Directions to the right place:

From Valley, turn off the A5 onto the A5025 towards Llanfachraeth, Llanfaethlu and Amlwch (I kid you not). About 1/2 mile after Llanfachraeth, turn L. Follow this for about 1 1/2 miles, turning L at the T jn, then straight on at the next T jn 1/2mile further on, eventually arriving at Penrhyn (a farm & camp site). OS Ref: 287839

How the winds work:

Works in W - S winds.

N would be good, but you may struggle a little getting off the beach & back in.
