Moelfre North Beach

Moelfre is lucky enough to have two beaches, the south beach nearer to the village of Moelfre, then the North beach. This beach is relatively small and comprises of large round pebbles.

This beach is especially pretty when the tide is in, although can be quite busy with people walking along the Coastal Path. When the tide is out its great to explore the rock pools.

Carry on walking past the Lifeboat station and The North beach is to the left, and if you carry on round to the right you will come across the sloping rocks which are very popular for shore fishing.

The Anglesey Coasta Path runs through Moelfre

Anglesey Coastal Path

Moelfre headland is part of the Anglesey coastal path which in total is about 125 miles of mainly coastal path around Anglesey.

You can carry on over the beach heading in a northerly direction along the cliff tops which Welsh weatherman Derek Brockway did on his program “weatherman walking.”

Eventually you come to a memorial plaque to the site of the “Golden wreck” the Royal Charter which sank in 1859 with the loss of 450 men, women and children. The Royal Charter was carrying 10 tonne’s of gold.

If you travel from the village up the hill and round to the right of the headland along a coastal path you will see the Moelfre Sea Watch Centre on the left.

You will also see a statue to lifeboat man Richard ‘Dic’ Evans past and the new Moelfre lifeboat station on your right.

This was built in 2014 to accommodate the new lifeboat. The lifeboat station is normally open to the public where adults and children alike can enjoy the sight of this new huge lifeboat in it’s newly built home.

Fishing of the rocks at Moelfre on Anglesey

Fishing at Moelfre

The rocks at Moelfre headland is a popular spot for some fishing.

During the summer this a great place to catch Mackerel and Pollock.

The island directly in front of this headland is Ynys Moelfre (Moelfre Island), popular with seabirds like Gannets, Terns and Fulmar, if your lucky you may see the Grey seals.


There are no facilities or toilets near this beach, but there are some seats on the headland to admire the amazing views. The view from here is beautiful you can see across to Puffin Island and the Great Orme.
