Holy Island, Anglesey

I'm off to Anglesey in a couple of weeks, staying near South Stack.
I've found a couple of places to trailer launch on Holy Island, Trearddur Bay and Borth Wen. I don't particularly want to drive to far but any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
Also any recommendations for pubs, cafés and restaurants, places to visit by sib, walking or car would be great.
Thanks, Steve

Local Airbnb hosts are the best resource for that. Their lives revolve around catering to first time visitors . Best of all you can message any host with these questions with zero obligations .

The walk from south stack to Holyhead harbour is well worth the effort.

There’s a slip a Cemaes into the harbour. Not used it but looks easy enough. That’ll give you access to the skerries etc.

Cemaes Bay appears to be a good call. Gives the opportunity to launch north & south of the island depending upon the wind direction.

Borth Wen & Treaddur Bay are both good places to launch, both sheltered bays, and great for exploring around South Stack and North Stack, some great sea caves to visit in the area there's a public slip at holyhead marina that might be worth a go. I think you will need to register with Anglesey County Council to launch at any of the public slips on the island, worth reading the attached before arriving........

Thanks Chris, registered last week which I begrudge a little, but spread over a couple of weeks it's not to bad. What I was a bit shocked at was the £20 to use the slip a Trearddur Bay!!!!!
Any idea what it costs at Borth Wen?

Borth Wen is Rhoscolyn on the councils list so you will still have to pay the daily launch fees.....

REGISTRATION AND LAUNCHING FEES REQUIRED
1. Trearddur Bay Slip way.
2. Traeth Bychan Slip way.
3. Rhosneigr access point.
4. Beaumaris slip way.
5. Menai Bridge slip way (Porth y Wrach).
6. Rhoscolyn

a lot of the other slips are now gated or chained and you have to apply locally for access, usually you pay a fee and get a key......

Restricted slip ways:-
REGISTRATION REQUIRED, (other charges may apply including key holder system)
7. Llaneilian slip way – keys available through Llaneilian Community Council
8. Bull Bay – keys available through Amlwch Town Council
9. Moel y Don
10. Cemaes Bay – keys available through Llanbadrig Community Council
11. Sandy Beach access point.
12. Holyhead Sailing Club slip way.
13. Lligwy beach.
14. Church Bay
15. Penrhos beach (Holyhead).
16. Bol Sach slip way (coast guard slip way, Holyhead).
17. Fryars Bay

since the accident on The Menai a couple of years ago the local councils have been under pressure to tighten up registrations etc, it's also worth reading the section on local speed limits as there may be patrol boats out through the summer season......

7. Speed Restrictions for all powered craft:-
4.1 A wakeless speed is required within 50 metres of another Personal Watercraft, boat mooring, dock, swimmer, skier, angler, or fishing equipment.
4.2 Anglesey Council speed restrictions must be complied within in all designated areas.

https://www.anglesey.gov.wales/docum...at-byelaws.pdf

https://www.anglesey.gov.wales/docum...of-conduct.pdf

but, on the positive side, the above information does give you some clues as the where to visit when you are here, and there are plenty of destinations with no local restrictions which are worth looking at if the weather is kind then a trip to The Menai Straits is always worth the effort, and don't be put of by the navigation as there is always plenty of water through the Swellies for a rib at any state of the tide!

https://www.caernarfonharbour.org.uk/caernarfon-bar/

https://www.caernarfonharbour.org.uk...-the-swellies/

https://www.caernarfonharbour.org.uk...limit-zones-2/

Pilot's Cove on Llanddwyn Island in Caernarfon Bay is a great destination

we launch at Ty Calch just outside Caernarfon on The Menai, a trip around Anglesey is a full day but as long as you carry enough fuel it's worth the effort, or try a trip to Ty Coch pub on the beach at Morfa Nefyn on The Lynn Peninsula

there are sea caves in Gogarth Bay between Sth Stack & Nth Stack and at Rhoscolyn Head

Porth Diana in Treaddur Bay is worth a visit, just watch out for the rocks, they don’t take prisoners!!🫣🤣

Looks like a very interesting part of the world to explore by boat.

Is anything happening with Holyhead Marina nowadays?
