackenzie landing in Holyhead – A dive with a difference, there are steps!!. Great fun with lots to see. keep a look out for lost holiday makers property.
- Newry beach in Holyhead – close to mackenzie landing but with sand, chips and ice cream. A family day out.
- Wreck of the Royal charter near Moelfre – A dive off the beach of this famous treasure ship. Access to the beach is not for the faint hearted.
