Things to do / Places to Visit nearby
Benllech Beach (Blue Flag) – Situated on the east coast of Anglesey Benllech is one of the most popular of the island’s holiday villages. Set in a crescent-shaped bay, its pleasant beach of fine golden sand and clear blue waters are exceptionally safe for bathing and paddling.
Moelfre Beach – Moelfre is quite a pretty little pebble beach overlooked by the village. The bay is very sheltered and the slipway makes it a popular spot for launching boats.
Lligwy Beach – Wide, sandy beach located just around the corner from the village of Moelfre. The beach of Traeth Lligwy is backed by low sand dunes giving it a wild, open feel, which is exactly what it is.
Walks on Mynydd Bodafon – Mynydd Bodafon (Bodafon Mountain) is a small collection of peaks including the Arwydd (The Sign or signal) which is the highest point on the island of Anglesey

Absolutely everything. The apartment was exceptional. Cleanliness was as you would expect from a 5* property, everything in place due to Covid plenty of cutlery, crockery, etc. The view from the apartment was outstanding looking down onto the beach and seeing the snow on the mountains in the background. Plenty of takeaway eateries within a couple of minutes walk and also Tesco express nearly on the doorstep. Close to so many beaches for walks. Can’t wait to book again.
We had a great stay at the apartment. It was well equipped with everything you might possibly need for a holiday. The apartment is very well decorated and the views from the balcony are absolutely fantastic! The beach is about a ten minute walk downhill, walking back with a toddler and a small child wasn’t as easy! Benllech beach is lovely, well worth the visit.
Recently had a midweek break here and was like a home from home. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Would have benefited with a table in the centre of the living area. Balcony had superb views. If I have one small issue, it is that availability isn’t until 4pm. Would definitely go again!
Wow what a view! Clean, comfortable, fantastic location with the best view in Anglesey. Benllech has everything for a great family holiday. The owners Keith and Carole have thought of everything, with beautiful artwork throughout. Great restaurants, the Beachcomber Bar & Grill was our favourite (book before you go) it’s very popular especially in the school holidays. Excellent holiday, we hope to return very soon. Thanks Coastal Holidays for your efficient service, we will book with you again. x
Having stayed in many holiday lets in Benllech, this was one of the best. Very well equipped, comfortable and convenient for the beach,shops and restaurants. The balcony is an added bonus although there is noise from the main road in front but it didn’t disturb us. The only criticism is that it’s awkward to get to the window in the small bedroom as you have to climb on the bed or move the bedside table. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
We needed a last minute family break. Came upon the apartment suddenly. It was just the right one that we needed in every way even the kids loved it so much . For us it was a second home just a few minutes walk from the beach. Will definitely like to come back here and certainly recommend it for anyone. 6* indeed.
We had a fantastic weekend in Anglesey helped by two brilliant days of sunshine and spent most of our time walking on the coastal paths. However if the weather had been poor I don’t think we could have had a more comfortable and well appointed apartment which was exactly as described but with an even better view over the bay at Benllech.
Stayed in this apartment for a week in May 2015 with my mum. Apartment was clean, spacious, comfortable and warm – important after windy walks along the coast! The view from the apartment was amazing, especially with the changing sky it could look so different depending how the weather was. The apartment was well equipped with everything you need for self catering as we ate in most nights. It had two double bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a parking space and a Tesco Express next door in case you run out of anything! We could access all the island from the apartment, think it took us 30-40 minutes to get to South Stack which was the other end of the Island so a good base to explore Angelsey from. Would recommend to others and would stay here again it truly was a home from home.
“We stayed for 5 nights in September with two young children and had a fantastic time. The apartment was like home from home, both adults said you could comfortably live there! The location is perfect with stunning views across the bay, you are very close to local amenities and its a great base for exploring the rest of the island. We hope to return”
“This beautiful apartment fitted our needs absolutely. The views over the beach around to Red Warf and beyond were stunning too. All that was provided in the apartment was of high quality and the personal touches such as walking guides and milk and a Bara Brith on our arrival were much appreciated. We did have problems with the Satellite TV signal but I know from experience that is often a problem in the area and it certainly didn’t bother us.
We would always look to book with you again when in this area. I was on an organised Painting Holiday and after 5 hours of concentration and fresh air each day, to come back to the apartment was much appreciated.
