Not only is Anglesey a great island to explore for us humans – it’s also a fabulous place to bring your pet dog, too.
Our golden coastline matched with our green, forest woodlands are the perfect place for paws to trek – which means that even your dog can take a holiday to Anglesey too.
We welcome dogs onsite here at Silver Bay Holiday Village too, because we know your pet pooches are also a beloved member of your family unit. So if you’re planning on bringing your dog to our holiday park, or are simply popping over to Anglesey for a day visit – this blog is for you.
1. SILVER BAY BEACH
Running wild and free is one of every dog’s favourite pastimes – which is why they love frolicking in the sand at Silver Bay beach!
Our green coast award-winning beach provides a safe haven for your furry one to be let off of the leash and have some much-deserved exercise and fun. And best of all, you can rest assured they’ll be safe here, because our coast is one of the cleanest in the country!
After a run on the beach, why not let them splash in the water or perhaps play a game of catch? There’s plenty of space for your dog to bound without disturbing anyone else enjoying a day out at Silver Bay beach – it’s the perfect solution for dog-loving families looking for an outdoor retreat suitable for everyone in their party.
2. HOLYHEAD LAND TRAIN
The dog attractions at Silver Bay aren’t all based outdoors. In fact, the Holyhead Land Train is accessible to all the family and they welcome pet pooches aboard, too!
Perfect for viewing the beautiful Breakwater area (which we’ll also talk about later in this article) the train will take you along a 1 and three quarter mile journey – allowing you to kick back and enjoy the view.
Trips are hourly between 12 and 6pm every day during the school holidays, and it’s also open weekends outside of holiday time too. So if you’re planning on heading over, make sure you put the Holyhead Land Train onto your schedule!
3. THE WHITE EAGLE
After all the exploring, you and your loved ones are going to need a bite to eat – and one pub that openly welcomes dogs on the island is The White Eagle.
The establishment is popular with visitors and locals, and from their tasty starters including Baked Camembert to their Pepper Venison Steaks, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
To explore more about the pub, head on over to their website here. You can also explore their scrumptious dinner menu online – but we’ll have to warn you, your stomach will be rumbling by the end of it!
4. HOLYHEAD BREAKWATER COUNTRY PARK

Our nature reserves and woodlands are ideal for families with dogs, but for something a little different we recommend you head on over to Holyhead Breakwater Country Park.
Found next to Holyhead town, the park is on the site of a former quarry and was opened in 1990. Full of trees, rocks and stunning greenery, your dog and your family with love rambling through this lovely park.
Dogs can be let off their leads to explore, just make sure to take extra care to watch out for other wildlife on the way including ducks and horses. And after a wander there’s a lovely cafe where you fill everyone’s boots before exploring a little more.
It’s the 3rd most popular thing to do in Holyhead according to TripAdvisor, so make sure you don’t miss this activity for all the family – whether they’ve got four legs or two!
5. SEACOAST SAFARIS
Why only stick to land when you bring your dog on holiday? Seacoast Safaris permit your four-legged friends on their boats too – making it the perfect afternoon out for everyone.
They invite well-behaved pooches on their Cerismar Two Cruises. You can either head on over to Puffin Island, which, you guessed it, is home to a range of cute, little puffins – or you can choose to explore the magnificent Menai Straits.
Seats should be reserved in advance to avoid disappointment and prices are £9.95 for adults and £7.95 for children. If you have a family of four, you can also purchase a £30 family ticket.
