The beach has many enticing rock pools both in and off shore, full of sea life for children to discover. The Anglesey Coastal Path meanders along the rocky headland surrounding the cove, offering some great views and opportunities for walks in the dramatic scenery which surrounds it.

The cove is a popular spot for watersports, particularly windsurfing, surfing, canoeing, sailing and jet skiing. A beach warden operates from Easter to September. Facilities are limited to toilets but there is disabled access and baby changing.

Porth Dafarch is owned by the National Trust.
