Church Bay is a tiny village on the northwest coast of the Isle of Anglesey, around 13 miles north of Holyhead and 26 miles northwest of the bridge which connects the island to the mainland. The village is named after the Church of St Rhuddlad, which soars above a sweeping, sandy bay. Church Bay holiday cottages are perfectly positioned for exploring the island. Within a few miles of the village, you will discover secluded, rocky coves, ancient fishing villages and wonderfully unspoiled countryside, scattered with ruined castles and historic gardens.
Church Bay is a sand and pebble beach framed by craggy headlands and rockpools, and backed by towering cliffs. It is a glorious spot for fishing, surfing, swimming and sandcastle-building, and also happens to be home to one of Anglesey’s most famous restaurants, the Lobster Pot. Book a table well in advance at this renowned establishment, where the owner can often be seen rowing into the bay to collect fresh lobster and shellfish. The Anglesey Coast Path heads north to Ynys Y Fydlan and Carmel Head, and south to Holyhead and Penrhos. Look out for oyster catchers, choughs and gannets as you amble over dramatic clifftops, with breathtaking views across the sea.
