Cemaes harbour is a stone harbour in Cemaes Bay in the north of Anglesey, North Wales. The bay itself is protected by two rock headlands of Trwyn y Penrhyn and Trwyn y Parc, but after a severe storm in 1828, it was felt that a new pier should be built. Ships up to 400 tons were built in Cemaes during the 19th Century and the harbour trade included coal imports and exports of limestone, corn, marble, bricks, lime and ocre. The successful mining activities on nearby Parys Mountain provided an added incentive to extend the harbour and the new harbour was completed in 1835. Today the pier is still the centre of the community harbouring both leisure craft and working fishing boats. This is reflected in the harbour furniture where lobster pots are stacked alongside benches where tourists sit to eat their fish and chips.
