We are thrilled to announce that we are on the list of the cleanest beaches in North Wales.

Clean Beaches in North Wales

New figures revealed earlier this month found that North Wales has some of the cleanest bathing water in Europe. 34 out of a total of 44 beaches in the area have achieved the EU’s highest water standard, ‘excellent’. We’re thrilled to announce Silver Bay beach is on that list.

The remaining spots received either a ‘good’ or ‘sufficient’ rating for water quality. The figures also show that the amount of ‘excellent’ waters across Wales has gone up from 78 to 83 over the past year.

Excellent bathing water quality is one of the key criteria required for a beach to earn the prestigious Blue Flag status; we are proud to have been awarded a Green Coast Award, part of the Blue Flag awards, earlier this year.

Wales Coast Awards

The Blue Flag is part of the Wales Coast Awards, run by Keep Wales Tidy, which honours the region’s best beaches and marinas. This year, we became the first private business to apply for a coast award on behalf of a beach. We are now the proud owners of the Green Coast Award, which is awarded to beaches that don’t have the infrastructure and management of a traditional seaside resort. The Green Coast Award recognises the hidden gems along our coastline and we are thrilled that Silver Bay has earned that accolade.

To be awarded the Blue Flag status a beach must meet a strict set of criteria. This includes cleanliness, safety and facilities. The award also looks at beaches that meet high environmental standards and tough international bathing water quality standards.

The Blue Flag is important as it helps to set the standard high for beaches, marinas and boat tour operators. It also guarantees that you, as a visitor, have arrived at a quality destination.

Our holiday homes are located within walking distance from Silver Bay beach, perfect for a beach day or a leisurely stroll. The beach is also home to our school holiday activities, such as our sandcastle competition and beach mudder (think Tough Mudder but with sand).

The Blue Flag Award recognises beaches, marinas and boats for their high environmental and quality standards. The award is internationally recognised and reassures visitors that a beach is safe and clean. There are 7 beaches on Anglesey with a Blue Flag award, keep reading below to see which beaches have been awarded for their excellence. To be awarded the Blue Flag status, beaches, marinas and boats must meet a certain set of criteria, a few examples of criteria include: 

Environmental Education 

A beach map locating different facilities must be on the beach, along with information on the award itself and details of the water quality. Increasing awareness and care for the local environment is an important aspect of the Blue Flag award and therefore at least five activities that promote this must be carried out, preferably during the Blue Flag season. 

Water Quality 

The beach must comply with the water quality sampling, no industrial, waste-water or sewage should affect the beach area. 

Environmental Management  

The beach and surrounding areas must be clean and maintained, waste bins and containers must be available in adequate numbers with facilities for recycling and an adequate number of toilet facilities must be available and kept clean at all times. 

Safety and Services 

First aid equipment must be available on the beach, including lifeguards if appropriate, along with a supply of water and emergency plans to cope with pollution risks. 

Blue Flag Beaches in Anglesey 

Anglesey has an impressive 6 Blue Flag beaches as of 2020, meaning it is home to some of the best quality beaches in the world. Take a look at what beaches have earned this international, prestigious status: 

Llanddona 

Llanddona beach is located on the Eastern side of the Red Wharf Bay Area. It is a great family beach and has an excellent reputation for windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea fishing.

Church Bay 

Church Bay beach is a sand and pebble beach backed by high cliffs, situated near Holyhead on Anglesey. The excellent water quality at the beach makes Church Bay an ideal place for swimming, along with other fun activities such as sailing and fishing. The beach can be accessed via a steep footpath from the village. If you fancy a bite to eat during your visit to Church Bay, The Lobster Pot is definitely a popular choice, read more of our top restaurants on Anglesey here.  read more of our top restaurants on Anglesey

Porth Dafarch 

Porth Dafarch is a sandy cove located between Treaddur Bay and Holyhead. This beach is a very popular diving and snorkelling spot due to the easy access and exit and the wreck of 1886 Missouri, situated around half a mile from the shore.

Trearddur Bay 

Situated within a couple of miles of Holyhead, Treaddur Bay is one of the most popular Blue Flag beaches on Anglesey, due to its cleanliness and size. There is a large stretch of sand and an array of water sports are available such as canoeing, water-skiing and surfboarding.

