Situated on the North Eastern corner of Anglesey, Amlwch is a small, peaceful town with a long history of working traditions. The town grew with the development of copper mining on nearby Mynydd Parys (Parys Mountain), and was once the world's most productive Copper Mine. In its mining heyday, when it was one of Anglesey's busiest ports, it was home to 6,000 people who supported an amazing 1,025 ale houses!
Today, the old harbour at Amlwch Port is well worth a visit, exhibiting memorabilia from Amlwch's shipbuilding and mining days. Pick up a Heritage Trail leaflet for details of the self-guided walk around Parys Mountain (approximately 2 miles from the Port) amid amazing open cast remains, often likened to a lunar landscape.
Fishing is popular in the area and many charter boats sail from Amlwch Port. Nearby is the hamlet of Bull Bay with its 18 hole golf course with spectacular views across the bay to the Irish sea. On a clear day you can see the Isle of Man.
