Holyhead Breakwater is located on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. It lies due east of Holyhead Mountain, and shields the harbour and port of Holyhead from the Irish Sea. The breakwater is 1.5 miles in length and holds a lighthouse at the eastern end to warn shipping as they approach the harbour. Holyhead is a 24 hour, deep water port, and is one of the main ferry terminals for Ireland. The Port of Holyhead is operated by Stena Line Ports Ltd, who are the statutory Harbour Authority. Holyhead Harbour was developed by the Chester and Holyhead Railway Company for its services to Ireland. Holyhead Sailing Club is based within the protection of Holyhead Breakwater with over 600 members and moorings for up to 170 boats. Holyhead Marina also sits within the protection of Holyhead Breakwater.