Llanddwyn, Newborough 

Llanddwyn beach, also known as Newborough, is a 3 and a half-mile sandy beach that stretches from Llanddwyn Island to Abermenai Point and is backed by Newborough Forrest. Facilities include cold showers, barbeque areas, picnic tables and drinking water.

All of these blue flag beaches (except Church Bay) have dog restrictions from 1st May to 30th September every year. 

Silver Bay Holiday Village

Silver Bay Holiday Village has additionally been featured on a list of the cleanest beaches on Anglesey, due to our Blue Flag beach status. Here at Silver Bay Holiday Village, we have an ongoing commitment to preserving the natural environment of the Silver Bay area, and we’ve received both a David Bellamy Award and the Blue Flag Award in recognition of our efforts.

We are thrilled to announce that we received a Green Coast Award by Keep Wales Tidy.

The Green Coast Award recognises the beautiful, untouched and rugged beaches for their excellent water quality and unspoiled environment. Unlike the beaches that have received a Blue Flag Award, a Green Coast Award beach doesn’t have the infrastructure and intensive management generally associated with the more traditional seaside resort.

In order to receive the Green Coast Award the beach must comply with the following criteria:

  • Have excellent water quality
  • Encourage dog and horse owners to clean up after their animals by providing suitable facilities and literature
  • Have a guardianship scheme in place
  • Provide information on locally organised environmental activities
  • Public access to the beach must be safe and well maintained

Wales has some of the most beautiful and well managed beaches in the world. The Wales Coast Awards help to raise environmental awareness, recognise good practice and promote Wales as an international destination.

18 beaches in Wales received the Green Coast Award this year, recognising all the hidden gems on our coastline. The award helps to encourage people to “adopt” areas of the coast. This helps contribute towards the sustainability of the area while promoting volunteering. We are also the first private business to apply for a coast award on behalf of a beach.

The local contribution is evident in recent news with Anglesey announced as the UK’s first Plastic Free Community. This was decided by the marine conservation charity, Surfers Against Sewage.

What other environmental initiatives are we involved in?

Obeewan Silver Bay beekeeper

Our dedication to preserving the natural environment and supporting British wildlife is a priority for us. We also received the David Bellamy Gold Award for our commitment to protecting the local wildlife, reducing energy use, recycling waste, and supporting the local community. As part of our commitment to the rural environment and the impact of the coastal path, we have also started to plant indigenous species to reestablish the flora and fauna.

And not forgetting our honey bees. The bees are still in their winter home at the moment but will be moving back this month. They were very busy during the warm spell in April; so much so that we had to hire an extra pair of hands (or paws). We also made up some extra frames in anticipation but Obeewan was too busy eating all the honey so our beekeeper, Jonathan, had to do it all by himself. Starting in the May half term holidays, we will be offering ‘Meet the Bees’ sessions throughout the summer so our owners can have the opportunity to meet the queen and her workers.

You can find out more about our beach and boat park as well as any further updates on our ongoing work to benefit the local wildlife and environment.

Silver Bay Holiday Village are now members of the National Trust, Wildlife Trust, RSPB and Red Squirrel Trust. We have also, once again, been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award. We are very proud of this achievement and it further strengthens our commitment to conserving the local area and wildlife. Read on to find out about each membership and what this means for Silver Bay and our owners and visitors.

National Trust and Wildlife Trust

As a member of the National Trust we aim to help the organisation achieve its aims of giving everyone access to Britain’s beautiful landscapes and spectacular coastlines whilst helping to take care of it. Similarly, our membership with the Wildlife Trust will help support the preservation of wildlife and wild places in the local area as well as helping our owners get closer to nature.

RSPB

Silver Bay and the local area is home to a multitude of bird species, from puffins to sparrow-hawks, so it’s no surprise that we’re a member of the RSPB. With species numbers declining dramatically in recent years, we’ll be working with the RSPB to help their recovery.

Red Squirrel Trust

Another animal that is at risk in our local area is the red squirrel. Earlier this month we had a visit from Holly, our Red Squirrel Ranger from the Red Squirrel Trust, and we are over the moon to hear that there is evidence of red squirrel activity in our woodland area. Holly will be popping back to check on the activity so we’ll make sure to keep you updated. Why not take a walk and see if you can spot one yourself?

