The Grandkids and I had the best time, unfortunately they beat me. However I returned the following week and using insider knowledge beat the opposition.

I work in the field of Structural Engineering for the Marine environment and was born and raised in Beaumaris. Who on earth blessed this design? Heavily conservative over design with ZERO consideration for the historical image preservation of the Pier sub and super structure The...More

Beaumaris pier is nothing special, but always worth a walk to the end. We were also treated to seeing a lifeboat launch, as they had a callout as soon as we arrived.

We always come here for crab fishing! Always fun and kills a couple of hours! Can get some fish for crabbing at the lifeboat station or the butchers near the spar. Always good fun and always get a catch!

Always have a walk on the pier when I'm in the town. Nice views & photography opportunities. Loads of kids crabbing - I wonder how many dozen times some have been caught!

How does one review a pier?! There are lovely views across the Straits. There's shelter at the end in which one can eat fish and chips. And it's great for crabbing. Romantic at night - light at the end of the pier is all rather...More

This pier is very short but worth a view there’s some shelters at the end very useful when it’s windy.
