North West Anglesey

The north-west coastline of Anglesey is studded with coves, caves, beaches and rock pools. The Anglesey coastal path is close by and will lead you off on your own journey of discovery. Visit Church Bay, where the pebbled beach stretches for miles. Porth Trwyn (known locally as Borthwen Beach) is a quiet haven with sand at low tide and rock pools. Fydlyn beach sits sheltered by the rocky islets of Ynys y Fydlyn and will reward you with views to sea and the Skerries lighthouse. Watch out for grey seals on Craig yr Iwrch, porpoises and dolphins too. Cemlyn Nature Reserve is a wild retreat for walkers and bird watchers. Cemaes Bay, the most northerly village in Wales, has a great little seaside village feel and there are plenty of cafes and little places to find treats.

Further along towards Holyhead is Porth Tywyn Mawr which stretches for miles with sand dunes to scramble along and sparkling water for water sports enthusiasts to enjoy. At South Stack, our most westerly lighthouse warns ships of the rugged coastline. Photographers will be in heaven as the scenery is spectacular.

A step away from the shores of Anglesey are inland gems. Visit Llynnon Mill, built in 1775, the only working windmill in Wales also home to two reconstructed roundhouses. Llyn Alaw is great for walking and exploring. The north western side of Anglesey holds much to be admired and many places, as we know, are so quiet you will wonder if anyone else has discovered them!
