Amlwch Beach

Visit Amlwch Beach

Explore the harbour, visit the lighthouse and take in the history of the region. The Almwch area is full of industrial heritage and is refered to as the ‘Copper Kingdom‘, as it was once home to the largest copper mine in the world.

Amlwch is the most northerly town in Wales and has breathtaking views in all directions. This is a great place for a relaxing weekend away in a holiday cottage.

At low tide there is a tiny beach, at the end of the long creek, which is good for a paddle on a warm day.

This part of the North Wales coast is ideal for sea fishing and hiking the Anglesey Coastal Path. If you head to the coastguard station, you can follow the path towards the Point Lynas Lighthouse or further on to Moelfre and Red Wharf Bay.
