So much to see and do
Stay in one of our North East Anglesey Holiday Cottages – beach lovers and walkers will be in heaven here. This is the area to come to if you love wandering along the shoreline or sitting on a beach. And if you love exploring the coastal area with your trusted four legged friends.
Llanddona to Amlwch
The stretch of coastline from Llanddona up to the old port of Amlwch is home to miles of beaches and there’s plenty to explore. Port Lynas, our North Easterly lighthouse where porpoises jump with delight, and The Copper Kingdom are great places to visit. Wander round Mynydd Parys (Parys Mountain) and learn all its history. From bronze age mining starting around 1690 BC, right up to its peak in the 18th century and its demise in 1830. Stand still and look around you, it is quite an eerie place to visit but equally stunning in its structure.
Red Wharf Bay
Llanddona and Red Wharf Bay are two areas of the same beach. Look to your left and you will see Red Wharf Bay, Benllech and Moelfre beyond. Set off for the day and enjoy this section of the Anglesey Coastal Path on foot. It’s an easy walk along the shoreline with The Old Boathouse, The Ship and Tavern on the Bay to nourish you en route. Reach Moelfre and visit the Seawatch Centre and RNLI station to learn all about Coxswain Richard “Dic” Evans and our sea faring past. Then head onto Ann’s Pantry – a delight for all scone lovers! For those based in Llanddona, return to your local pub, Owain Glyn Dwr. Here delicious home-cooked food and the perfect pint await you.
Penmon and Beaumaris
Alternatively, head off South East from Llanddona and you will discover the ancient coastal site of Penmon. The elegant town of Beaumaris is equally accessible along the Anglesey Coastal Path. For those who would prefer to get somewhere with a bit more speed, then it is just a 15 minute to drive to either Beaumaris or to Penmon Lighthouse!
If you have a hankering for historic sites, the Iron Age and Roman hill fort of Bwrdd Arthur (meaning “Arthur’s Table”) is located north of Llanddona. This is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest designated for its botanical interest. It is no wonder the Massey sisters had so much inspiration to draw upon for their botanical studies. Nestled quietly in the village of Llanddona is the lovely church of St Dona’s which dates from 610, although the present building was built in 1873. And for those with a little more imagination, there is much to be learnt about the famous witches of Llanddona!
