Before launching your craft it is vitally important for your own personal safety and the safety of others that you take the time to read carefully the Rules & Regulations as set out by Gwynedd Council. Please adhere to these rules and regulations at all time.
Bull Bay is located on the North east coast of Anglesey, between the villages of Amlwch & Cemaes Bay. Launching from here gives easy access to the rugged north and eastern coastline, with noteable features to explore including Middle Mouse & East Mouse islands, The Brickworks and Puffin Island.
Access to the water here is via a good, level concrete slipway (pic. 1) onto a sand/pebble surface. You should be safe to launch here with either 2wd or 4wd, but it is your responsibility to check the firmness of the surface before deciding to drive off the slipway onto the beach surface. If you are skiing with company, then launching by hand is possibly a better option.
* For 2018 onwards, there will be a key locked bollard system in place at this location. Key numbers will be limited & available by application & payment of a (partially refundable) fee. Fees and application contact details will be updated, as soon as we have them. *
As you can see in (pic. 1) access to the open water is slightly hampered by large rock outcrops to the right and left of the slipway area. Easy to see at low or dropping tide….but do please keep them in mind as the tide rises so you don’t collide with them.
Parking (pic. 2) is provided just before you reach the slipway, on the right hand side.
*The Bull Bay Hotel has now closed and at present there is extra parking available on the vacated site, which is suitable for vehicles and trailers. Anglesey Council are looking into improving parking availability here & we will update as more information becomes available*
