About Moelfre

Gerald of Wales and other may sing the praises of their favourite places in Wales but for me one of my favourite places in the world is Moelfre on the island of Anglesey. Moel means a little hill and the fre- means bare. The little bare hill that rises out of the sea is everyone's image of a perfect seaside village. The street with its picturesque cottages that overlooks the shingle beach, dotted with bright boats, the two rocky arms that reach out to hug the little cove and the magnificent views of Snowdonia over the sea. Tuck a snug little pub called, the Kinmel Arms, into the corner and what could be more perfect on a summer's day.

I holidayed here since before I can remember and my children and their children too. An old fisherman with eyes as blue as the summer sea used to take out holidaymakers in his rowing boat. He was called Mr Owen but I always called him Mr Blue Eyes. My father sailed his home built Enterprise yacht from nearby Traeth Bychan and at night the tiny pub would be full of yachtsmen and fishermen and their families. The Kinmel Arms has expanded to take account of the growing holiday trade but I don't think that much else has changed.

Moelfre is famous for it lifeboat station and brave lifeboat crews. They have been awarded an amazing 37 medals for gallantry with two of the gold medals going to the most outstanding figure in the station's history, coxswain Richard (Dic) Evans. Now a bronze statue of Dic at the wheel of his lifeboat, stands overlooking the bay which he loved.

2009 marked the 150th anniversary of the wreck of the three masted clipper, the Royal Charter in hurricane force winds off Moelfre. Local gossip has it that much gold was washed ashore and when the customs men came searching for it the cunning housewives kept the gold in the teapot and brewed a nice pot of tea for the customs men while they searched. There was once a brand of tea called Golden Rain and this was supposed to be the source of its name. To celebrate the occasion the Moelfre Partnership with Lligwy and Traeth Bychan, bought a picture depicting the famous wreck from local artist, Keith Shone. It is now hung in the Seawatch Centre at Moelfre.

One hundred years to the day after the wreck of the Royal Charter a boat called the Hindlea foundered in hurricane force seas off Moelfre. The brave lifeboat crew brought many survivors ashore but lives were lost, including those of lifeboat crew members. A memorial to the Hindlea, and the bravery of the lifeboat crew, stands on the coastal footpath just outside the village. You can also find a memorial to the Royal Charter there.

Just one mile walk along the cliffs can be found the wonderful mile long crescent of sand called Lligwy Bay. Just off Lligwy is a curious little island with a distinctive little tower. This is Ynys Dulas and the tower was built in 1824 to store food and supply shelter for shipwrecked mariners.

The local Yacht Club is at Traeth Bychan, a sheltered sandy beach, and there are other water sports nearby including kayaking, kite surfing and fishing. Birdwatching flourishes on Anglesey and watching diving terns is a spectacle often seen in summer. Seals, porpoise and dolphins can often be seen. Ponies can be hired and a gallop along Llygwy's low water shoreline is an exhilarating experience.

Big boats and tankers can be spotted making their way to Liverpool, and in stormy weather they shelter in the bay with their lights shining over the dark waters at night.
