The most northerly town in Wales, set on the north coast of Anglesey, Amlwch is a popular spot for visitors to the area. Despite this coastal town not having a beach, it does instead boast striking coastal cliffs which stand as one of the highlights of the Anglesey Coastal Path that surrounds the island. On a clear day, you can see as far as the Isle of Man or even the Lake District.
Like most parts of Anglesey, Amlwch is a town steeped in history, with former copper mine Parys Mountain once standing as the biggest in the world. At the peak of the industry, it’s believed Amlwch held a record of public house to person ratio, with one pub for every four people.
Though not quite as many pubs are open nowadays, Amlwch is still home to an array of pubs, perfect for a drink after taking a walk or cycle along the Copper Trail Cycle Route, a path which takes you to the captivating Parys Mountain.
A golfing fan? Bull Bay Golf Club is the ideal place to visit. This 18 hole championship course also holds stunning views of Anglesey and the Snowdonia Mountains. Or, if you’re a fan of architecture, take a walk to see the Watch Tower, or striking reinforced concrete Catholic Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea and St Winefride.
