Anglesey is linked to mainland Wales by two historic bridges and is easily accessible by fast route via the A55. More recently, RAF valley are now undertaking commercial flights to and from Cardiff, making the island even more widely accessible.
The island has fantastic beaches, and an abundance of varied wildlife. Discover and enjoy coastal walks, secret coves, water sports, local sea and lake fishing, golf and stunning sea and mountain views. Explore a little further afield and the Island offers something for everybody; Ancient Sites, Historic Castles, RSPB and Nature Reserves, the Sea Zoo, Ty Croes Racing Circuit and other attractions and also easy access by car to the inspiring Snowdonia National Park.
Trearddur Bay is an increasingly popular holiday destination on Anglesey, an island just off the coast of North Wales. Despite this, the rugged beauty of the coastline remains largely untouched, with peaceful coves and smaller beaches nestled amongst the cliffs, providing a different landscape to the two main bays that our little village is, perhaps, best known for.
Trearddur Bay itself and Porth Dafarch beach have both been awarded the coveted ‘Blue Flag’ award again in 2021, which is something we are very proud of. Assessed against multiple criteria, including cleanliness and water quality, both beaches offer something different. If you require a ‘traditional’ beach holiday, with sea, sand and relaxation (we can’t promise sun!) then the main beach in Trearddur Bay has the stretches of golden sand that will suit. If you are looking for rock pools and a wilder scenery, Porth Dafarch is a few miles up the road, and a good base to try your hand at some adventure activities from. We are very lucky to have a wealth of experienced activity providers that can introduce you to coasteering, sea kayaking, rock climbing and paddle boarding, enabling you to make incredible memories, all while allowing you to view Anglesey from a different perspective.
After you’ve worked up an appetite, we have a number of lovely places to eat in and around Trearddur Bay. Whether it’s a laid back coffee and cake or a fine dining experience that you are looking for, the village has it all – we even have a bubble tea café!
Our little seaside village has everything you need to have a wonderful holiday, from convenience shops for your morning newspaper, bread and milk, to restaurants and adventure activities. We are really proud of what we have to offer, so why not come and experience it for yourself?!
The island has a low rolling, undulating landscape with frequent rocky outcrops and has an exceptionally mild climate as adverse weather fronts normally pass over the island unloading only when they reach the Snowdonia mountain ranges. It does rain on occasions of course and the island also gets its share of windy weather but frankly, this enhances the experience of island life with dramatic crashing seas and blown spume - great for wild walks.
Sports and Activities
Water sports, sea, river & lake fishing, bathing, diving, coasteering and sailing are the main activities in the summer months and golfers will enjoy the Holyhead Golf Club's 18 hole course and other courses on the island posing different challenges. It's a great place for nature lovers too with excellent bird watching, lots of rock pools to explore and an excellent coastal path. Facilities for squash and horse riding along with Clay Shooting and a notable Motor Racing Circuit are also available locally.
Anglesey is surprisingly easy to reach from anywhere in Europe by fast trunk road, train, air or ferry. Away from the A55, life is peaceful and time slows down - the perfect place in which to rediscover tranquillity and nature.
The motorway network and the A55 road along the North Wales coast offers dual carriageway access right across the island or if you are travelling from the south you may prefer the A5 that takes you through the mountains of North Wales.
Holyhead is the gateway to Ireland and Stena Line offers fast services to Dublin or more leisurely crossings in superbly equipped modern boats.
Bangor and Holyhead are on the main rail route to Ireland with connections and services from most parts of the UK.
Manchester Airport is established as an important access point for the UK. It offers easy access to North Wales from most parts of Europe, USA and beyond with good connections by rail and road. Alternatively, London and Cardiff are also well connected whether you choose to drive or come by train.
RAF Valley has facilities for landing private aircraft, and is currently operating commercial flights to and from Cardiff.
A network of coach services from most parts of the UK are available and once on the island there is a network of local services that allows you to travel around at your leisure.
