Moelfre is a harbour village located on the north east coast of Anglesey, between the towns of Amlwch to the north and Benllech to the south. The pleasant harbour sits between two rock headlands. The pebble beach is popular with families as children splash in the waters and Dads launch the latest sea-kayak, or set out on a fishing trip. Visitors to the town enter from the A5025 via the A5108 and there is a free parking opportunity at the top of the hill a few hundred yards from the sea front. The car park offers toilet facilities. On leaving the car park follow the footpath that runs between the old cottages to the sea front.
The houses are huddled on the hillside around the small harbour. A few cottages sit on the foreshore bravely facing the Irish Sea. Others, rather more wisely, are built on higher ground. A cafe, pub and restaurant wait optimistically for trade, while fishing boats, high and dry, await time, tide and the fisherman. There is limited parking on the seafront at the pay and display car park. A sea front kiosk offers al fresco snacks, refreshments and ice creams. The old cottages lining the small harbour appear to have been renovated for use as holiday cottages. A tourist information board describes local footpaths and places of interest including the location of the Din Lligwy Roman remains and the Lligwy Burial Chamber, a Neolithic tomb.
