Moelfre is a lively village with a strong maritime history. Tradespeople were attracted to this picturesque village, but particularly those relating to maritime trades and business. Today, where many fishermen are no longer active on the water, you can still see the lovely sight of boats and lobster pots upturned on the pretty pebble beach in the centre of the village.
If you walk along the coastal path from the centre you’ll arrive at the Seawatch Centre with it’s striking memorial sculpture to Dic Evans, the long-serving gold medal awarded coxswain with the Moelfre Lifeboat station.
Due to the terrible shipwrecks of the Royal Charter and the Hindlea where so many lost their lives, the Lifeboat Station beats at the heart of this village with many villagers volunteering their services to this vital organisation.
There are some interesting events in the year. Over 8000 people descend on the village in August to the Moelfre Lifeboat day. This is a brilliant day with the lifeboat crew conducting rescues on the water and then coming to take part in a huge water fight on the beach. Music plays in the car park which is temporarily turned into a mini fairground and there are plenty of interesting food and trade stalls.
