Holyhead Breakwater is located on the Isle of
Anglesey, North Wales. It lies due east of Holyhead Mountain, and
shields the harbour and port of Holyhead from the Irish Sea. The
breakwater is 1.5 miles in length and holds a lighthouse at the eastern
end to warn shipping as they approach the harbour. Holyhead is a 24
hour, deep water port, and is one of the main ferry terminals for
Ireland. The Port of Holyhead is operated by Stena Line Ports Ltd, who
are the statutory Harbour Authority.
Holyhead Harbour was developed by the Chester and Holyhead Railway
Company for its services to Ireland. Holyhead Sailing Club is based
within the protection of Holyhead Breakwater with over 600 members and
moorings for up to 170 boats. Holyhead Marina also sits within the
protection of Holyhead Breakwater.
