Amlwch HarbourAmlwch is situated on the north eastern corner of Anglesey. A small town with a long history of working traditions, it offers visitors a wide range of activities. A favourite walk is along the coast from Point Lynas to Amlwch Port where copper was exported all over the world. Visitors can also explore the industrial workings of Parys Mountain itself or visit the local railway museum. Amlwch Industrial Heritage Trust can be contacted on +44 1407 832277 for more information.

Fishing and golf are popular pastimes across Anglesey and visitors to Amlwch do not have to travel far to play golf at the Bull Bay golf club or fish at various locations. Amlwch has a range of local bars and shops and hosts a local market every Friday.

Amlwch is some fifteen miles from Holyhead and the same distance from Llangefni. Both these towns are well worth a visit to those with a historical interest and people wanting to flavour the atmosphere of a real Welsh town.

Visitors may be interested to know that in 1999 Anglesey received 22 awards for its beaches from the Tidy Britain Group who present awards based on cleanliness, safety and water standards of each beach. In addition two beaches, Trearddur Bay and Porth Dafarch received the European Blue Flag award. Many of the beaches are relatively quite allowing visitors to relax and unwind.

From Holyhead, ferries operate to Dublin with the superfast ferry only taking 99 minutes to complete the single journey. A day trip to sample the wonderful Dublin is easily achievable and is far cheaper that you think.

History buffs will be well pleased to know Anglesey has a number of both historic and prehistoric sites close-by, including burial chambers at Barcloddiad Yr Gawres and a church in the sea at Porth Cwyfan! Llys Rhosyr, the site of one of the most powerful and charismatic Welsh mediaeval princes has been discovered near the village of Newborough, on the South Western corner of the island.
