Moelfre, Anglesey
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.

Village Centre

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.
Attractions

Seawatch Centre: Moelfre is renowned for it's maritime traditions and particularly the life saving exploits of the life boat crews. The village's seafaring story is told at the Seawatch Centre a short walk around the headland from the central beach. A bronze statue of its most famous son, Coxswain Dic Evans, stands proudly on the bank overlooking the Sea Watch Centre and Life Boat House. At the lifeboat centre, you can learn about the bravery of Mr Evans who was awarded two gold medals for saving the lives of the crews of two ships. You may also learn about the wonderful array of maritime wildlife to be found in the coastal waters of Anglesey.
Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities

There is no shortage of walks on the Isle of Anglesey and Moelfre is no exception. Head north from Moelfre to find the family friendly beach of Lligwy Bay, alternatively head south round the headlands for Traeth Bychan and the popular sandy beaches of Benllech and Red Wharf Bay.

History

Moelfre gives the opportunity to combine an interest in history with a pastime of walking. A short walk from Moelfre leads to both a splendid Neolithic Burial Chamber, and a remarkable example of a late Roman settlement.
The Lligwy Burial Chamber is to be found in a field close to the town. The most striking feature of the burial chamber is the massive capstone, estimated to weigh some 25 tonnes.
Close by is the Din Lligwy Ancient Village. If you are visiting Anglesey and you are able to visit just one archaeological site then I would have to recommend that you visited Din Lligwy. It is a well-preserved example of the type of settlement built by the native population of Anglesey during the latter part of the Roman occupation of Wales. However, the origins of the settlement may well go back into the Iron Age.
