The village of Benllech lies on the east coast of the Isle of Anglesey, in North Wales. Its beautiful beach has helped to make self-catering holidays in Benllech popular, with a long stretch of golden sand looking across the waves towards the Great Orme and Penmon Point. Windsurfing, swimming and sea-fishing are popular activities, as well as exploring the maze of rockpools which is revealed at low tide. Running right through the village, the Anglesey Coast Path is part of the national Wales Coast Path and covers 124 miles of towering cliffs, sweeping, sandy bays and rocky coves. Benllech is a fairly large place by the island’s standards, with a scattering of graceful churches, a bowling green and a tennis court. In the village centre, a stroll away from holiday cottages in Benllech, there are groceries, a pharmacy and a library.
There are also some great places to eat and drink, including Bradley’s and The Bay Café – both good options for a coffee, breakfast or lunch. The Benllech on Beach Road is a cosy pub serving a selection of local ales, and the Beachcombe Bar and Grill is known for its delicious cocktails and pizzas. Nearby, the Pebble Bistro has a terrace overlooking the beach, where you can enjoy excellent food, prepared with fresh, local ingredients. A holiday cottage in Benllech is a popular choice for visitors who want to discover the captivating scenery of the Isle of Anglesey. Within a few miles of the village, Neolithic sites and magnificent castles await discovery. The island’s unspoiled countryside is dotted with charming resorts and market towns, such as Beaumaris and Holyhead. The historic city of Bangor is a half-hour drive away, and Snowdonia National Park is easily close enough for day trips.
