Discover Aberffraw, Anglesey

We cherish every corner of Anglesey, from its hidden gems, historic sites, and stunning beaches. Among these treasures, Aberffraw holds a special place in our hearts. This coastal village is steeped in history and is a short walk or drive to some of the more fascinating places on Anglesey, all in all a great base to explore everything Anglesey has to offer (in our opinion)!

The village itself was once the capital of the kingdom of Gwynedd, it is rich in history. It’s the site of the medieval court of the Royal House of Aberffraw, from which Llywelyn the Great, the defacto ruler of Wales, descended, it’s historical roots are reflected in its name and landmarks.

Coastal Path

Aberffraw is set right on the Coastal path, it is a walker’s paradise with plenty of options for all abilities. Follow the path down the estuary and you will see birdlife of all kinds or walk 7 miles north towards Rhosneigr where you will pass the historic site Barclodiad y Gawres.
Barclodiad y Gawres is a Neolithic burial chamber to which we would recommend a visit, not only for its history and heritage but the location and surround views are stunning. It’s a great place to relax and watch the sunset if we do say so. If the walk doesn’t suit you, there is a parking spot 2 miles down the road from Aberffraw where its approximately a 5–10-minute walk.

Another fantastic gem before the burial chamber is the St Cwyfan’s Church or Church in the Sea. The church used to be part of the mainland; however, over the century’s erosion has left it detached from the land. There has been a church on this site since the 7th century, the one you see today is dated from the 12th and 13th centuries. It’s well worth a visit at low tide when access is easy to the Island. It’s also a beautiful place to enjoy the summer evenings and on a clear night see thousands of stars.