David Bellamy Award

Last but not least, we’re happy to announce that we have once again being awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award. This award recognises our commitment to protecting the local wildlife, reducing our energy use, recycling our waste, and supporting the local community.

To find out more about our beach and surrounding area, take a look at our beach page. We’ll also be keeping you updated on local wildlife and nature so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be in the know. If you would like to find out more about owning a holiday lodge here at Silver Bay, you can download our online brochure or request a callback and a member of our friendly team will be in touch.

Over the next couple of months we are welcoming a brand new football pitch together with a multi use games area (MUGA) to provide all of our owners the perfect space to have fun and play a multitude of sports.

The new football pitch (turf being laid as we speak) will be situated on the field behind the spa and will be accessed by a new path. Whether it’s a large group or just a couple of friends having a kickabout, the new pitch will offer a great space for the whole family to enjoy. The backdrop of the Llyn Peninsula will make this a stunning area to enjoy a little exercise and competition!

The tennis court is also currently being transformed into a MUGA, meaning the court will be multifunctional – great to play tennis as well as a variety of other sports including football, netball and basketball.

We’ll make sure to keep you updated on the progress and will follow up with photos of the new pitch and MUGA when they are ready. Keep an eye out on our blog, as well as our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for any updates.

Our stunning beach is a home to sea, sand, and a bucketload of fun – and we do everything we can to make sure it looks the part too!

From making sure our coast is green (which has won us a Green Coast Award) to improving our beachside facilities with our beautiful cafe (it’ll be open soon!), we endeavour to make every visit to Silver Bay Beach one to remember.

 

Seaside Award

We were thrilled to discover last week that we’re now the proud owners of a Seaside Award. Presented to us by Keep Wales Tidy as part of the Wales coast Awards, the award recognises Silver Bay Beach for it’s tidy and well-tended to coast and waters. 

We’re incredibly proud to everyone who works hard to make Silver Bay Beach the picturesque beach haven that it is. The Seaside Award recognises those coasts that meet the nationwide standard for the best beaches across the UK, and the flag is a symbol of superb quality, where visitors are guaranteed to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed stretch of coast.’

Take a look at our shiny certificate below!

Silver Bay Seaside Award Anglesey

 

Lesley Jones, Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy stated:

“The Wales Coast Awards play a vital role in the continuing growth of coastal and marine tourism. They act as a mark of excellence, ensuring sites are managed effectively and showcasing our beautiful country to an international audience. Visitors to our award-winning beaches, marinas and boat tour operators can be sure they have arrived at a quality destination.”

Why Silver Bay Is The UK’s Best Beach Holiday Destination

Fantastic news! There’s been a certain buzz around the Silver Bay Holiday Village recently, more specifically in the form of 20,000 bees!

Not so long ago, we announced that we were launching a scheme to #SaveTheBees, an initiative that has been created to protect our flying friends who are synonymous with the English lifestyle and surrounding area of Anglesey.

In recent years, the honey bee has been under constant threat of depopulation, a problem that has been largely credited to a lack of forage and increasing use of pesticides.

However, under the BH&BPA David Bellamy Proposals – hundreds of parks have already got involved to Save Silver Bay Bees, a driving force which has been primarily led through social media involvement and community outreach.

Chris Buckley, Operations Manager at Silver Bay, reinforced the importance of public contribution to helping save the bee’s and the environment: “The scheme was driven by the desire to protect and contribute to the declining bee population nationwide. Almost 350 David Bellamy parks have achieved Honey Bee Friendly status. This means parks have put in the forage plants that bees need to survive. Spreading the word about the bee conservation will be a big focus of the Honey Bee Friendly Parks project this year.”

Save Silver Bay Bees with 5* Hotels

Alongside the huge insurgence of honey bees on Silver Bay grounds, there has also been creations of ‘Bee Hotels’, from small-scale bee B&B’s, to what can only be described as bee condominiums. If you haven’t got on the bee-hotel bandwagon, now’s the time to start. Take a look here for inspiration and advice.

