Things to do in Llangefni

Things to do in Llangefni

Llangefni is a commercial and farming town near the centre of Anglesey and once hosted the largest cattle market on the island. Llangefni is also the county town and administrative centre of the Isle of Anglesey. On the outskirts of Llangefni is Red Wharf Bay, Pentraeth, a sandy beach stretching for 2.5 miles. The beach stretches from Castell Mawr on the Northern Shore to Bwrdd Arthur in the South. 

Further along the cost is Benllech Beach, one of the most popular beaches, with golden sands and clear blue waters.  Excellent disabled facilities with access for both prams and disabled visitors.  Pay and display parking available, beach wardens from late may until early September. 

North of Benllech Beach is Traeth Lligwy, a shallow sandy beach good for kids’ paddling and rockpool exploring, plus café for local ice cream. 

Head to Moelfre to hear about the history of Moelfre Lifeboat – awarded no less than 37 RNLI medals. And you can visit the memorial to Coxwain Richard ‘Dic’ Evans, as well as the permanent exhibition at Moelfre’s Seawatch Centre – one of Anglesey’s most visited sites. Dic was one of only a few R.N.L.I lifeboat members to be awarded the Gold Medal twice.  He was part of the rescue team on two difficult rescues.

Navigate all 400 steps to the South Stack Lighthouse, Holyhead – shining its lights since 1809. The surrounding area is an RSPB Nature Reserve and you can get a good look at the Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills from Ellin’s Tower. 

Newborough Beach (also known as Traeth Llanddwyn) is a 3½ mile long sandy beach reaching from Llanddwyn Island to Abermenai Point south of Llangefni.  Parking is available at Newborough Forest and offers views of Snowdonia and can be reachs by turning off the A4080 in Newborough village along Llys Rhosyr, which leads to a toll road.  Access to the beach includes a short walk over the dunes.  There are dog restrictions between April 1st and 30th September.
