Cemaes Bay

The most northerly village in Wales, Cemaes is set on Anglesey’s wildest and most unspoilt stretch of coastline, most of which is now cared for by the National Trust.

Originally a fishing village, it became a centre for shipbuilding and exporting marble and limestone, used to build many of Liverpool’s buildings.

Maritime activity is at the old stone pier where boat trips to Skerries Lighthouse and the Isle of Man can be arranged with local boat owners.

At the eastern entrance to the bay is Llanadrig and St Patrick’s Church and cave, where it is said Patrick set off to Ireland from.

Further east is Dinas Gynfor prehistoric hill fort and the atmospheric small port of Llanlleiana from where China clay was once exported.

A major attraction is the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station which has been generating electricity since 1971 and has a visitor centre which is open daily and is free of charge.