5 Honey Bee Facts

Most of you by now may now be more informed to why we need to save our small, furry friends. But here’s a few honey bee facts to take the sting out of things:

  • Honey has antiseptic properties and was regularly used to dress wounds and burns many years ago.
  • Honey is massively important to pollinators allowing for flowers, vegetables and fruit to grow.
  • The average worker bee lives for just five to six weeks. While she is alive, she will only create a 12th of a teaspoon of honey.
  • Honey bees wiggle or dance to communicate with one another – usually this is to indicate the direction of the food source.
  • The queen bee can live up to five years. The summer months are always the busiest for her, where she will lay 2,500 eggs.

Why not make this the year you take the Honey Bee Friendly pledge? Take a look at www.bbka.org.uk/learn/gardening_for_bees for some great tips and more information here to get you started with helping to Save Silver Bay Bees.

While you’re here, check out our Honeycomb Recipe below.

Honeycomb Recipe

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • ¼ tbsp of cream of tartar

  • Baking sheet
  • Spatula
  • Scales
  • Spoons

Method

  • Put sugar, honey, cream of tartar & butter into a large heavy based pan with 60ml water (mixture should triple in size, so ensure pan is big enough)
  • Simmer until sugar and butter & butter dissolves.
  • Heat to 122 degrees celsius on thermometer, or until a small piece forms a solid ball when dropped in cold water.
  • Remove from heat & beat in bicarbonate of soda
  • Tip out immediately onto baking sheet & leave to cool – do not touch, it’s hot!

  • Store in an airtight container.

Bon Appetit!

 

Update on the Hives

We now have two colonies of honey bees on site called “Heather” and “Willow”, both of which are named after important foraging flowers for the bees. Each colony is progressing well. In fact, they have doubled in size since arriving a few weeks ago and now each hive contains around 16,000-18,000 bees! They enjoy bringing in nectar from flowers and processing this into honey, and one of their favourite flower spots are the heather flowers on the coastal headland at the moment.

Our “Heather” hive is slightly larger than “Willow”, although the queen is shy and hard to spot! The queen of Willow, however, is quite happy to be seen going about her business and laying eggs.

We know some of our owners have been desperate to taste some of our honey, but you’ll have to be patient. All the honey collected now will be winter food stores for the bees themselves as they build up strength for the colder months. It’ll be next year that we’ll see a surplus that we’ll be able to enjoy, too!

Don’t forget our “Visit The Bees” days are held on Tuesdays in August, and we’ll also be hosting bee-related activities at Busy Bayers on Thursday mornings. Book in the spa if you don’t want to miss out!

May-Half-Term-Holiday-Activity-Planner-Silver-Bay-Holiday-Village-Anglesey.-Blog.-1-1280x853.jpg

The sun has finally got his hat on, and with the May half-term quickly making its way towards us, we’ve officially launched the Silver Bay Spring Newsletter!

Jam-packed with fun and fantastic activities for all the family, there’s a tangible sense of excitement in the air as we prepare for the return of our lovely homeowners and their loved ones.

So, to make sure your calendar is chock-a-block with recreation and merry-making, take a look below.

Saving The Honey Bees

This year, we’re focusing on helping out a creature that’s been a part of the English lifestyle for as long as we can remember – the honey bee.

What many don’t realise is that this majestic being has a population that is vastly dwindling, so we’ve decided to make Silver Bay a Honey Bee Friendly Park!

Expert beekeeper, Johnathan Garratt, will be visiting over the summer months to hold important educational bee sessions with the children, and they’ll even have the chance to get up close and personal with the fuzzy, buzzy creatures. There will also be lots of bee-themed activities including candle creation with beeswax and a chance to help us build our very own Bee Hotel!

Best of all, we’ll be welcoming 20,000 new residents this summer in the form of our fuzzy friends! The protection and encouragement of the honey bees will be part of our prestigious David Bellamy award this year. Two hives are being installed closely followed by two bee colonies, so make sure you keep an eye out.

Don’t miss it… because It’ll BEE fantastic!

Welcoming Karan, our new pastry chef

We know how much our lodge owners love something sweet, and to help elevate our stunning Deck House menu to the next level, we’ve welcome talented pastry chef, Karan, to the team.

The Spring Activity Schedule

If you’re a regular Silver Bay holiday-maker, you’ll know that we’re always doing our best to host lots of fun recreational activities for both children and adults. This May, there’s lots on including some brand new activities such as leaf mobiles, nail painting and tattoos, and even frisbee golf.

