The Isle of Anglesey, just off the coast of north Wales, is known for its many delightful small towns. Amlwch, on the Isle’s north tip provides a relaxing outdoor break with easy access to wonderful coastal scenery, county walks and cycling trails.
As the most northerly town in Wales, Amlwch enjoys a prime location atop coastal cliffs and although there is no beach here, the scenic vista afforded by this cliff-top setting more than makes up for that. The peaceful harbour is perfect for a gentle, relaxing stroll, whilst a more strenuous walk can be enjoyed along the coastal path between Amlwch Port and Point Lynas.
For an activity of a much less energetic nature, Amlwch is a great location for a spot of fishing, one of the most popular pastimes on the island and there is a golf course nearby. In town you’ll find plenty of shops and a good selection of cafes and pubs.
In addition to Amlwch’s fine coastal setting, the town is also just 20 miles away from the popular town of Holyhead. The largest town on the Isle of Anglesey, Holyhead has a bustling centre, full of interesting shops, and is home to a number of attractions. One of the most popular of these is the Holyhead Maritime Museum, a great day out for all the family, this museum has a number of exhibits all housed within the oldest lifeboat station in Wales.
With its delightful coastal setting and close proximity to many attractions, Amlwch is a splendid location for enjoying a holiday on the Isle of Anglesey. For self catering accommodation in the area, search for cottages in Amlwch.
