We had a lovely trip down Beaumaris pier where the children caught lots of crabs. There are covered benches for seating and admiring the views!

We visited the castle in the morning and had no plans for the afternoon. My son was getting a bit bored so i took him to see the lifeboat. Whilst there i noticed the pier was full of people who looked to be having great fun (lots of happy squeals and dancing children)
The helpful man in the RNLI shop kitted us out with what we needed (at less than £5) and off we went on the short walk to the pier.
Everyone we spoke to on the pier was helpful and gave us lots of tips to get a good haul of crabs.
We had a really good afternoon and for less than £5!

There are numerous boat and fishing trips leaving from the pier.
The pier is clean with good access for wheelchairs and prams. Lots of benches to enjoy the lovely views.
Just as we were leaving the RNLI boat was testing out the engines so we got to see the boat leaving which was another first.
Afterwards we got fish and chips from a nearby chip shop which rounded the afternoon of nicely.

Nearby there are toilets, a small outdoor pool, shops and ice cream sellers. I wouldn't recommend the ice creams near the toilets sold from a mobile bike and cart - they didn't have much flavour.

A great afternoon out or young and old alike.

The pier was very busy with famalies crabbing, queueing for the boats and relaxing on the seating available. Watching the yatchsmen preparing their craft for sailing you do get a vantage point on the pier. Very clean and well maintained.