Things To Do On Anglesey With A Dog

 


silver-bay-holiday-village-anglesey-beach-summer-grass-ocean-1280x853.jpg

Wistful sandy shoreline and sapphire waters, it could only be Silver Bay Beach. Located on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales, this coastal haven is a sanctuary for families seeking a taste of sea air on UK shores. Keep reading to find out why Silver Bay is one of the best beaches in the UK.

Just a short five-minute walk from our award-winning holiday park, Silver Bay Beach is the perfect place to take a romantic walk or have a day of adventure riding the waves in your boat. There really is something for everyone to do. The beach is also close by to RAF Valley, providing the perfect opportunity for plane enthusiasts to witness the Red Arrows in action. Every year a range of events are held on the beach. From the annual fishing competition to the Beach Mudder race, Silver Bay beach is full of life yet spacious enough to feel secluded as you relax.

As well as this, the beach also has a rich history including the mysterious message in a bottle that washed up all the way from Xiamen in China.

Who knows what you’ll discover on a visit to our sandy hideaway? Our beach is also home to plentiful wildlife.

It’s not uncommon to spot a range of aquatic animals swimming in the waters including dolphins, and smaller animals such as frogs. The sky is also awash with beautiful animals including butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies – so there’s always something alluring to witness.

Our coast is also one of the greenest in the country, and we do our best to make sure it’s kept clean and is also well-tended to. In fact, we’ve been doing so well that we’ve been awarded a Green Coast Award!

This prestigious body recognises the best, and greenest, costs around the UK, and we’re honoured to call our tropical heaven a part of it.=As well as admiring our stunning nature, there’s also plenty of natural activities you can be a part of on Silver Bay Beach.

Silver Bay’s activities for children on the beach

There’s little more satisfying than an afternoon spent rock pooling or beach combing, discovering shells, beautiful stones and much more. We also host an array of children’s club activities that include snorkelling, coasteering, and beach safety, as well as Wild Survivors Club where children can learn everything they need to know about rustic life outdoors.=It’s not only humans who are welcome on our beach, so too are man’s best friend! Dogs love Silver Bay Beach just as much as any human, and both man and dog can spend hours wandering this luxury coast with the sand between their toes.

And it’s not hard to find inspiration on our beach, especially if you’re a creative. Whatever your medium, you’ll be sure to find inspiration on our shores. Alice White is just one artist who has already had her creative soul captivated by the sights of our coast.

Over the summer we host a range of beach activities. Alongside our Beach Mudder race, lodge owners will also get access to our annual Sandcastle building competition as well as the chance to purchase tasty snacks from our very own Tiki Shack.

A day at Silver Bay Beach is all about bonding and coming together with both family and friends to create a community. Be it spring, summer, autumn or winter, there’s always someone on our beach to chat with, new friends to make. And it makes for a very special place to live out some of the best days of your family life. Silver Bay Beach isn’t just all about the sand and water, there is also woodland nearby, filled with luscious green trees and places to explore. In fact, a visit to the beach at Silver Bay isn’t complete without a ramble through the woodlands, so don’t miss out.

As well as being the proud owners of a Green Coast Award, we were also presented with a David Bellamy Conservation Award in late 2016.

This award is presented to holiday villages in the UK that have taken great care to create a sustainable environment and enhance and protect nature in Britain. We’ve planted trees, created a wildflower meadow and much more. You can read all about it here. Watersports are also a strong part of Silver Bay Beach life. From canoeing and kayaking to speed boats, everyone is welcome on our waters as long as they practice care and consideration for others. We also have a handy boat park close so that lodge owners can store their vessels with ease.

Furthermore, exploring our beach is only the beginning of the Silver Bay beach experience. There are plenty of wonderful walks to be had around Anglesey that are close by. The Silver Bay woodland lead walkers across to Trearddur Bay, another beautiful part of Anglesey all visitors should have the chance to witness. Staying safe on the beach is all about looking out for one another and knowing your limits. The ocean can be a dangerous place and should be respected. This means not swimming out of your depth, swimming alone, or going too far out. As well as this, people should take extra care to not leave things lying about on the beach. These can become hazards if someone were to trip over them, and that’s without mentioning that our furry, four-legged friends that could also potentially swallow something harmful!
