Llyn Alaw, Lakes and Reservoirs Llanerchymedd, Anglesey - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Ceidio Llanerchymedd Anglesey Wales
Llyn Alaw is located in the North of the county of Anglesey in North Wales. It is to be found 4 miles south west of Amlwch and 8 miles north of Llangefni. It is a man made reservoir, created in 1966, used to supply drinking water to the northern half of the island. Few notable rivers feed the lake with the water being largely generated through trapping the winter rainfall. The lake is popular with anglers, and visitors may purchase a days permit for trout fishing (worm, fly and spinner). There are fishing boats available for hire and wheelchair access to the boats is also available for the disabled. One end of the lake has been set aside as a bird sanctuary and there is a permanent bird hide that proves to be a popular place to view waterfowl. The lake hosts a wide variety of ducks, including mallards, teal, tufted ducks and goldeneyes, and during the breeding season black-headed gulls, common tern and tufted ducks nest on the islands in the lake. There are many walks and bicycle rides on the roads close to Llyn Alaw and they offer an alternative to the coastal roads when travelling from Amlwch to Holy Island.
