The North Wales region
Anglesey is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax, enjoy the tranquility and lose yourself in the island's winding lanes or on its spectacular coast, its beautiful sandy beaches and hidden rocky coves.
Anglesey is perfect for the active holidaymaker - enjoy cycling, golf, walking, fishing (sea or coarse), horse riding, watersports, rockpooling, adventure sports and even motor sports! Or relax and do as little as you want on beautiful quiet blue flag beaches, or just enjoy the magnificent views of the stunning coastline, countryside and nearby mountains of Snowdonia. Add Anglesey's unparalleled ancient history in a variety of heritage sites, museums and galleries, offering a diverse and fascinating insight into the historical and cultural heritage of the island.
Anglesey boasts a wide selection of places to eat and drink - award-winning restaurants, fabulous food shops, beach-front cafés, cosy country pubs - and many of them featuring local produce like lamb, beef and cheeses from Anglesey farms, or delicious seafood like mussels, lobster, fish and oysters from around the beautiful and rich coast.
Malltraeth is a small village in the southwest of Anglesey. We have two friendly pubs at either end of the High Street, and a twee village store/fish & chip shop between them, selling essentials such as bread, milk, logs etc. Located at the end of a large bay, the village has some spectacular views across the sands looking over Newborough Forest and the mountains of Snowdonia beyond. Malltraeth Marsh is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and also includes an RSPB reserve - the internationally renowned naturalist artist, Charles Tunnicliffe was resident for 32 years in Malltraeth and you will likely have seen his paintings in the many Ladybird books which he illustrated.
Heading into Malltraeth from the south, you may notice the wild Welsh ponies roaming around Malltraeth Pool before the breathtaking views down Malltraeth Bay hit you as you enter the village. Look the other way, and you will see the arches of the viaduct crossing the marshes in the distance.
An early 19th Century 'Cob' (a type of dam) around one mile long runs from the village to Newborough Forest, and forms part of the Anglesey Coastal Path and the Lon Las Cefni cycle track,
At low tide, a walk across Malltraeth Bay leads to Llanddwyn Island, where the romantic ruins of the 16th Century church of St. Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers (the Welsh St Valentine) can be visited. The island also has Llanddwyn lighthouse, which was a prominent location for the filming of the Demi Moore 2006 movie, Half Light.
Malltraeth Bay is certainly a beautiful part of Anglesey. When Prince William and Kate lived on the island whilst William was stationed at RAF Valley, they rented a farmhouse in the grounds of Bodorgan Hall, just a short walk away from the bay.
We are very lucky to have many unspoiled sandy beaches within just a few miles of Malltraeth. The vast expanse of the Blue Flag Newborough/Llanddwyn beach runs along the lush 2,000 acre forest and sand dunes of Newborough Warren, popular for kitesurfing, family beach time, walking and romantics! Further north of Malltraeth, you soon reach the beaches of Aberffraw, Trecastell, Nobla, Cable Bay, Broad and Rhosneiger.
